Razer Meets Heavy Metal On Ironclad Mouse Mat

Razer Meets Heavy Metal On Ironclad Mouse Mat

It never fails. You think you've spent your last dollar on gaming PC accessories, and then Razer rolls out something else that you just can't resist. The company's newest product is one that you could definitely live without, but the question remains: do you want to? The new Ironclad mouse mat is one of the sleekest, wildest mats we have seen, and it has the price to prove its uniqueness.


This is the only metal mat (anodized aluminium) in the company's product line, and it's equipped with a finely sandblasted surface in order to minimize hand discomfort. Because it's metal, it feels smooth to the touch and allows for effortless and natural mouse movements. Razer even bundles a carrying case for keeping it scuff-free when traveling between LAN parties, and it's quite large: 320 mm (length) x 270mm (width) x 2.5mm (height).

As for the price we were talking about? It will sell for $59.99 and ship to the U.S. in October, worldwide in November.

Yeah $60 is a bit pricey. I use Ratpadz XT that I got a few years back for $25 still looks and feels new. I do recommend a nice mousepad because it will improve your aim, but not $60 worth I don't think.

I think the deal is that it's so smooth that there is a very small amount of friction.  Same goes for the RatPadz, I remember researching them and they claimed the pad and the mouse don't wear out that quickly.
