How to flatten a curl-packaged mouse pad?

I had that pad. Return it/throw it.

I couldn't flatten it properly, and when it was sort of flat by putting it back in the box reversed, it sort of got flatter. 

Doesn't matter, it tracks like garbo

No, but I've used both the s,m and large one. 
They're great, definitely the best all rounder as it works on all mice sensors. If it's anything like those, then go get it.

I use a laser mouse, so I use the Allsop XL raindrop mousepad, and it's a bit better. Not a big deal, a bit less kinetic and static friction. It's noticibly worse on all optical sensors unless you have a DA6400 which is the exception. I use a G9X so it's not really a problem for me.

using that pad is a mistake

it's gerber as hell
They even have a spawn edition
I tried that as well and it's just a rocket spammer edition, there is no stopping friction

sk spawn mad

I'm not gonna throw it away, it gets the job done very well. I'll try to iron it.yonyz

 

Mousepads are so much thicker than clothes and not made of cotton, that sounds super sketch haha.  Let us know if that melts the fabric or is successful.

Hi,

I have a mouse pad called Zowie GT-F, and it was packed when it's curled and I've had it for more than 6 months already and it hasn't gotten a tiny bit flatter than it was initially.

I wonder, what can I do to make it flat? It's not made of plastic, it's textured and "100% cloth", as the manufacturer states.

Thanks.

I was thinking of getting a goliathus control extended edition. Do you have one? If so do would you recommend it?

Love my Goliathus control. It improved pretty much everything in terms of precision, gliding, etc. Went from 1.5 kdr to 2.2 kdr.  I was averaging 2.7-2.9 at one point with the Goliathus but I got lazy. It has a nice texture to it. Btw, I use a Deathadder. I used a Qck Steelseries before and I was very unhappy with it. There's no friction whatsoever. My mouse glided all over the place. If you're just a casual gamer and you don't play any online shooters seriously, then it doesn't matter much.

I have the goliathus control and the only problem I had with it was with my deathadder, the gliding feet corners got stuck in the fabric a lot and made the pas all rough over time.

Well, if it's cloth then just iron it.

Zubin has a DA, when he used the da3500 and the pad he didn't mention any issues. I was also using the abyssus and the goliathus control l and didn't have any issues with the feet.

Don't bother, that pad tracks like garbage.

Could be just me then, I got a new one though and it hasn't happened again since

Put something heavy like a big book on it?

since this thread is about mousepads, can anyone recommend me one?  I have an optical mouse (Razer brand)

seanmcloughlin

Razer goliathus control mousepads are pretty damn good. They have a speed version too but I heard they're not great

 

Speed is good too, it's personal preference.
k1llsen uses the speed edition, but the allsop raindrop is just a better version of it.
control is better overall, I am going to assume he just got used to the speed edition.
I mean k1llsen is so good he could use anything.

oh and this is k1llsen, k1llsen da aimbotter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTmHOqzY3K0&t=29m30s

 

. Yes ironing it lightly will fix it, you can even use a heatgun. I did that with the cheap g9x mousepad. Heatgun + ruler

We use the Steel Series  cloth mouse pads. 

They are inexpensive, and seem to work great. I use a DeathAdder, my gf uses a DiamondBack.

just a warning to anyone who sees this thread avoid qck+ at all costs, it's terrible, it's like a sheet of paper and has no stopping power (there's a thick version esport edition I think, that one is fine) qck heavy is good too

Now I am not quite sure which ones we went with, I just remember it was Steel Series. (doesn't seem to say on the pads themselves)

I don't think it was the thickest, but it wasn't the thinnest ones either. (though when I upgrade I am thinking about going to the thickest option they have)

cool, thanks, just ordered one

I do have that Spawn edition. Like I said, I like using it, but now I fear using an iron would destroy it. I did try a few days with books and dumbbells and what not, they didn't help...

You don't have to put the iron on high and push down on it for 15 mins straight.  Just put the heat on low and use a bit of water.  If you ever iron anything in your life it should be pretty simple.

I can also vouch for the qck heavy, great pad.
