By far and away the best stylus that you can buy.


I am manager by trade, so I am constantly taking notes. I also work in a technical industry, so I am constantly drawing technical diagrams and flowcharts. A while ago, I decided to break free from my shelf full of notebooks and make my iPad my one-stop-shop for all work related notes.

The Good:

The heft and balance of this stylus is second to none. I can say this as I have owned more than 10 different models. Most were cheaper in cost, though a couple were more expensive. A good stylus needs to feel good in your hand. You have to want to use it and not be hindered by it. This is my go-to product for note taking, technical drawing and even fun sketching.

I have countless hours using this stylus and the tip is the same as the day I bought it. Wear on the tip was my biggest complaint with other similar products.

The contour of the tip is perfect. Other stylus tend to have a fatter tip making it impossible to write or draw with any semblance of ease. This stylus fixes that. I am not sure how they decided on the shape for the tip, or chose the materials, but the research behind it is evident.

The Bad:

This stylus is a pricey option when compared to the competition, but the price is not prohibitive if you were to use it every day. The amount of money that I have spent on other, cheaper stylus that are not as useful is far greater than my investment in this product.

Final Words:

Do yourself a favor and buy this product. If you envision a future where you no longer have to lug around notebook after notebook and want to make the digital transition, you will be hard-pressed to find a better product to take you on that journey. Learn from my experience and save yourself a lot of money. Buy this stylus and avoid the competition. You won't be sorry with your investment.

I tried various pressures to get the stylus to work using Sketchbookpro on an IPAD. But most times it did not create a mark until I had move the stylus over 1/2 inch. Sometimes I would move the stylus several inches without any drawing response on the pad. Conversely, when I used my finger to draw, there was an immediate line with no pressure required. So I am returning the stylus and will go to the store to find something that really works.

Not bad, but not good. Within 10 hours of use practicing digital caricature, the silicon tip developed multiple tears.
It still worked, but I'm disappointed in the manufacturing and that no replacement tip was included. Also purchased the Kensington and have not had the same problem with that brand. iFaraday fabric tip stylus is my next trial. Bottom line, good for tapping, not so good for scribbling or drawing.

I have tried other styli and felt they were OK; however, I am absolutely in love with this Bamboo stylus. The larger size is actually and surprisingly far more comfortable than any writing tool I've ever used. The weight of it--believe it or not--makes it even more comfortable as well as manageable. It has a soft light touch and seems to have greatly increased my accuracy when typing. I haven't yet drawn with it, but it does move quite smoothly across the screen. The other stylus I used did not flow across the screen and even though it was quite a bit smaller than the bamboo stylus, it didn't seem to have the same level of accuracy. I also appreciated the different color choices. I like it when various tech tools are coordinated, i.e., my magnetic cover and the stylus are both green. My sister loves orange so I was able to get her exactly what she wanted. Got another friend a light blue one to match her magnetic cover. Obviously it has the added benefit of us being able to tell which stylus is ours! Kudos to the developers of this very well made stylus. Well worth the price. PS you can also get additional tips if and when the tip would wear out. Last comment: the orange is far more muted than I had hoped...minor point though. I highly recommend this product [Bamboo Stylus for iPad orange CS100T by Wacom]

After reading all of the reviews here and on sites like The Verge, it seemed like this was the stylus to get. And to one degree, it is: the weighting is good and solid, but not too much, and the tip is nicely responsive on the screen. I've had a lot of fun drawing things with it (see for examples).

However, I'm really disappointed in the nib (tip). Firstly, it's kind of floppy - meaning that it bends too much when you put a slight amount of lateral pressure on it. Think writing with a pencil where the lead has cracked but is still in the pencil and hasn't yet fallen out. But worse, within just a couple of weeks of non-aggressive use, the nib has developed a small tear across it and I'm afraid that the metal stub underneath is going to poke out and start scratching things.

The worst part is that the replacement nibs are out of stock pretty much everywhere, and are much more expensive here than on the original manufacturer's website.

Going with the 2 star review for now. If the nibs were cheaper and readily available, I'd probably go with 4 stars.
[UPDATE] The nibs are now cheaper and more readily available. I've ended up making this my go-to stylus for all my drawing work on the iPad.
