I've used different zowie mousepads for a while now, my previous main being the zowie g-sr-se blue. I thought I'd get the red version as it compliments my setup colours better. What I can say about this one is that they are super smooth to track on. Smoothest mousepad I've ever used. It doesn't have as much control as the gsr, but that's up to you to decide on what you want. Definitely my favourite mousepad yet though.
