Razer Unleashes The Ultra-Smooth Razer Ironclad Performance Mousepad

Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today announced the Razer Ironclad elite hard gaming mouse mat, the only metal mat in Razer’s product range built to enhance and optimize the gliding capabilities of your mouse for unparalleled mousing comfort and control.

Equipped with a finely sandblasted surface, the Razer Ironclad minimizes hand discomfort and feels smooth to the touch, allowing for effortless and natural mouse movement over its sleek top. It features just the right amount of friction to deliver the precise targeting you need to eradicate all competition with sharpshooting accuracy without abrasive results.
“The Razer Ironclad stands apart from the pack because it delivers the highest form of comfort and long-lasting performance with its ultra-smooth surface and sturdy metal body,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “We understand the diversity of gamers out there, from ones who demand a large surface area to those who want superior tracking precision. We produced the Razer Ironclad to make winning feel easy, and give every type of gamer the feel, traction and durability that they need to do so.”

Made from anodized aluminium, the Razer Ironclad features a robust unibody construction for reinforced strength and extreme durability to withstand the test of time in any gaming environment. Its extra-large surface area caters for low-sensitivity settings and wide sweeping movements. Gamers can now have a premium combination of both precision and reliability for those kill-or-be-killed moments in gameplay.

The Razer Ironclad combines premium comfort, well-built resilience, and high precision tracking with its ultra-smooth sandblasted surface and extra-wide anodized aluminum body, providing gamers with the ultimate long-lasting hard gaming mouse mat. The non-slip rubber base ensures the mat stays put during the most intense of gaming sessions, and it comes with a carrying case for added mat protection and portability.

Take it from someone who (in anger) bought the Razer Megasoma for $50. Biggest piece of over-rated marketing bull**** ever. You will not notice a difference between this $60 pad and Razer's own $15 Sphex.

Too true! Nevermind reality, nevermind net congestion and ping, nevermind the lint on the optics, nevermind the hangover, nevermind the greasy fingerprints, nevermind the....

Competitive gaming is a game of bottlenecks. You need to have every component that relates to the game not bottleneck your skill so that you are the bottleneck. If your system bottlenecks you, then you're not as good as you could be. Also, a nice mousepad reduces fatigue, and can let you play for longer periods of time.

Same reason why professional athletes buy expensive shoes (and why some do steroids).

On the other hand, wouldn't people rather spend $60 to think they're going to be a better player rather than actually put the effort forth to become better? It's $60, or actual hard work, plus admitting that you suck. And the added benefit is that you get to show off.

If you choose image over truth, your wallet deserves to be raped by the corporations.

You did not make a very compelling case for this product at all. Spend $60, lie to myself and everyone else while supposedly "enhancing" my image (trust me, an expensive pad does not enhance your image at all. It lessens it in fact, especially to anyone with a small amount of common sense.), or be truthful with myself that I may not be as good as I thought, but have $60 extra dollars in my pocket. Not a tough choice to me.

Not trying to convince you to buy it, just giving reasons for people who might. Besides, I wouldn't even own a mousepad if I wasn't at Fry's looking for $40 to spend on money somebody owed me.

Wasn't directing my comments at your purchase. $40 is still too much to me, but it's not $60 like this one.
