    Hello,

    Ive just recently bought a G5 mouse,and i have an icemat.ive loved this mat and have used it for years.BUT even after the firmware update for the mouse it still dosent register very well.So im wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of a hard mousemat similar to an icemat which is compatible with the G5 Laser mouse.

    Ive heard the Ulti-Mat is really good for the G5 but i cant find any UK suppliers of this mat.
    Thanks for any replys.

    I got the s&s steel mouse mat. With the supplied pads put on my G5 there's a nice smooth movement and the surface picks up the laser accurately.

    mouse mats are personal preference tbh. Try some out at a shop and see how you like the feel of them.

    optical meeces dont like glassy surfaces afaik. get something with a bit of texture to it, currently using the steelpad bundled with my mx510 and its nice and big with awesome tracking. maybe buy the bundle and have a nice spare mouse too :D
