This stylus, however, is not the best option if you are in to sketching or drawing. It's ok for quick figures and graphs but anything more involved and you'll find that the constant pushing down of the tip to register the touch becomes tiring.
To sum it up, its best suited for note taking but average for drawing.
I've written full page notes with this and it's like using a felt tip marker on paper, so smooth and easy to handle. It just glides over the glass on my new Ipad. I find any excuse to use it just because I really like using it, I know that sounds weird but it's true. I'm a 21 year old college girl who will use this mainly for writing notes in class but I draw for fun and the Cosmonaut is great for both. Also, I think the durability is awesome enough to be able to give to children, I really can't picture this thing falling apart at all. Watch the "How it's made" video that was on "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood", it's on the Cosmonaut website. If it's good enough for mr. Roger then it's definitely good enough for me.
Best of all, they're MADE IN AMERICA.
In case you're shopping for a notes app, I use notability with this stylus and really like it.
***edited after a month of use***
The customer that gave a four star review must be using a sub par drawing app. At first I didn't comment on intensive use for drawing with the stylus because I hadn't really drawn anything incredibly detailed but now I have. I use sketchbook and I've been able to draw awesomely well with the Cosmonaut. I wish Amazon allowed for photo attachments so that I could show a drawing that I have finally completed after an entire day of drawing with the Cosmonaut.
The Cosmonaut isn't based on some fancy, next gen capacitative technology; and that's a good thing. Its lack of features is actually its best feature. There's nothing to replace, no electronic pressure sensing to glitch out or distract you, just pure, stylus functionality. It's all about the writing, swiping, and tapping and really, that's all that matters. Furthermore, its simplicity also makes it durable. Take tough aluminum and wrap it in even tougher rubber. This thing is built to last. Other rubber and mesh tipped styluses I bought started cracking or otherwise failing after about a month of hard use, this stylus just refuses to quit.
I used the Cosmonaut for an entire quarter of college, which involved nightly math homework assignments, daily note taking, annotating more PDFs than I care to recall, and a whole lot of just screwing about on a tablet. I used it to write sentences and equations,to draw graphs and diagrams, and also to just navigate around the tablet interface. It excelled at all tasks. There is little to no friction with the screen surface (unlike cheaper rubber styluses) and even better, its stiffer tip makes it a lot more predictable and easy to control. Other rubber tipped styluses, even expensive ones like the Wacom Bamboo, simply compress too much when they're being used. This makes it somewhat difficult to figure out exactly where the line will show up. This is not a problem with the Cosmonaut.Read more ›
In use the stylus has, as mentioned, the requirement of an initial downward pressure...I had thought this, before purchase, inconsequential, but in use it very quickly became very irritating. Like all the rubber tipped styli I have owned (and at this point there have been many) the ease of movement against the screen decreased rapidly to the point that, within a month, I felt I was having to pull way too hard to move it across the screen - almost as if I were trying to work on a very dirty screen. I also quickly found that the amazingly comfortable size of the stylus made it difficult to see the tip if I were trying to accurately place any mark or line.
If comfort were the only measure of the usefulness of this product this would easily be my first choice --- since function is probably more important than style I cannot recommend this stylus.

I have been meaning to ammend this review for a bit now but somehow that intention never made it to this review. Let me begin by saying that every positive thing I mentioned about this product still, obviously, applies. Based on this original review I was contacted by the OWNERS and they immediately sent two replacement tips.Read more ›
