I didn’t say it couldn’t be a factor in deciding the tablet you use, only that it should not be the sole factor in deciding (and probably not the main factor, either). The main bad thing about the gaomon is it has a battery pen, making it heavier than most other pens (and some high-ranked players like Rafis and i think Kynan(?) have said they choose to use their wacom over the gaomon s56k because of this). Even if you have less lag, you can physically reach the notes faster with a better pen (which is why i don’t use my intuos5 over my ctl480 or 470), potentially negating the lag benefit of the s56k, not to mention that the s56k does not allow you to select specific coordinates in its driver software (afaik, it didnt used to anyways).

If you have ~~$50~~ $33 extra? Sure, buy it, and if you’re fine with the pen, stick with it. But the pen is one of the most important things on the tablet. I don’t think it’s as safe of a buy as a ctl471 though, and there are so many more good players using the ctl471 than the s56k (+470 if its just a ctl470 with improved hover distance like i think it is, but im not sure here) and no top player that i’m aware of choosing the s56k over their wacom even if they’ve been able to try one.

Also the polling rate of the s56k is 3* the 471’s, not 4, assuming it reports at 400hz. However the amazon store page says it only reports at 200hz.
