Everglide Ricochet


We last saw a product from Webber4Technologies earlier this year and like this one, it was a mouse pad. For most people a mouse pad isn't too exciting and that is understandable. With the release of the optical mouse, mouse pads were almost about to become an antique. Enthusiast mouse pads...yes, there is a small group of people who rely on a mouse pad more then ever. Until only recently if someone asked for a recommendation on a mouse pad I couldn't help but say "fUnc Pad". There was nothing better in the mouse pad market then the fUnc pad and all for good reason. It had everything the Ratpad and Everglide had, and more. This did come at a cost unfortunately and naturally many were not willing to spend $30 US for just a mouse pad.



The Ricochet is the latest in mouse pads to hit the market and we knew that it wouldn't take Everglide long to come out with something to compete with the fUnc pad. Everglide have turned around and created a mouse pad bigger, smoother and nicer to use. Just like the fUnc pad, the Ricochet has two sides - an ultra smooth side and slightly rougher side.



The overall build of this mouse pad is excellent and we didn't think there was going to be a mouse pad that could beat the fUnc pad any time soon. The Ricochet has everything going for it and for this reason we give the Ricochet our Editor's Choice award. We can recommend this mouse pad to anyone who is willing to spend the extra dollars.
