ZOWIE GEAR G-TF Mousepad - Testing and Final Thoughts

Testing and Final Thoughts


One of the cool things I noticed when using the mouse pad is the way it conforms to the topology that it is laid upon. This is nice when on something like the armrest of an easy chair instead of a flat board that gets top heavy very easily.

While gaming or surfing the web, the mouse felt responsive at all times. Also, the mousepad had a very soft feel on the heel of the hand. While the G-TF is liquid proof, definitely be careful when eating near the mouse pad, since I am a little anal and like my tracking surfaces clean I found it difficult to get some of the crumbs out of the cloth.


The very large surface area is definitely a boon in certain situations. Although I am a very conservative gamer – someone who makes small movements with the mouse, others often enjoy a very wide surface area in which to move the mouse in dramatic sweeps as if to help improve their game play.

Since I have a few different computers that I work on regularly I had the chance to try many mice on the mouse pad. Every single mouse that I tried worked flawlessly, now normally I wouldn't have to say anything about it, its cloth right? Everything works on cloth. But I got a little paranoid when the SteelSeries glass mouse pad didn't exactly work out perfectly for me.

If you are looking for a new mouse pad, definately throw this one into the ring of consideration. It offers durability, meaning no edge tearing, and no little threads strangling off the edges. Also, liquid resistant material is an added boon to extending its lifetime. With a rubber “grip” bottom of the G-TF, it is more difficult to move the pad easily when gaming in the groove. The large surface area may be an annoyance to some but in that case you should be looking elsewhere already. Crumbs and other microscopic particles get caught in between fibers very easily so watch out when eating. However with a $29.99 price tag it packs a pretty good deal in a box.


  • Large surface area
  • Comfy
  • Durable


  • Not as easy to clean as they say



I'd like to thank ZOWIE GEAR for sending the G-TF over and making me a beliver in the cloth.  If you have any questions or comments, please post them in the forum at the "Comments" link below.
