Alugraphics. Expensive but they come with a 10 year warranty. Unless you don't Aluminum. They are great though, super thin as well.

Super fast

https://www.arktis.de/alugraphics-gamerpro-xxl-alu-mauspad/ The site is in German but you can translate it with Chrome. Took 7 days to get delivered to the UK. So i am guessing 10-20 Days worldwide and 2 days within Germany.

Or

Control

Or Func if you can find them somewhere, they are discontinued though. So hard to find.

question for you...


Do all aluminum pads smear?



I actually have (from a random construction project) tried using aluminum, but after a very short amount of time, it starts to leave a silver smear on any skin that touches it, kind of like writing a paper with a super messy pencil. Cleaning helps, but it doesn't take long at all to get super messy again.



Is it because I am using raw 1/4" thick polished aluminum? Are the Alu mouse pads actually mixed metal alloy? maybe some sort of coating? they make for a wonderfully fast surface, just trying to understand why mine (not bought as mousepad) sucks so bad!

I love my Roccat Alumnic, and has two side "slippery" and a tad rougher side, it works great and hasn't lost any details and stays in one place. You can probably find one for around $40, well worth it. I had this pad for 4 years BTW, again NO wear that I can feel or see.

yup it's the raw aluminium. aluminium mousepads are actually anodized, which stops this, and makes it feel better as well.

to OP, this is what you need:

super low price and everything, very fast glide, and seems to last a long long time.

Pretty much what munchzilla answered. The Alugraphics (10 Years warranty) one for example has an aluminum oxide coating that has some grid lasered into it, so it works with basically any sensor. That one doesn't leave anything on your hands or mousefeet. And anything like plastic residue from your mousefeet or sweat buildup is easily cleaned by using a damp cloth.
