Just Plain Mean

I have a question for you Kyle. I currently own the original Ratpadz as well as about 5 Ratpadz GS.
This Ratpadz XT looks like the original Ratpadz. Can you clarify whether or not it is, and if not, what improvements were made to it? Guaranteed, I would still be using the original Ratpadz if it didn't have this flaw: WARPING. The pad would warp and become curved up the middle. It's still like that to this day, and that type of warping rendered it unusable.
Can you confirm that the Ratpadz XT fixes this warping issue?
The pad will warp over time depending what temperature and stress it is exposed to. This is easily fixed.
I have two here in my office that I use, 4 or 5 years old. One that sits under a hot monitor will warp over time, but is easily bent back into shape. This is simply the nature of the plastic, but this also heavily lends to the durability of Ratpadz XT.
I like mine with a little bend to it as it seems to plant the feet more firmly when I game.
Also if you pad is sliding around, it is likely time that you clean the dust off the feet and your desk.
