Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been trying to use my iPad at work more and more to eliminate carrying around a legal pad and always wasting paper. The issue I've come into is writing on the iPad has been a challenge. I've tried multiple pen stylus' before and never been happy so when I had the opportunity to review this one I jumped at the opportunity.

Initial impressions using the Bamboo Stylus were bad. I fired up Penultimate and started trying to write. The grip felt good, the stylus is comfortable in your hand but it was STILL like trying to write with a crayola crayon. It just didn't work well. The text was hard to read and it looked like a 4 year old was writing.

I was disappointed and tried a few other apps, the touch sensitivity of the Bamboo stylus is great. It is responsive and much faster then the other brands I've tried but it was still hard to write with.

But then I found NOTE TAKER HD, which is the ultimate app if you want to do hand writing on the iPad and use it like a real legal pad. Note taker HD gives you a large box on part of the screen you write it, which makes it easy as you write big but then the app shrinks the text down and puts it on the page. It's very slick and if you want to use the Bamboo Stylus for writing I highly recommend you pair it with the Note Taker App. After I did that I loved the Bamboo Stylus.

I carry my iPad around currently in a Marware eco-vue case and while there is no pen clip on the case I found the Bamboo stylus slides perfectly on the center fold of the case and will stay when the iPad is closed. So now I have my ipad, my case and a stylus.

In summary:

CON's
-Feels like writing with a crayon in most apps I tried.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to capacitive stylii - but the Wacom brand carries a lot of weight and loyalty, and that has turned this johnny-come-lately stylus into the de-facto choice for many iPad owners and artists.

That's fine, the Bamboo is a great stylus. It works well and feels substantive, solid, and well made. I have only one problem with it - the PenGo Touchpen iPad Stylus is half the price and is virtually identical to the Bamboo in every way. Both have a smallish rubber-bubble tip, are about the same size, length, and style, and both feel and behave exactly the same way in every iPad app I've used (Penultimate, uPad, Sketchbook Pro, Inspire Pro, etc). Also, both have the same "squishy" character when writing or drawing. Still, as far as squishyness is concerned, both the Pengo and Bamboo stylii feel much better than their competitors thanks to their smaller tips.

I will say this - the Bamboo's construction feels more substantive than the Pengo's does, and it LOOKS more professional. For some, that's a critical point, especially when cost is no object. For instance, the Bamboo feels more "solid" where the Pengo feels light and empty. But does that make the Bamboo worth twice the Pengo stylus? Personally, I think not... besides, some may prefer the lighter hand-feel of the Pengo. Ultimately, it's a matter of taste and cost.

You certainly won't be disappointed with the Bamboo - but if you want the same great writing experience at half the cost, you should seriously consider the PenGo Touchpen iPad Stylus too.

The Wacom Bamboo stylus for iPad works rather well. In my experience it draws respectably and feels good in the hand. The Bambou has a soft rubber tip that reacts serviceabily on the iPad screen. A rubber tip stylus works much better than a sponge tipped stylus, like the Pogo. However, Boxwave, Acase, and Targus all make very good rubber tip styli that work nicely , perhaps even better than the Bamboo stylus, and on Amazon they cost anywhere from half to one third the price.

Unfortunately I see no real advantage to the Bambou stylist. The tip isn't smaller then any of the aforementioned styli and if the tip wears out you can't replace it. It's true the Bambou is a bit heftier than the other styluses, but in use, a heavier stylist tends to tire your hand out more and after several hours of drawing or typing this can be most tiresome.

Wacom is a very well-respected name in the tablet industry. They make excellent products. This is a good product at an outrageous price. If Wacom would work to redesign this stylus with a smaller, replaceable and more responsive tip it might justify the price. For the time being, until the price comes down in half, I would recommend going after one of several less expensive and as good alternatives. There's just no advantage to this stylus.

I've had my stylus for less than a week. The weight and feel are great. During the past week I've used the stylus with Bamboo Paper, GoodReader and NoteShelf. The rubber tip is already breaking down (it has split). This would be a great stylus and would otherwise merit five stars, but its lack of durability is a major issue, particularly for a $30 tool.

When I got the Wacom capacitive stylus in the mail I was very excited, but out of the box, it leaves something to be desired. I like to draw, but for fast, precise drawing - the feel of the bamboo was not as responsive as I would want.

The pen itself has an excellent feel in your hand overall. Nice heft. Well balanced, and at least an inch longer than the Boxwave - which means it fits better in a larger hand.
The clip comes off in case you just want a nice sooth cylinder. The clip even can be mounted in the opposite direction to achieve more length.

The drawing end of the stylus is nicely machined, and unscrews to reveal a removable rubber tip. One can use it with the end unscrewed and the tip fully exposed too.

Here's the bad part for me: Out of the box, the tip feels too sticky, and squishy. It gives too much. Initially it felt sluggish compared to the boxwave's responsiveness. So, I took it off, and stuffed it with a tiny bit of sponge (Mr. Clean Magic Eraser), and Voila! The tip is now firmer, and it glides better on the surface of the iPad. I decided that I should order some more rubber nibs. However, it was impossible to find them on the Wacom site -- for some reason they have the nibs hidden? Anyway I called Wacom and the sales rep told me to enter ACK20501 into the search box on the wacom.com site. 3 nibs for 5 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping. I'm going to experiment with stuffing the nibs with different materials to achieve the exact feel I like.

Wacom should produce tips/nibs with varying material densities, and feels. I give the pen 5 stars, but because the mod I had to do to the tip, I give the overall product 4 stars.
