Zowie P-TF Rough mousepad review

In this review I'm taking a quick look at the Zowie P-TF Rough, this mousepad is similar to the G-TF Rough that I tested a couple of months ago, the only difference is the size. The P-TF Rough measures 320mm x 250mm x 2mm, which is more in line with the size of most mousepads.

The P-TF Rough is a cloth mousepad with a heavily textured surface. It arrives curled up in a cardboard box.

  • As fast as TF speed - rougher texture for different glide
  • Very close to plastic pad texture
  • Triple-stitched edges prevents fray and increases the lifetime of the pad
  • Rolled edges for increased comfort while playing
  • 100% compatible with all types of mice
  • Uncurling the mousepad takes some time, I recommend you lay some heavy books on it to speed up the process. Just like the G-TF Rough, this mousepad gives off a weird chemical/rubber smell that dissipates over time.

    The rear is made from a glossy, rubberish material to prevent the mousepad from slipping on your desk.

    The P-TF Rough is 2mm thick and features triple-stitched, rolled edges without rounded corners.

    The P-TF Rough surface is similar to the G-TF that I tested a couple of months ago. The rough surface feels very slick and provides great control to make very precise and smooth movements. The build quality is pretty good but the mousepad is not water resistant, liquids get absorbed by the P-TF's surface.

    Zowie's P-TF Rough is a great choice for fans of cloth mousepads, the rough surface provides great tracking and the build quality of this mousepad is really good. The Zowie P-TF Rough can be found online for under 20EUR.

    The Good Stuff
    - High build quality
    - Good gaming performance, very precise
    - Sticks to your desk

    The Bad Stuff
    - Weird smell
    - Needs some time to uncurl
    - Surface absorbs liquids

    DV Hardware awards the Zowie P-TF Rough with a 8/10.
