The mouse pad is really good value for money. But I personally think that it's more of a control type than a speed one. I use a Logitech g102 coz it's good value for money mouse and mainly it's light weight. I play a lot of FPS and flicking in game plays a crucial role using this mouse pad was a kind of good experience but I felt sometimes a bit of resistance from the surface. It's not much that you might notice at once but long term usage might make you feel a bit different. Also I tried steelseries speed type mouse pad through a fried and then I was certainly sure that this reddragon one has like a bit of resistance. A casual gamer won't notice until you start flicking your shots on a daily basis.
