XTracPads Fat Mat
A short while ago I was given an opportunity to road-test the Ripper XL v2 mouse mat, and gave it a thorough workout. After the completion of the review XTracPads contacted me again asking if I would be interested in reviewing their new mouse mat aimed at the Professional gamer, called the XTracPads Fat Mat . Considering the range of current mouse mats available to gamers; both casual and Professional, I was interested to see what the Fat Mat had to offer.
For those of you not familiar with XTracPads, let's hear what they have to say about themselves:
It certainly seems that XTracPads are held in quite high esteem for producing a quality product that can compete with the best when gaming, but its apparent popularity with vocations requiring a high degree of mouse accuracy for day-to-day work is also reassuring.
And here's what they have to say about the XTracPads Fat Mat:
Professional gamers travel from venue to venue and need a really high quality mouse surface that not only affords a great deal of space to move their mouse around on, but a really soft and thick backing that can overcome many desktop inconsistencies.
Desktop surfaces that are not exactly flat like pitted or dented surfaces are no longer a problem thanks to Fat Mat's thick backing. Coming in at a quarter of an inch thick, Fat Mat also can work as a wrist rest. Simply dangle a small part of the Fat Mat over the edge of your desktop surface and viola! Now your new elite mouse surface is also a wrist rest! Packed in a reusable clear plastic tube, you can re-roll the Fat Mat to transport it to wherever you may be headed.
Fat Mat is simply awesome!
So will the XTracPads Fat Mat have what it takes to make the grade in the Labs? What will it offer over and above the competition?
