    Help finding a Ratpadz GS please...

    I'm struggling to find the ratpadz GS in the UK. I'm in need of it before Friday 10th Oct.

    So does anyone know where I can get one?

    http://www.ratpadz.com

    Any help would be great

    Buy a Black Ice mat instead. The glass surface is perfect for use with my Razor Boomslang 2100.

    Well, for my Boomslang I wouldn't use anything else. It's big enough, stickes to the desk, and the glass surface really helps the rollerball. Far more precise than any optical mouse, and far more precise than any other combination I've tested.

    Gameplay.com sell them for a decent price, and you can get the Boomslang and Icemat together and save a tenner.

    That's an expensive option, but as I said, I've not found a more precise combo on the market, opticals and ratzpads included.

    Well, I'd still go for a Black Ice mat, even if a Ratzpad is a tenner. You get what you pay for.

    And yes, ball mice can't be used in bed.

    Well, the Black Icemat is an 'updated design', and is said to work better with optical mice, as well as just looking a lot better.

    From a review: "I used the ICEMAT in CS. It dramatically improved my accuracy and mouse sensitivity, even though the game's mouse settings are set to high. So I would say this a great product to add some style to your desk and also as an important hardcore gamers choice."

    That's about 100% correct, I'd say. Best mat around, by far, for the pro gamer, with a proper ball mouse (Boomslang or something), and accuracy goes through the roof... just don't drop it.

    As for the price, I haven't seen them for less than £24-25, although maybe if you search on Google, you can get a few quid off.

    Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

    Well, I'd still go with the Black Ice Mat in a heart beat. Its up to you.

    If cash is an issue, and you don't fancy laying out £25, then sure, get the Alienware one.

    I've tried them all, and I know which is best for me, but the best is also the most expensive.
