Gaming mice are an essential peripheral for any self-respecting gamer. And when we think of our main weapon to play video games, we will not do it without seeing it accompanied by a mouse pad on which to slide.
But... which mouse pad should we choose? There are so many, that this task can become difficult. At Newskill we have prepared a gaming mouse pad guide to help you decide which one to choose.
First of all, the main feature that we have taken into account to write our gaming mouse pads guide is the type of material with which they have been manufactured. Depending on this factor we will find one texture or another, which will allow us to play more or less smoothly with our gaming mouse. The material we choose will also depend largely on our mouse. In the case of optical mice, the mouse pad should be as uniform and reflective as possible.
The most common and most used in the world of video games are cloth mouse pads, but we can also choose plastic or aluminum. We can find different types of touch, from the smoothest to the roughest. As well as different types of finishes: differentiating between rigid and flexible. The rougher the surface, the more stable the control will be and the more precise the gaming sessions will be. The base is made of rubber and allows this support surface for the mouse not to move from its place thanks to its non-slip property. The shape depends on the manufacturer, but you will usually find them square or rectangular depending on the size.
Control vs. speed... or both?
The Atami range of gaming mouse pads consists of two distinct models: the Atami Speed and the Atami Control. As their names already indicate, one will give us more speed and the other more precision. Two elements that should not be missing in any good gaming mouse pad guide. Both models have a natural rubber base that adapts to all types of surfaces and are available in four sizes (S/M/L/XL).
The Atami Speed is made of pressed microfiber and has a laser-cut edge. Ideal for players who prioritize speed above all else in their playing sessions. It is characterized by a great sliding capacity.
The Atami Control has a surface of textured fibers and its edges are stitched, which gives it greater control in the movement. Lower speed and higher precision.
However, speed does not always have to be at odds with precision. The range of Bahamut gaming mouse pads has a pressed microfiber surface that will give the player speed and precision in each of his movements. It has a rubber base that will give us a total grip on any surface. The edges are stitched with double braiding and its thickness (only 3mm) make the Bahamut series one of the lightest gaming mouse pads. It is available in four sizes.

Size does matter
Another of the fundamental elements that we have considered in our gaming mouse pads guide has been the size. Not all gamers have the same habits in their daily ritual as gamers. Nor are all mousepads the same, nor do they allow the same use. On the one hand, the thickness of the mouse pads is important, usually ranging from 2 to 5 mm. But even more important are the dimensions of the mouse pad we select for our mouse. We must choose a size with which we take advantage of our skill. If the mouse pad does not fit the size we want, we will play the same and our winning ratio will drop (even if we are using a keyboard cucumber like the Suiko).
Currently there are different size proposals in the gaming mouse pads market. From size S to size XL, the latter being the most requested by gamers. Such large dimensions allow us to support not only the mouse but also our keyboard, as well as the microphone (do you know Kaliope?) or headphones.
The Atami Control, Atami Speed and Bahamut models come in four sizes (S, M, L and XL) and Nemesis V2 is available in XL.
