    Sharkoon has now expanded its specifically designed for gamers "Rush" product series to mouse pads: The Sharkoon Rush Gaming Mouse pad in its large size defines itself with precise sliding qualities and also with a new, strainable textile surface in particular for demanding PC gamers.

    Exceptional tightly woven fibers and an elaborate manufacturing process ensure the texture is abrasion resistant and water proof. Dust, crumbs, and liquids will not penetrate into the fabric and can simply be wiped off. Ruinous and unattractive coffee or sweat stains are a thing of the past. In addition, the granular texture ensures fast and precise mouse movements with the rubberized base keeping the pad in place even in the most hectic situations.

    The mouse pad has a thickness of 4mm and offers a 444mm x 345mm edge length which provides a generous action surface particularly for the Low-Sense-Gamer, who plays with less mouse resolution and requires freedom of movement. The cloth pad is suitable for all mouse types, and the mouse pad can simply be rolled together for easy transport.

    The Rush Outplay has already successfully passed the test of a demanding gamer. Jan "moon" Stolle, who is a multiple German Counter-Strike 1.6 champion with "Team ALTERNATE," provides the assessment: "The pad has a very fast surface due to the special yarn used. The Slap Stick Effect (Status Friction Effect) is reduced to a minimum by the rough surface texture. Therefore, even smaller mouse movements are extremely precise! The sensitivity remains constant during a long period. For me, a genuine alternative to my plastic pad! My recommendation!"

    End customers will find the Sharkoon Rush Outplay Gaming Mouse pad available immediately for the retail price 14.99 euros in authorized retailers.

    Nice, but what happens when wear sets in? Will it still be just as water resistant? €15 is a reasonable price though.

    :rolleyes:

    If they put it in the specs :"Pornography-proof" or label it a "Pornography-proof mousepad", they will make a LOT of sales :roll:

    I think it's like a "sealed" mesh. Water tight. The spongy cushion underneath could easily sop up water though. That doesn't really matter either, it will just stain the bottom of it.

    looks pretty good, Ive been looking for a new mousepad seeing as my free Asus one doesn't work well with my Razer Salmosa that I got from that 20 dollar deal a few months back. I need something with texture or all white (Im using a piece of paper now).

    I'd much rather have a liquid-resistant keyboard. One that you can spill stuff on and then just run it under the faucet to wash out the gunk. I know they make those silly gelly ones but they're horrible to type or play games on, I'm talking about a "gaming grade" board.

    Just a protip to all those who care. The best mouse pad ever is a piece of aluminum 12 x 8 inches, coated in Teflon. If costs $3, never wears out (unless you scratch the Teflon), is extremely easy to make, super fast, and accurate.

    my plastic pad has survived water, orange juice, tea, coffee, pepsi, etc.

    if you want liquid proof, dont use a freakin cloth pad >.<

    So it's basically just an overpriced, sliced, labeled and coated piece of neoprene?

    in marketing speak: value for money, precision cut, artistically decorated, brand name piece of next-generation technology.
