There’s no point on putting down the money for some (expensive) gaming-grade mice like the ones we test here if you’re gonna use it on some cheap mousepad. Those peripherals are great, but they truly excell when sliding over a gaming-grade mousepad that offers optimal tracking conditions. We received two models with the same goal of improving the performance of gaming mice but with different approaches to it: one is flexible and made from a cloth weave surface (the Themaltake Dasher) and the other one is rigid with a silver-metallic plastic coating (Mionix Propus 380). We made an ensemble test which you are gonna read after we describe each mousepad separately.
The Dasher is the biggest of both mousepads with an overall area of 15.8 x 12.6 inches (400 x 320 mm) and 0.2 inch (4 mm) thick. The rubber base allows for a firm grip over the table and the surface is made of cloth weave. Notice the stylish design with the rounded left upper corner. The mousepad comes rolled up and fastened with a Velcro strap with the Thermaltake logo and the package also includes a carrying bag made of cloth.
The Propus 380 has a smaller area of 15 x 10.2 inches (380 x 260 mm) with the same 0.2 inch (4 mm) thick. It’s a sandwich composed of a rubber base, a greenish PVC layer and a rigid silver-metallic plastic surface.
