What customers say about "Key Specs"
FiftyThree Digital Stylus Pencil for iPad, iPad Pro, and iPhone - Graphite
  • I've had it for 1 1/2 months now, very little wear on the tip, use an iPad Air 1, no cover on glass, and I've been using Adobe Sketch.
  • The pen tip is a bit thicker than a pen tip we are used to but is easier to write with than stylus pens that have a rounded tip.
  • The tip has a natural feeling drag, it's pretty accurate, and pressure/side works great. I can write naturally and legibly.
  • The rubber tip has too much drag over the screens with a film protetion making normal hand writing difficult.
  • Tip should be more wear resistant (any improvement here would be very welcome).
Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
  • The pressure sensitive tip gives you the feeling of working with a real pen or pencil. I would recommend this to anyone with an ipad pro that's doing any kind of drawing.
  • The pressure sensitive tip is holding up to my heavy handedness quite well.
  • It is pressure sensitive and accurate, and has been successfully charging.
  • Also the noise the tip makes on the surface is quite noticeable; I was in a quiet room and got people giving me the look.
  • The tip is not smooth- has a plastic seam or defect. when using on iPad screen, causes light scratches.

What customers say about "Features"
FiftyThree Digital Stylus Pencil for iPad, iPad Pro, and iPhone - Graphite
  • Sync's effortlessly, the eraser tip is quick and very user intuitive. Great gift for someone thats getting into drawing or is already a pro.
  • Love the pen tip and the rubberized eraser. This device was easy to charge.
  • I do love how it feels in my hand and the weight it gives to itself. Recommended.
  • I bought this product with the intent to take notes with it during class. I was especially excited for the erasing feature.
  • Does not come with a protect case. And with such a sensitive tip it definitely needs one.
Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
  • The pencil is easy to use, you just have to clip it on to the iPad's magnetic strip for the pencil, and it automatically syncs to the iPad so you can use it.
  • I use the pencil for drawing in several apps like Clip Studio Paint, ProCreate, and Concepts. Effective and adjustable.
  • This pencil brought a few welcome upgrades, namely the double tap feature on the pencil to switch to eraser.
  • I like it's that it's charging via magnetic attachment to the iPad.
  • There is no tip cover for this model, which is frustrating since you can easily break the tip.
