The Skypad is basically a G440 with a little more friction but better control and lasts forever. My G600 feels great on it, and my Zaunkoenig M1K practically disappears on this pad.

Also, the surface is flat unlike some hardmats that are convex due to having no solid foundation like metal or something. That's part of the reason why the G440 is hard to control; the center is warped out.
does any one have a close-up is the surface totaly flat and smooth? sky pad

Yes, it is textured. The dots are the reflections from the light. The I-2 is textured but much finer and softer to the touch. The texture type of the skypad is very similar to what you get with your typical hardmat.
