Default Jittery Mouse, bad mousepad?

NCIX.com - Buy Razer Goliathus Fragged Omega Mouse Pad Control Edition - RZ02-00211200-R3M1 In Canada.
I bought this mouse back in august and I never played any games. I have always since then had this problem where the mouse literarly skips pixels and jitters. My mouse if the logitech G5. The mouse is smooth and perfect when I used a book/paper as a mouse pad but with this mouse pad it jitters like a *******
Any help so I could determine that the mouse pad is the problem not my mouse. I can't use my table cause its glass.
Any help is appreicated
On the left is with a book under my mouse the right is with this Razer mouse pad. I just started getting back into Counter Strike and TF2 and this is really pissing me off.

My old G7 had problems with the Goliathus as well. It's most likely the surface

The answer seems pretty simple... If the problem only occurs when using it on the mousepad, it's clearly a tracking problem on that mousepad. You answered this question yourself.

It's not one or the other that is the problem. It's using them together.

Personally, I'd head on over to the HWC store and get yourself a REAL mouse pad! I have one and it's AWESOME!

That is lame I just wasted $15 on a mouse pad to find out it is incompatible.. Do you guys think NCIX will return it? Since when are mouse pads incompatible, like what has this world come to...
I think I'm going to buy one of those hard mouse pads.
Thanks for the replies, it was appreciated.

You'll be charged a 15% restock fee on the $15 pad. I don't know if it's worth your time/shipping (or do you live in the vicinity of a NCIX store?). Donate it to a friend or family member and buy a new one.

I called Razer explained the situation and they said it was the mouse. So I called logitech and my mouse is easily 3+ years old and out of warranty but they are sending me a new one :) Logitech might be the best company evar.
