Wash and brush with confidence, who else has a cloth mouse pad that isn’t afraid of a wire brush!

Once upon a time, the mouse was available directly on the desktop; once upon a time, mouse pads were given away with computers, printed with small advertisements distributed casually on the roadside; and once upon a time, mouse pads became an indispensable consumable. A month ago, a friend bought four tiger talisman golden woo (another mouse pad name). The reason is, the mouse pad is not durable, smoking easily dirty, wash twice on the skin scrapped, and like the feel of this mouse pad, so a few more into the spare.

Product Recommendation: factory wholesale mouse pad custom

At that time I was very unconcerned, although often heard of the mouse pad skinning this thing, but I have the orange “Laser H1X” has been used for more than a year, washed three times, also did not see what the problem, wash with soft bristles brush, a little gentle not on the good. However, when I washed it for the fourth time, the problem of peeling came up. As shown in the picture above, I had no choice but to find a new pad.

The mat that peeled was an orange rough mat, which is nice to look at, but it doesn’t really stand up to dirt, and when it does, it’s very noticeable. So I decided to go for a black mat this time. The resin mats don’t play well with the game and I would have preferred a cloth mat. I chose this pad for two other reasons: firstly, because of QPAD’s name, and secondly, because it is waterproof and brush resistant. The price is not bad, so I ordered it in advance before the 11th of February.

The mouse pad itself is not much to look at, it’s black. There is a large logo in the bottom left corner and a logo in the top right corner. The size is 35x26cm and the thickness is only 2mm.

The surface of this mouse pad is made of a waterproof Koudoula nylon fabric, which is not the same as the usual texture of a normal cloth mouse.

Cordura is the name of the fabric used for the surface of this mouse pad.

The rubber texture on the back is not dissimilar to that of a normal mouse pad. There is no pungent odour, but when you get close you can smell a faint rubbery smell.

Tip: I personally simply summed up the following three methods to simply judge the mouse pad rubber: first, the taste. Good rubber products, in addition to the unique smell of rubber itself, is not other pungent and unpleasant smell; second, the appearance. The colour is uniform, no shades, or obvious colour block. Poor quality recycled materials tend to have more or less similar traces; thirdly, touch. When pressed with your fingers, it will feel soft and comfortable, and when released, it will spring back quickly to recover.

The thickness of the mat is only 2mm, there is no wraparound edge and the characteristic holes can be clearly seen on the side.

With the intention of trying it out, I poured a little water onto the mouse pad and left it to rest for about three minutes or so. It was rather similar to the state it was in on the lotus leaf, and quite fun to see the little drops of water drop by drop.

I wiped it off with a paper towel and no water marks could be seen on the mouse pad. This makes it easier to clean up, and even if it gets dirty and washed, you can wipe it and take it back.

How it works

I’ve been using it for about a week or so, and I occasionally play games. When I first started to use it, it felt quite different from my usual coarse and messy Rado H1X. It is much smoother, so the thicker mouse pad is generally defined as the ‘control’ version, while the finer pad is defined as the ‘speed’ version. Once you get used to it a little, you will find that the pad is smooth but not too difficult to control.

Many resin mouse pads can be incompatible with certain models of engine, and some of the previous pads with bright colours and patterns would have slight frame loss at the transitions, the solid colours were much better. I chose three mice to try out briefly: the entry-level Sailor KANA V1, the Sailor Rival 310, and the QPAD 8K.

For each of the three mice, I used 800 DPI values, drew a mosquito map, and a straight line. The other thing is to write down the model number of the mouse. The amount of data is not large enough to mean that there are no compatibility issues with my three mice, and there are no dropped frames. More would not be arbitrary to draw conclusions.

Someone has done a violent test, using a wire ball brush, scrubbing the surface, greatly break the strength of the conventional brush, wash and wipe clean, do not see any obvious damage. Of course I personally couldn’t be bothered to do this, but it was one of the factors that cemented my choice of this mouse pad.

Summary

The main advantage is the surface material, which is waterproof, stain resistant, quick drying and relatively easy to clean, which is a big advantage compared to a normal cloth mat. On the downside, I think the main thing is that it is on the expensive side, a 35x24cm Rado H1X medium mat only costs around $30. Of course, if the CD-35 could last two to three times as long as the H1X, it would be barely enough. I hope this mouse pad doesn’t disappoint me too much in the future.
