Artisan mousepads - are they worth the hype?

My QCK heavy is getting old and I'm trying to figure out what their controlled equivalent is but they seem pricey. Anybody have experience with them? Worth it or no?

I have a Zero Mid, in my opinion its not worth it just due to the fact it has a higher difference in x/y glide than my QcK Heavy does, and its a massive dust magnet

Also, it wont stick on my table properly, even if i put a bit of water there, when it dries up it swooshes around

That alone would throw me off completely.



The QCK heavy had perfect control until I got my RVU which is too fast so I'm looking for something with more control.

If you want something slower i wouldent be looking at artisan

er... did you try and check beardedb0b on youtube? or his site?, i think he did a lot of pressure gauge tests with a variety of mousepads

No experience with it, but on the same boat as you
Considerable yet they are expensive and the corners are not stitched ~ strongly unsure
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...0Ww/edit#gid=0
this might help you for alternatives

I own the Goliathus Control but it's surface could be faster, although good enough
Soo i keep my eyes on the Hayate Otsu, same as the Endorphy Cordura Speed
- although something soft texture like is nice for the wrist
If you scroll down in the doc, you'll find an old but well written review about the Artisan's
Focus more on the rated list tho and find first something comparable you optimally can try somewhere locally
~ well it would be great if you know already what you like, but still

EDIT:
Be sure to also check the Longevity & Pricing Tab
Washable is important unless you have a glass or fully metal base - mousepad
And so also coating longevity after X months of usage

This is perfect, thanks!



I've heard good things of the Zowie GSR.

Artisans have been stitched for a while if you opt for it. I don't have a slow pad preference so I can't help you there.

Ordered the Zowie GSR. I'm pretty eager to try some of artisans offerings so maybe once this pandemic dies down I'll do some reviews.

My zero xsoft and hayate otsu mid were absolutely worth it, considering how long zero lasted and still good to go. I also get issues with the pad not sticking to my ikea desk but I just used thin double-sided tape which artisan recommended if you have issues with compatibility.

If you want a really slow pad the black Zowie GSR is definitely up there with the slowest I've tried. Feels like dragging your mouse through mud lol. My Artisan FX Zero is pretty slow too, but I haven't used it that much so I'm not entirely sure if it's faster or slower than the GSR.
