I've been using an old Razer Exactmat with my new RAT7 mouse but I decided it was time to get a new mat.

So I purchased a Razer Goliathus as it was a soft fabric mat and figured it might be nicer to use, however it causes REALLY bad mouse creep when the mouse is not moving and as it is always a downwards creep it makes movig the mouse upwards terrible.

can anyone suggest a new replacement that will work well with this mouse?

Does turning down the DPI remove the creep? (I know it's not exactly a good solution to the problem)

I'm the owner of a Goliathus, the large one with the green splat logo (fragged?) and I don't have mouse creep. In fact it's an amazing mat which I cannot fault.

Edit: Seems I have the speed edition which has smaller weave.

I've always used XTracPads. I used the Ripper XXL and the Pro versions. Never had a problem. My two cents.

I love the Steel Series mats. I'm using a 4HD or whatever it's called at the moment.

Im currently using the Razor Sphex which is about £10 its ultra thin (sheet of paper thick) and sticks to the service so it does not move.

Not sure which version I got I will have to check.

Turning down the dpi makes no difference :( but I also like high dpi settings, except in games like fallout
