Razer is one of the best gaming peripheral manufacturers out there, and their mousepads are unmatched. They have a large line of them for different types of gamers whether you want speed, control, portability, or a large area. The Vespula is a mix of control and speed and is so well designed. The mat itself is double-sided, one side for speed, and one for control. The side for control is a little more gritty than the reverse side, but they are both a solid gray color so it doesn’t interfere with high-end laser mice. I actually like both and will change the side depending on what mouse I am using.
The pad comes with a rubber mat that has a wrist pad attached to it. This is so ingenious because the wrist pad feels just right. Some gamers scoff at the use of a mouse pad but it keeps your hand steady for players who aren’t waving their arms around like a crazy person. The wrist pad isn’t too soft or too hard, and it isn’t too big. I found it very hard to get this mouse pad to move at all which is a good thing, it will stay put. You also don’t have to use the wrist pad because the mat has four rubber feet that are neon green to make the company’s art style. Yes, the mouse pad does look very cool and has some neat cutouts.
When you open the package you get a thank you card from Razer and two sticker decals like with all their other products. This mouse pad may be a bit pricey for most gamers, but I thought it was well worth it. You’re essentially getting two mouse pads and a wrist pad for one price. I really love this pad and works so well with my Razer Mamba and R.A.T. 9 that I can’t help but recommend this to everyone.
