Hi I have the R.A.T.7 mouse and I was wondering if a mouse pad is really needed for it?

No, mousepads are hold overs from the days where mouses had a trackball that needed a good surface to be turned. With current laser mice, they work on almost any surface regardless of grippyness. People that use them now use them to get a more slippery or consistent surface for gaming so their mouse doesn't catch or have as much friction.

its a lot noisier dragging the mouse over your desk as well.

It also depends on the surface you use it on currently. If your not having issues you probably don't need one.
