Do you prefer cloth or hard pads? I can't think of much atm but I doubt you'd like the puretrak talent as it has a noticeable loss in glide once saturated in sweat.

Looks pretty bad in this sector.

Mice with optical sensors are really good at lower DPI counts but because of the advent of the Laser sensors their architecture isn't really upgraded and high end. Therefore even if some have nice high sense DPI counts, they work better at their lower settings.

Lazer mice would be better in this regard as they are developed to be more high end, but they're still all pretty flawed. The Avagao 9500 based mice (Xai, Sensei, G9x, G500...) have high DPI, high tracking speeds, low lift off... but the tracking is a little inconsistent and has a slight amount of acceleration to it. So they're nice but not perfect for gaming.

The Philips Twin-Eye mice (most Razer high-end mice) have/would have perfectly precise tracking, but suffer from the ability of this sensor to also track the z-axis. This effect can be felt especially when you use a soft mousepad and click the mouse buttons, in which case the mouse sinks a little into the pad. The sensor is capable of tracking this height difference and therefore the cursor will jump for very few pixels, which is very annoying when you're clicking often. By using a hard mousepad, this one is easy to fix. But it's also susceptible to vibrations (again: tiny jumps of the mouse), which can make the cursor move by itself if you have a subwoofer turned on loudly underneath your desk. For some this should be no problem (hard pad + no subwoofer) but in order to minimize these issues Razer nontheless implemented an ugly "feature" into their firmwares. It's dynamic dpi scaling which will kill your accuracy with these mice and it's why I can't recommend them until Razer gives users the possibility to turn it off.

So from the above I'd take the Zowie AM (although I'm not sure if it tracks properly at its 2300 CPI setting, maybe someone can clarify this) or build a KinzuAdder out of a Kinzu and a Deathadder 3G if the DPI is enough for you.

I think hes asking about mouse surface like glossy vs matte rubber finish on mice?

I prefer rubber matte finsih over the glossy. Just hate the gunky feeling of holding a glossy mouse after a while with all the dead skin cells floating around haha

However, the good thing about this is it's the easiest thing in the world to clean it, due to it being machine washable.

I threw it in along with a load of dark clothes and it came out feeling brand new, though it did take forever to dry out fully.

I prefer glossy top, rubberish sides, like the ime 3.0, I find full rubber just makes the palm of the hand sweat more, But since i grip the mouse on the sides, the rubber sides still adds more than enough grip over a slick glossy side any day of the week
