An XL not very good mouse pad that took forever to get here, not rolled and incredibly wrinkled. Still looks sweet though.

Hey, I stumbled across this thread and am really loving the commentary on different types of mousepad. I was making my own a few years back and considered becoming an OCN affiliate "artisan" type deal to sell them, but the material cost was extremely high and I figured it was too much of a niche product to get much success.

Anyways, in case you were curious I was making full carbon fiber hard mouse pads. I experimented with high gloss/semi gloss/low gloss/textured styles. They were incredibly rigid and even more impressively light weight - But mainly the high gloss pads had super low friction and looked neat. That was the big draw to them. I fragged many a CS:S player in OCN's own server using my fancy mouse pad. Haha.



(That's easily $300 in materials there. And it was all used up on r&d runs by yours truly.)





With my beloved second gen G5. (It looks textured but it's not - The surface would feel much like a mirror or piece of glass)

Sorry I'm not selling anything - It would cost more to make the items than they would sell for, making no profit. More than anything I was looking to add a little bit to the discussion and show some of the outside the box ideas people can use for their own purposes. If anybody is interested in DIY'ing their own high end mouse pad I'd be more than happy to give pointers though.
