On the value for cost side my favorite mousing surface is still a piece of plane bond paper and a little sticky tape to hold it to the desk. Works better than every other moue pad I have tried that are one thousand times the price.

I'm currently using a pad from xtracpads .com. It works well with my mx518. I also sprayed a little pledge on it for a little added slickness.

I use a Razer ExactMat, it works great for me. I might try out one of their newer models, and also Steelseries has a new non-cloth type. I might try them out.

Evilyeti, a mouse pad does make a difference. I was playing Counterstrike Source with an Allsop mouse pad, Logitech optical mouse and my scores were sucking, they always seemed to get a bead on me before I could aim. I was always cleaning crap off of my mouse feet too. I went to Futureshop and bought a Rocket fish game pad,


Rocket Fish Gaming Pad at Futureshop

it has a control or speed surface like some of the more expensive pads by flipping it and it is aluminum.

Now I never have to clean my mouse feet, I use the control surface, and I've been owning in the pubs. In fact there were a couple of times I was so surprised at how quickly I was able to react to someone popping up and then headshot them, I was worried that I was going to get called out as a hacker.

The only problem with the pad is if you don't like the rocketfish logo and the feet that are necessary on each side to allow you to flip it.

The plus side is you can pick it up at your local futureshop and return it if you just don't like it... I still have mine.

Thanks, I never thought Futureshop would carry gaming pads... I guess i will go try this one since i will be able to return it if i dont like. Before i go spending money online.
