The Attack Pad from Everglide:


  • New
    FineCell® Texture

  • More

  • Doesn’t
    move when you’re fragging


  • Small

  • Doesn’t
    soak up sweat

  • If
    you live in a high dust environment (my dorm room) the sweat and
    the dust forms to make a nice layer on the rollers and has to be
    cleaned often.

  • Some
    optical mice may have problems

  • You have to clean the mouse pad

First Impression:

It’s a bit smaller than what I would like it to be, it was the smallest mouse pad that was tested. The surface of the mouse pad feels grainier than the Ratpadz so I thought it would give a little more traction to the mouse ball. Another first impression of the Everglide, and the Ratpadz was “Damn these look like a cutting board, how hi-tech can they be they just took a cutting board that someone beveled the edges one.” Well lets see how this mouse pad fairs in our tests.

The Tests:

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail 6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail
.87s 1.06s .91s 1.0s .94s .87s .98s .92s

Average: .94375s

Ball Friction:

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail
7.2mm 6.6mm 7.0mm 6.7mm 5.6mm
6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail 9th Trail 10th Trail
7.2mm 7.2mm 6.7mm 6.8mm 6.2mm

Average: 6.77mm

Ouch. Yes the mouse did slide across the surface with very little friction, but unfortunately so did the mouse ball, scoring the worse out of all mouse pads we tested. I really thought the rougher surface of the Everglide was going to increase the traction on the ball but I guess I was wrong. Well with the glorious stumble of Everglide lets so how its supposed counter-part does the Ratpadz.
