The 4/9 HD Steelseries pads are the recommended surfaces for the XAI.
A hard surface pad is best for most lazer mice.
Soft surface pads have a negative effect on acceleration.

Razer I heard makes really nice mousepads, there are two main types I think which is the speed and control edition. Choose whicheverone you think is more comfortable and by whatever criteria is more important. And they come in different sizes. I think the lineup is called Goliath.

I can't really comment on the Razor pad since it's no longer available.It's been replaced by the Vespula which has a goofy gel wrist bar.
I personally use a Steelseries Qck for my Logi MX-518 it's a soft cloth pad and works well for that application.
My other set-up is a Deathadder 3500 with a dual sided Func Industries 1030 pad.
One side is smooth and the other rough i prefer the smooth for my Deathadder.
Keep in mind both my mice are optical i've never used a laser mouse yet.
The 4/9 HD were designed specifically for laser mice.
The only difference is the size = same pad.
From what i've read the 4HD is $20 and works well with your mouse.
We could get really indepth here regarding mouse style/grip,pad size etc.
I personally use pads on the smaller size cuz if they're paired with the proper mouse(once it's tweaked properly) you don't really need a large pad surface area.
Hope this helps somewhat.
