The Rat:


  • Ultraslick™
    Polymer Surface

  • Huge,
    massive, insanely big

  • More

  • Doesn’t move when you’re fragging


  • 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:

Much like the Everglide, except the surface is different. The surface looks like the Everglide surface except all of the ridges look to be cut off. The Ratpadz is noticeably smoother than the Everglide. The second thing that you notice about it is the acreage that you get with this mouse pad. This mofo is HUGE!

The Tests:

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail 6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail
.85s .98s .98s .88s .91s .98s .75s .85s

Average: .8975s

Ball Friction:

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail
7.0mm 6.0mm 5.5mm 7.0mm 7.0mm
6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail 9th Trail 10th Trail
6.7mm 6.25mm 6.4mm 6.4mm 6.8mm

Average: 6.51mm

Wow! The Ratpadz scored the best out of all the mouse pads we tested. Not only does it provide less friction on the base of the mouse, it provides more friction to the mouse ball. The Ratpadz scored the best out of both of the tests that we preformed. While I was doing this shoot out many of my friends were asking, “What’s the big deal, it’s just like a cutting board.” Well that got me thinking, how does all the mouse pads stack up to a cutting board? Well lets find out.
