HyperX Fury S Pro XL Review

Most people seem to initially neglect the importance of getting a good gaming mousepad, and that’s a shame. Much like with mice they come in a variety of different sizes and different textures, so finding the one that’s just right for you can dramatically enhance your gaming experience.

In order to help you with that we’ve been reviewing popular mouse pads, and the HyperX Fury S Pro is another pad in this series. It’s pretty popular among pros and enthusiasts alike so it only makes sense that we let our reviewer take a good look at it.

We’ve reviewed the XL version of this pad, but the HyperX Fury S Pro is available in 4 different sizes. Everything apart from the sizes stays the same between the versions.

Finding a mousepad that suits you and your playstyle can really enhance your overall gaming experience.

HyperX Fury S Pro XL First Impressions

The HyperX Fury S Pro XL is a ‘desk sized’ mouse pad, meaning that it’s large enough to also accommodate your keyboard. Some people like that feeling while others hate it, so it’s really a matter of preference here, but the good thing is that the Fury S Pro also comes in smaller sizes; you can get small, medium and, you guessed it, large.

Straight out of the box (the Fury S Pro comes rolled up in the package) the pad lays flat almost immediately, which is a nice bonus if you’re planning on using it immediately. It also has a nicely textured base which does a perfect job of keeping the pad in place, and that combined with the thicker, weightier aspect of the mousepad makes for a very even and consistent playing surface, even when used on (slightly) uneven surfaces.

The Fury S Pro has stitched edges and is finished with a (rather substantial) HyperX logo on the bottom right corner of the pad. I don’t much care for the looks of it since I’m personally more of a fan of super clean mousepads, but that’s an extremely minor personal point of criticism. The logo (and the pad, by extension) by no means looks gaudy and the logo isn’t raised or embroidered so you won’t notice it at all when passing over it with your mouse.

HyperX Fury S Mousepad Review Thickness


The Fury S Pro, as mentioned before, is a rather thick and heavy pad, which means that it’s going to offer a very consistent and even glide. Thickness is obviously personal preference, but if you’re going to be playing mostly on uneven surfaces you’ll be wanting a thicker pad to cover up any inconsistencies on the playing surface.

It’s very comfortable to play on and it never slipped away on me when playing, which is due to a combination of the great rubber texturing on the underside of the pad and the weight of it. I test these pads for consistency on a variety of surfaces and I always try to make them move in outlandish ways which would frankly never happen in actual gaming circumstances, but the Fury S held tight all throughout.

The Fury S Pro, out of the box, has a very consistent and medium-fast glide. After a while (depending on how much you’re using it, obviously) the glide does start to get a little slower due to the coating or treatment that they put on the pad wearing out. That doesn’t really affect the glide by several orders or magnitude, it just gets a tiny bit slower. The glide stays as smooth and consistent as before; it’s not as if the pad gets that swampy, murky feeling that you tend to experience with lower quality pads, but it’s something that I should mention regardless.

The Fury S Pro does have stitched edges but they don’t seem to be of the highest quality, at least not on my sample. It’s not really a problem and it didn’t interfere with anything at all (the stitching also didn’t bother my wrist or arm) but that could be something they can improve on in the future.

Conclusion & Recommendation

The HyperX Fury S Pro XL does everything right if you’re looking for a consistent pad with a medium (edging on fast) glide. It starts off a tad bit faster, but that initial faster feeling wears off after some time. Still, the glide and performance of the Fury S Pro is very respectable and I would definitely not feel bad if someone shoved this pad underneath my mouse and told me to use it in a competitive environment.

Due to the heavier and thicker feeling of the pad I can also recommend it as a LAN pad; the Fury S lays flat almost immediately out of the box and has a very consistent and comfortable feeling.

Thanks for Reading

    1. Initially it’s faster, but after a while the ‘coating’ starts to wear off and it ends up being a tad slower (almost unnoticeable though) than the Glorious. They’re all medium-fast pads so their speed is very comparable, but in my testing the QcK Heavy felt the fastest out of the three.

    1. I haven’t yet tested the Fnatic Focus 2 but out of those two I’d definitely vouch for the Fury Pro XL; from what I’ve read the Focus 2 is sort of a ‘middle ground’ pad with a slightly rougher-than-usual texture so that might be right up your wheelhouse too.

  1. I definitely noticed the slow down on the fury s. Especially when I flipped it upside down and used the Opisite side haha. Being that I use super low sens I’m prob gonna switch to glorious to have a more slick feel over time while still having control

    1. Yup, it’s kind of a bummer that the initial glide wears off. I can definitely recommend the Glorious pads, I really love the way they feel!

    1. I haven’t yet tried the Speed edition, though I’ve read that it introduces a sort of coating that’s supposed to make the pad faster than the regular one. The regular version is a great pad though so I suspect that the speed version won’t disappoint either.

  2. Hey,

    great review, exactly the info I was looking for. Was considering buying this pad but hearing that it’s about as fast as the Glorious (which didn’t work for me at all) put me off. Have you tested any extended pads that have around the same size as the Fury but have more control? I’m looking for one of those.

    1. Razer’s Goliathus could be called a bit more controlling, and they offer an extended version (albeit with an RGB strip tacked on, not sure if they’re still selling the regular extended version) but it’s not _super_ controlling either. Aside from that the Zowie G-SR offers by far the most control of any pad that I’ve tested, though they don’t offer that one in an extended version. Otherwise maybe something like the Dechanic Control Extended? I can’t personally vouch for that one since I haven’t tested it (yet) but it seems to be all about control as well, so perhaps you could give that one a spin.

  3. Hi sir im trying to decide for a new pad to use with my moded g305 i want to know wich pad is faster at long term use hyperx fury s or logitech g640? What mousepad between this two has more friction? Ive been checking the corsair mm350 and coolermaster mp510 too its nearly impossible to grt glorious zowie or artisan pads where i leave due to shipping and taxes costs

    1. Hi! If it’s between those two I’d go for the G640, it seems a bit faster in the long run in my opinion. Can’t say too much about those other pads since I haven’t tested them yet.

    1. Depends on what you like when it comes to thickness, but I’m more of a QcK kind of guy myself.

  4. Someone try the HyperX fury CLoud9 edition??
    Does he have less control than the G640 and razer gigantus ?

    1. I didn’t try the Cloud 9 Edition, no. The Fury S Pro is a bit more controlling than the G640 in my opinion, and the Gigantus is about the same.

  5. So what you advice me between Razer gigantus and The Hyper X for my mouse logitech g pro wireless ? If they are almost the same. Who has less friction the Razer gigantus or the HyperX ?

    1. I haven’t tested that one yet so I can’t really tell you about the differences unfortunately.

    1. They’re very, very similar. If you really want a control pad I’d consider the Zowie G-SR or G-SR-SE (that’s slightly less controlling) but between those two I’d cautiously say the Fury S Pro.

  6. Ok but i heard that the Fury s pro and the speed version is the opposite.. Others said in reddit that the Speed version was GSR level of slowness and the fury s pro is identically as fast as the QCK : / i know u haven’t got to review the speed version but i hope you’ll review it soon!

    1. Well the S Pro is indeed very similar to the QcK. My apologies for not being of more help on this; I will look into the possibility of reviewing a speed version in the future!
