Zowie TF Series Mousepads

A closer look and that coating

 
A Close Look
 
Both the Zowie TF series mats are 100% cloth which makes for a very comfortable experience when in use. The edges of the mats are rolled to provide additional comfort, and finished with a triple-stitched anti-fray edge to ensure that they never suffer from the regular problem cloth mats have of the edges gradually decaying under hard use. The embroidered Zowie logo in the corner is a little raised off of the mat, but is tucked away so far and so small that it will not interfere with the use of the mat at all.

So What's So Special?
 
I'm sure many of you are sitting there going "yeah it's a cloth mat, whoo". Ahh but here is the part where Zowie makes this mat go from the average to the extraordinary. The TF series has a coating that still gives the comfort and accuracy of a cloth mat, whilst providing the speed of a hard mat.
 
The most impressive feature, by some distance, is the water-repellent nature of the coating though. It's not the easiest thing to take a photograph of, because it's that mind blowing, but here is some water we placed on it an hour before taking the photographs and as you can see it hasn't soaked in at all. To test it to the extreme it was placed on the draining board, had a pint of water tipped all over it and an hour later the water just ran off and the mat was dry. Completely dry. So if you are the kind of user who occasionally knocks over a drink or has similar liquid issues, this is absolutely perfect.

Time for a some tests, and we'll wrap this up.
