Default Sphex or qck

I'm between those two options as a mouspad for wow/lineage 2.I'm concerned about which is more comfortable since I've been having some wrist pains with my old plastic pad and wether the qck(wow worgen edition)is washable,which is unlikely.
Thanks in advance.

LOL, it's a mousepad. Most people just use swag ones. But I have a soft Razer one, and it feels fine. Durability is a 'lil bad though (cloth peels from the rubber bottom and gets dusty).

I know it's just a mousepad but if u can reserve one person's 2 minutes to enjoy a more suitable product I see no reason not to do so.Thank you for answering.

I had a QCK+, and it was very comfortable. I never tried washing it.

I use a QcK Mass (the extra thick black one) and its very comfortable - especially if you dont use a wrist wrest when gaming say when usign a claw grip- and love it. No idea if its washable but it was worth every cent. It does collect lint and dust, BUT its getting even smoother as it wears unlike most plastic which just plain suck after awhile. IMHO...go cloth or go aluminum. Just my personal preference / 2 cents / etc /etc:)

YMMV

I've used both Razer and Steelseries pads and personally prefer my Artisan. Might be worth a look for the OP: Artisan Gaming Mouse Pads

I don't recommend the sphex for 1 very simple reason. It's just a sheet of rough plastic covering your table. After a while the adhesive wears out and you'll have to throw it out. While it still sticks, the pad offers no dampening whatsoever, so expect sounds like a wood workshop coming out of your table
