Cloth mousepads were originally invented as a surface to “grab the mouse by the ball”, so to speak. Back in the days when mice were relatively new, they used small rubber balls that moved two rollers (for X and Y cursor position). The average desk didn’t provide enough traction (especially when the mouse ball got dirty), so a good quality cloth mousepad was absolutely essential.
Today there is no longer a “need” for cloth mousepads, and they really only survive because people have grown familiar with how they feel. Choosing the right mousepad for you is a matter of personal preference. Twitch gamers may prefer ultra-slick polycarbonate or aluminum surfaces, as today’s optical and laser mice glide effortlessly on them.
If you prefer the tactile feel of a good cloth pad, but desire a super-sized surface, then the SteelSeries QcK Heavy Mousing Surface may be just what you have been looking for.
The SteelSeries QcK-line of mousepads are made of high quality cloth material, providing a precise and consistent glide. All mousepads feature a specially designed non-slip rubber base which prevents the pads from sliding, no matter what surface the mousepad is placed on.
The mousepads differ in dimensions and thickness, but not in precision, glide or quality. As some of the mousepads are very large, we highly recommend measuring how much space you have on your desktop before ordering.
