Mousepads are difficult things to review. After all their simple nature usually means that reviewing is simply a case of "put your favourite rodent on it, if it moves, then it's good enough.
That doesn't make for the most interesting read though. Thankfully the two TF series mousepads that Zowie have given us for review hold a phenomenal unique feature that is as exciting as almost anything ever found on a mousepad.
Before we reveal this patent-pending piece of wonderment, let's have a look at the packaging and specifications.
Packaging and Specifications
Both the G-TF and P-TF that we are reviewing today are what are called soft mats. Unlike a lot of hard coated mats this means that they can be rolled up into a very convienient box for shipping.
The packaging itself is very sturdy made from thick cardboard that will ensure your mat arrives in the best of conditions. A small window on the front allows a view of the mat. But the main box is dominated by two things. Firstly is a truly enormous Zowie logo. Nobody will ever be in any doubt who is the manufacturer of these mats. Secondly is the the endorsement by Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed. His face is on the side, his logo is on the front, and it's also one of the only two logos visible on the mats themselves.
As mentioned above, only two things are visible on the TF series mats. Firstly is a embroidered Zowie logo on the top right of the mat, and a screen-printed SpawN logo on the bottom left. Otherwise these are very plain mats and certainly meet my seal of approval. I always prefer a stealth mat to an all-singing huge-logo one.
The mats themselves are available in two sizes. The G-TF is the larger of the two at 440mm x 380mm with 4mm of base to cushion your wrist. The P-TF is identical apart from being 340mm x 290mm big for those with smaller desk spaces.
Let's go over the page and have a closer look at the mat and the pièce de résistance.
