Or the G502 or naos 7000?
The G502 looks really uncomfortable and the naos is not for sale in local stores where i live

Let me ask you guys, do you think mouse pads really make a difference ...I've been using a Logitech G5 (laser) from the original XIM days on just about anything hard & flat ...and seemed fine

I have g602 + Edge and It is flawless, Not many buttons ( But necessary ones)  500 hz wireless receiver, very LONG lasting batteries Even in performance mode, very suitable for every circumstances : desktop console, desktop pc ( Just move the receiver from xim to front pc usb)  laptop console with sony navigator or... G13 or whatever wireless you prefer ;)

The G602 only advantage is long battery life and an OK sensor. Thatís it. Itís a bad design for the thumb and low DPI and also heavy like an Elephant especially with two batteries. I have it so I know what I am talking about.

Personally, I like having a pad. What you use doesn't really make a difference. I've used both a cheap memory foam pad, and I use a ROCCAT mat at home.

Yes, pads can make an enormous amount of difference.  Different sensors work best on specific surfaces.
