Which mousepad would be better for razer deathadder mouse

The razer goliathus or razer sphex, why?

I'm soon gonna get my deathadder, but i'm currently using a cheap optical mouse on a table with no mousepad, so i'd want a recomendation as i can't choose which

Goliathus, mostly because the Sphex won't last very long. It'll wear out quickly because it's basically just a big sticker. I had one and it didn't even last a year. I replaced it with an aluminium pad which should practically last forever.

I'm using a Steelseries QcK Plus and it's very nice. It is very durable, it's lasted me a long time, is very smooth and super easy to clean. I rub it down with a wet rag and let it dry out, and it looks good as new. I suggest you check it out as well.

I have one of those and I like it not had it long enough to get dirty yet.

I bought 2 "Razer Sphex" mousepads, couldn't be more happier! It's fairly large width wise and I love the feel of it! It can easily roll up(like a burrito) and is extremely soft Definitely recommend it!(I bought 2 because 1 is for me and 1 is for my bro, he gets jealous )

Do mousepads really make a difference? I haven't used one for years on my gaming rig?

For my DeathAdder Black Edition I use SteelSeries QcK Mini.

For example, my DeathAdder is incompatible with my computer desk table surface. (stutters). I tried my desk with 3 different deathadders - same effect. The desk surface is black, consisting of very small bumpy dots and reflective in the place where my right hand (when using mice) polished it to smooth shiny surface. (The desk has been used for computers more than 10 years I think).

The surface of my desk is wooden & haven't had any problems with my MX518. Would I notice any difference getting a decent pad?

I used to have stutters when using 1000Hz polling on my Razer Imperator 2012, which I why I bought a pad. A firmware update has since fixed the issue completely though.

The mouse will glide easier accross the mat than your desk
The mouse feet will last longer
Desk finish will not wear away

That is about all.

I have used both speed and precision (I think that's what it's called, the one with the thicker weave?) versions of the Goliathus with a Lachesis and deathadder. Out of the 2 I like the precision one much better.

But now with my deathadder I use a Xtrac Ripper xxl which pwns both of them, it's a very smooth service more like the speed edition Razer but better quality, I think probably a bit finer weave, best thing about it though is that it's massive. It's a desk mat, my keyboard goes on it too
Highly recommend it!

a good quality mousepad will make any cheap mouse feel better.
