Artisan Hien (Black/XL) [FX-Hi-SF-XL-B] FX Soft (Japan Import)
About this deal
Artisan mousepads have 3 different levels of firmness when it comes to each model. They are Mid, Soft, and Extra Soft. These 3 give different feelings when using the mousepad. Some things to consider with this is firmness & speed + stopping power. For example, Xsoft has more cushion which gives more control and stopping power. The mid-mousepad is thinner and harder which improves speed.
The Otsu is slightly slower than the Hien with a smooth texture for the folks that find the Hien texture too much. Kou The Artisan Hien FX is a stitched pad with a hybrid texture. There’s an Artisan logo printed onto the bottom right of the pad. The logo has no texture or performance impact. The point is to use re-peeling double-sided tape. It tape easy to peel off. Paste at the corners of the sole of the mouse pad and the middle of it. Paste the tape cut to about 2 cm in length. It can to prevent shift perfectly.The pad comes with three softness levels, XSOFT being the slowest, SOFT is the midrange and MID with the fastest overall speed. The Raiden pad is the speed demon of the family. This pad is even faster Hien’s mid-speed. For the folks that really want that glass-pad experience. Classic vs FX
What are your options for now then? Well if you are willing you can spend around 100 Euros on getting the mousepad and enjoying your experience. Alternatively, if you are on a tighter budget you can try the Odin Infinity XL which I would consider Hien’s little brother.

Classic Artisan pads don’t have a stitched edge while FX Artisan’s do. I recommend spending the extra money for the FX version to prevent any potential fraying on the mouse pad. The stitching on Artisan pads is excellent and do a great job of staying out of the way. Conclusion Artisan is a mousepad manufacturer from Japan. Their mousepads are known to be the endgame of mousepads. They build their mousepads with high-quality fabrics. The weaves are tight and precise which makes the quality control spectacular.
I think this is the perfect mousepad for gamers that want to get out of the muddy control mouse pad world, but don’t want to go all the way to glass level speed. Consistency Until this point the Artisan Hien mid gaming mousepad has received unending praises, but here is where the narrative changes a bit.The Kou is a medium speed pad with a large X-Y differential, the Y-axis is much faster than the X-axis on this mousepad. Finger tip grippers might like this aspect of the mouse pad, but I think it’s more a niche pad. Raiden Some inexpensive products may slip if not apply a load. hundred yen store products is not recommended because the smell is too tight. The stitching is definitely high quality, all of the stitching sits below the mouse pad surface level so avoid any collisions on the sides of the pad. I have some little fray I think from where they start the stitching, but I don’t expect it to get any worse. Colors
