Zowie by BenQ G-SR SE glide experience when worn down

Correct me if I'm wrong but the G-SR (black) and G-SR SE (blue, red, divina pink, divina blue) are made with the same material. However, the SE's are coated or have some sort of surface change which changes the experience (glide speed, resistance, stopping power, etc...) even though the material is the same.

I am wondering if after long use with the G-SR SE if the coating will eventually wear out and the experience with the mousepad will feel just like the G-SR. Or if the two mousepads somehow provide a different experience no matter the age.

always different. g-sr-se (for me at least) takes longer to wear out than a lot of other pads. after using the old blue g-sr for ~8 months with low sens I got a g-sr-se and it wasn't too terribly different (they have same starting surface). old blue g-sr was washed, have washed g-sr-se a few times and any changes are mainly due to feet/dust etc getting stuck in pad like any other cloth pad and only make a very small difference until being washed. It definitely wears down a bit after long periods of time like other pads, but not in the sense that there's a "coating" like some sort of waterproof coating. The pad just has a print on it which means it actually has a new/different layer of top surface material, not just something that's sprayed on or whatever

I don't really like the black g-sr, g-sr-se is one of the best pads I've tried. Something like hybrid or hard pads vs standard cloth is obviously a larger difference, but the difference between these regular is not super subtle and something you can absolutely notice even without a side by side comparison

I am assuming the black g-sr is not great with humidity, but I have heard from sweaty people/people who live in somewhat humid areas that the g-sr-se can get a bit of a minor sticky feeling to touch

thanks for the reply.

I am currently on the black g-sr and it has a bit too much stopping power for me. After I break that initial stopping power the mouse glides a bit too fast for me. Do you recommend any other pads that would fit the description comparable to the black g-sr of less initial friction and a bit more friction when gliding? I have been considering the g-sr-se because I've heard it has less stopping power but I'm not sure as I would assume the g-sr-se glides much quicker.
