Default Mouse mat

Going to pick up a Steelseries mouse mat tomorrow and need to decide between a cloth and plastic one intended to use it with an optical mouse.
I run on a cheap plastic one right now and it works descent, but I never used one intended for pro gaming.
Which one should I go for.

Steelseries QCB mini which is cloth or Steelseries 3HD (plastic)?

personal preference, but i like low friction pads so i'd pick the plastic one. if i find it too slippery (as if), my mouse allows me to add more weight to it.

If your used to plastic already I'd go with the plastic as your used to it already.

I use a razor exactmat its made of aluminum it was hard to get used to after using foam mats for years but now I couldn't use foam again.

O and just because it says "gaming" on it don't mean it will be better tbh.

I'd say probably go with the plastic one. I hate cloth mouse pads, they feel strange.
But what you SHOULD do, is touch them both, and then decide which one you want to use.

I use an eXactMat Duo Precision, and that one has anodized aluminium so I'm probably sticking to this type for a long time. I really like it.
It starts off with a slightly coarse coating on the surface, but I've long since worn that down, now it's just the aluminium left. xD

i'd say dont listen since its personal preference

i cant stand plastic since the mouse moves too fast with them teflon plates on the bottom, so depends what you like if you like your mouse to have more friction go for a mat if you like less friction go for plastic
also there are different kinds of mats, some that offer more friction some that offer less.

My desk is made of glass, not fun using a lazer mouse without a pad . Pretty much the mouse will slide faster on the glass than the cursor on the screen so I need quite a bit of friction on the pad to keep the same speeds. Been using a cheap plastic one I got with a magazine years ago, ive also used books for mouse pads in the past.

I use a 12 year old worn out piece of wood that used to be called a computer desk.

Works just fine apart from times when I hit a dirt spot and the mouses spazzes out.
