The speed by surface pad is definitely the best option for a slick hard pad.  No question.   Got mine in today.  Woot

Does this freeze your wrist upon touch? Does it heat up in a few seconds like a soda can, or longer like cast iron? lol

It stays fairly cool to the touch at all times.

Ordered it last night. Shipped at 2am from NorCal and will be delivered to SoCal with no ETA. I'm guess either tomorrow or Friday. Hopefully it's compatible with my G502, G700, and G500.

Received it. First aluminum pad. Compared to the 4HD it's replacing, it larger, and looks nicer. However the mouse tends to grab onto it more like a dirty cloth pad. I'm going to have to get used to it. It's not as glidey and free moving compared to the 4hd.

You have to oil it up
That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

😂😂😭

He's trolling, you don't put oil on the mousepad.

You might have to get some ptfe tape to help with the glide.

This pad is amazing, it's super slick, my Zowie FK2 loves it. I don't have as precise aim with a hardpad as I do with cloth. So this might not be as good for PC gaming. But for aim assist Black Ops 3 this thing is legit. I just throw the mouse in the general direction and let the aim assist take over. It's crazy.

I'd had an extra in my cart so I could monitor the stock.  I just know that when these are gone that that's it.  Saw that there were only 3 left so I pulled the trigger on the spare.  Now there's only 2 (if that).  Might want to hurry up lol.

There are still silver ones left, though the black looks better, and probably less chance of tracking issues.

I'm pretty sure you can contact Act-Labs and they will send you another one.

Possibly, but I'll just keep a spare in the closet.

Now as I say this, they just reupped the stock, so sky isn't falling lol.  Either way, I'm set.  I won't even look at another pad, and if something happens to the one I have, I'll pull the other out of the closet.
