What's the best mouse pad for me?

Especially for Counter Strike: GO

My settings are:

  • Mouse: MadCatz M.M.O. 7
  • Mouse driver dpi: 800
  • Windows dpi: standard
  • Acceleration: off
  • Mouse grip: palm
  • Finger set: 1+2+2

I know that for some mouses coloured pads might not be the best option.
Any size will work.

    What is the maximum size the mouse pad can be? Are you okay with colors and/or designs? – Adam Oct 16 '15 at 19:39

    @Adam any size will be good. I heard that for son mouses coloured pads might not be the bed option – Mateusz Sowiński Oct 16 '15 at 20:23
  • @Adam, He's asking for a gaming mousepad for shooting games.... size and colors would be irrelevant. Gaming mouse pads are usually not meant to be portable, so it doesn't matter even if it's half a metre by half a metre (never seen that one before!). – Pacerier Nov 8 '15 at 2:30
  • @Pacerier Size and colors are absolutely relevant when recommending a product. Many people use massive pads for gaming and others only have a tiny space to work with. – Adam Nov 8 '15 at 2:49
  • @Adam, I have enough space – Mateusz Sowiński Nov 8 '15 at 17:55

I've had excellent luck with the razer goliathus, assuming you want a 'soft' mousepad.

I've had a few others but this has a few features that make it a decent choice.

The edges are stitched, so it won't split. This is a critical feature in terms of long term use. I've had lesser gaming mousepads have their top surface peel off.

You have two options for surfaces - If you're a twitch gamer, go for the slick surface of the speed varient, if you want more control (and I'm guessing from the relatively low DPI, you're a precision player) there's the control version. I've got both (on different systems) and I'm relatively happy with both.

There's multiple sizes (I went with large on the speed pad, small on the control version) to suit your playing style as well.

  • Can you tell in what way does those 2 versions differ? speed one is like easier to move or what? – Mateusz Sowiński Oct 19 '15 at 15:21
  • Yes, since its smoother. – Journeyman Geek Oct 19 '15 at 19:47
