ModMyMachine Slamepad

SlamepadIntroduction

Mouse mats generally come in one of two flavours: Soft and cuddly, and hard and strong. The Slamepad is definitely in the latter category, as it’s made of German-crafted aluminium. The Slamepad (literal English translation… slam-pad) comes from German outfit ModMyMachine, who are newcomers to the mouse surface scene.

Let’s see how the Slamepad fares in real world tests… the Germans are a hardcore mousing people, so I expect only the best from MMM. Let’s get into it!
