Stylus that lasts,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TruGlide Stylus with Microfiber Tip for new iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 5, iPhone 4, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tablet and Smartphone, Nook, all Touch Screen Tablets (Executive Black and Gold with Clip) (Personal Computers)
Ive used a number of different brands of styli over the last two years, and until the TruGlide I always liked the rubber tipped styli best. The problem is that I take a LOT of notes, and most brands would only last me 45 to 60 days before the tip starts to get loose or the rubber starts to melt onto my iPad. As a result, ive gotten into the habit of buying 2 or 3 styli at a time. The TruGlide has been different - after 90 days I'm still on the first of the 3 I bought, and it's showing no signs of wear. It still writes smoothly and doesn't leave any residue on my iPad glass. I highly recommend this product.
Update 8/17: all the paint has peeled off the shaft of the stylus, but last night was the first time I started to notice wear on the tip. The peeling paintwas a small annoyance, but I've been more than willing to put up with it because it writes so well. By my count, that means this one lasted 4 months, and because it works so well I have used it more heavily than the old rubber tipped styli. The end of this stylus is finally in sight, but I'm guessing it will be 300% the life of a typical stylus before this one goes in the trash.

Is this a fine- or thin-tipped stylus? I need a precise point that glides, mesh or knit, NOT rubber. I prefer a LONG stylus. But tip precision is more important than long-length hand "rest."
