Carbon fiber vinyl isn't exactly cooperative with rounded surfaces.

Like trying to wrap a ball with paper and keep it perfectly smooth.

Looks good. If only one of those three pictures was in focus.

I don't think that would work.

Wow that looks pretty neat, does it feel like it was added? Sometimes adding stickers or things like that give it a unnatural feeling...

BTW why do you have two mice plugged in?

Mousepad would work with carbon fibre I have done some research into it as I plan to make one. It does depend what firmware you have mind the old one prefers glossy whilst the 1.1 rev doesn't as much. KustomPCs.co.uk - Logitech G5 Laser Mouse (2007)

1out of 2 isn't bad looks like a death adder from that angle due the dimensions being virtually the same between them.

It doesn't really 'feel' like it was added. And fingernails shouldn't scratch it, though sharp objects could.

I use them both (though not at the same time)

Yeah, but not on the one I'm using. I have considered it before.
It's a sort of flexible rubber mouse pad, and it's got particles designed to reflect the light of LED's/lasers used in mice.
If you want more information, it's a Nova Microptic series mouse pad.

Nova killers are good mousepads I don't really like the look of them but there performance is faultless.
