Gel mouse pad is mainly divided into soft and hard, soft mouse pad is very common. There are thick and thin. The surface is chemical fiber material, and the bottom is non-slip rubber. Soft mouse pad is cheap, which reducing wrist pressure and easily to carry, not like hard mouse pad. It’s enough for the general office crowd or the player to use it. Hard mouse pad to high-end, usually aluminum alloy base, the surface has a special wear-resistant material. Hard mouse pad is suitable for fever level players, because it is aluminum alloy base, and the mouse will not have a slight shift on the rubber base (the mouse pad has elastic deformation, so hard mouse pad positioning is more accurate. Surface special materials can also reduce friction, in high-intensity games more easily mobile mouse, competitive players preferred.
The biggest difference between a good mouse pad and a different mouse pad is whether the surface is flat or not. A uneven mouse pad may make you lose frames in the game, which is fatal in e-sports ‘s game. Now many players want cloth feel and the comfort of rubber soles, if the mouse pad can not achieve the rubber sole completely flat and cloth surface leveling, which is an inappropriate mouse pad. So when you choose the mouse pad, first making sure that the mouse pad is suitable for your feeling, then put the mouse you usually use to experience whether it is smooth, accurate or not, and whether the frame is lost.
I am assuming you are using an optical mouse.
Don’t use any mouse pad with multiple colours (such as a company LOGO or other coloured drawing/print). As long as you have something with a reasonably smooth surface, such as a sheet of buff coloured cardboard (like a thin cardboard file divider), you will be fine.
I recommend a Cerulian 3 button ultra mini optical mouse “NJ94JA” or a later version of it.
