XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad Review

Omning here to drop tell you a not so little secret.  This is a secret I’ve kept for many years… haven’t told many people.  f1ss1on just found out about it, even.  I have a huge… mouse pad.  Gargantuan.  People swoon when they see it.  The XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad.

Anyway, with the innuendo out of the way I’d like to talk a little bit about this Monster.   I have to say I came across the XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad completely by accident.  I was an avid user of fUnc Industries mouse pads for years, and thoroughly enjoyed them (one still adorns my wife’s desk) but as chance would have it, I needed a mouse pad for my 9-5 job.  The desk I had a surface that wasn’t compatible with my Logitech mouse, and the provided sheets of paper and crappy mouse rags provided weren’t much better.  I found the XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad completely by chance on NewEgg.com, and thought to myself “That’s completely ridiculous.  It’s a pad for the entire desk!.. wait, that sounds comfortable” and out came the credit card.

When it came and I put it on my desk, people were shocked, afraid, didn’t know what to think. Girls screamed.  I used it at that job for a long time, had my monitor on it, laptop on a stand, external keyboard and more mousing surface then I could possibly need.  At some point I moved to another position, and another desk, that no longer comfortably held my massive pad, so it came home.  It’s been my not so little secret ever since.

So, let’s attack each of those features!

 

Whisper quiet cloth surface: I can not hear the mouse moving, so, good? I think.  I know some hard plastic (fUnc, RatPadz, etc) have a “scratching” sound to them sometimes.  There’s the added benefit of it slightly absorbing some of the sound from my mechanical keyboard as well, though it’s possible that it’s all in my head.

Frey resistant edges:  I’ve used mine every day for a while now and it’s only just barely fraying just a little bit.

XTRACPAds Ripper XXL - Fraying, barely any after a a rough life and plenty of use.

Soft and comfortable: Seriously excels here.  MY ENTIRE WORKSPACE IS PADDED.

Sure Grip rubber backing: It doesn’t move.  Even without the 27” monitor, keyboard, my sausage hands and mouse on it, it won’t move when you try to.  You have to lift it to move it.

Extra heavy duty: I have a 27” monitor on it.  I just moved the monitor and aside from some crumbs, there are no dents or anything under it.  The XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad stands up to the work.

 

There aren’t a whole of benchmarks that can be run for a mousepad.  All I can really tell you is that it’s huge, size matters, and my G700 loves it.   I went XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL and can’t go back.
