Icemat 2nd Edition Mouse Mat

Hardware Acquired: Icemat 2nd Edition
Of course every mouse mat will take time to get used to, and it has taken me a while to adjust to the new glass surface, however I am glad I have done so. I would recommend the Icemat to any serious gamers out there, as its balance of speed and control is not found on many other leading brands, and it certainly gives you an edge over opponents when you need to adjust where your cursor goes on the fly.
The only downside I can find is that which I mentioned earlier, sometimes the rubber feet are just not enough to keep the pad in place, and I find myself moving it with my forearm, however this all depends on your desk surface, and how you handle your mouse. I recommend just taking a second to see if you apply a lot of forward pressure on your mousemat before purchasing.
Even this slight problem however does not take away how unbelievably well manufactured the Icemat 2nd Edition is. I can say without doubt that if Icemat put this much effort into all of their products, then they will go far as a company.
Overall, for a gaming peripheral, do not be fooled into thinking that a mousemat cannot improve performance, as this is most definitely not the case. I urge you to go out and buy an Icemat, and see for yourself how much it can change your game. Also do not forget how great it looks on your desk.
+ Looks great
+ Performs Amazingly
+ Perfect Speed/Precision Balance
+ Includes Padsurfers
- Rubber Feet do not cement the mousemat to the desk
- Does not perform without the Padsurfers
- Expensive, although worth it
A big thanks to Icemat for the product sample.
