I bought this pen primarily for note taking on my iPad
As I had not had any previous experience with styli, I spent a lot of time deciding between the Bamboo stylus and the Adonit Jot Pro Stylus in Gun Metal Grey for all touch screens.
. In the end I chose this stylus as it would not be loud and there would also be no chance of damaging the screen.
Initially this pen takes a little getting used too. The tip is made of a thin rubber with an air pocket underneath followed by a metal stub. I found the pen to be reasonably responsive under light pressure although the angle the pen can write at is limited by the metal surrounding the rubber tip. The pen is an all metal construction and is weighted nicely, it is slightly shorter than I expected but not too short to use. The pen had the feel of writing on a whiteboard, and to achieve the most accurate drawing I had to zoom in on the iPad. In some applications writing becomes more difficult as they can lag - but this is an app problem not the pen.
I have used the pen a fair amount for a week so far and have not experienced any issues of the tip cracking/tearing etc. but will update if this becomes the case.
Overall I think this pen is probably one of the best on the market as it has a much narrower rubber tip than the competition but still feels fairly natural when in use. Cost-wise it is a little expensive for what it is but I think long term durability will be the deciding factor as to how good a value this is.
