Great for laser sensors, but also deteriorate quickly.
Leather mousepads are another popular option, and they work well with both optical and laser sensors. They're more durable than cloth mousepads and can withstand a lot of wear and tear, but they also require more maintenance since leather is prone to drying out over time.
Great choice for optical sensors, but they are more expensive.
Metal mousepads have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their durability and ability to withstand heavy use without showing signs of wear or tear. They tend to be heavier than other materials though so if you're looking for something lightweight, they might not be the best option for you. They also have the highest price tag of all the mousepad materials.
Natural Latex Mousepads
Best for laser sensors and has a high price tag.
As the name suggests, natural latex mousepads are made from pure latex rubber. They're the best option for gamers with laser sensors because they offer the most consistent tracking performance. However, they also come with a high price tag and require more maintenance than other materials.
Synthetic Latex Mousepads
High resistance to wear and tear, handles more punishment than natural latex
Fully synthetic SBR latex foams have superior water resistance, heat resistance, abrasion resistance, low-temperature flexibility, and heat aging properties then blended latex. SBR also has good electrical insulation, alcohol resistance, oxygenated solvent resistance, and mild acid resistance. SBR can be successfully bonded to a wide range of materials.
SBR is a superior material for mousepads because it has the ability to handle more punishment than natural latex. It's also resistant against water, heat and wear-and even acidity.
Precise, pricey and stylish, also less likely to not lose its shape overtime.
Glass mousepads have been around for a long time, but they've recently become popular among gamers because of their cool look and amazing precision. Glass is a solid and stable material that does not lose its shape over time, making it a long-lasting choice for your mousepad. It also offers a smooth surface that is comfortable to use and provides amazing tracking performance for both optical and laser sensors. If you looking for long lasting quality this is the mousepad for you.
