It's been a while since I've last seen a metal mousepad but Razer decided to resurrect the idea by introducing the Ironclad, a new high-end gaming mousepad made from anodized aluminium. The Razer Ironclad has a 320mm x 270mm smooth sandblasted surface, it's 2.5mm thick, has a non-slip rubber base to prevent it from moving and the company claims it's compatible with all mice. It's quite expensive though, with a price tag of 59.99EUR it costs about as much as a decent gaming mouse.
Carlsbad, Calif. – October 7, 2010 - Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end
precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today announced the Razer Ironclad elite hard
gaming mouse mat, the only metal mat in Razer’s product range built to enhance and optimize
the gliding capabilities of your mouse for unparalleled mousing comfort and control.
Equipped with a finely sandblasted surface, the Razer Ironclad minimizes hand discomfort
and feels smooth to the touch, allowing for effortless and natural mouse movement over its
sleek top. It features just the right amount of friction to deliver the precise targeting you need
to eradicate all competition with sharpshooting accuracy without abrasive results.
“The Razer Ironclad stands apart from the pack because it delivers the highest form of
comfort and long-lasting performance with its ultra-smooth surface and sturdy metal body,”
said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “We understand the diversity of
gamers out there, from ones who demand a large surface area to those who want superior
tracking precision. We produced the Razer Ironclad to make winning feel easy, and give
every type of gamer the feel, traction and durability that they need to do so.”
Made from anodized aluminium, the Razer Ironclad features a robust unibody construction
for reinforced strength and extreme durability to withstand the test of time in any gaming
environment. Its extra-large surface area caters for low-sensitivity settings and wide sweeping
movements. Gamers can now have a premium combination of both precision and reliability
for those kill-or-be-killed moments in gameplay.
