    Gee thanks Bronsky for the words of encouragement - what do they say "truth hurts and absolute truth hurts absolutely?"

    After 2 weeks spent with the GB12 and the Staedler pen (drawing the whole days), I'm completely seduced. I can't put it down.
    The drawing experience is really great. And I find that the screen size is compensated by the fact that I can draw without zooming as much as with my Wacom devices.
    The grip of the pen on the screen is perfect for me.

    I'm now waiting for a powerbank I ordered and everything will be perfect.

    It's the first numerical drawing device I own that gives me such a natural feeling. I don't feel I have to make compromises to make it work.
    I don't miss the button neither the eraser on the pen.

    Keep in mind my main use is drawing and coloring in Clip Studio.
    It's really a drawing tool for me.

    But it's a really cool one !

    I'd like to try the Mobile Studio Pro just to compare. But it will be heavier and less easy to carry everywhere.

    I received my power bank (ravpower 26800). And it works fine.
    Now I can move for long time without access to electricity !

    I have mine as well. To me, feels as good as most S-pens I use.
    I like the shape of the barrel, as it feels more substantial than say the Staedtler.
    I also like how the ink pen tip can retract by twisting the silver tip, as I'm more inclined to use the cap to protect the S-pen nib anyway.

    Some minor gripes:
    I've tried wiping it down, but the plastic still feels slippery, almost oily to the touch.
    The cap only stays on by "press" fit, there is no click or screw mechanism to it.
    The cap is also heavy, or at least it seems like it is about the same weight of the barrel itself. So if you put the cap on while writing, it makes the pen noticeably unbalanced overall.

    Overall, not a bad purchase, it goes into my stable of EMR pens

    The Steadtler is a a good pen, but for me it has one of the same issues as the Apple Pencil - it's so tall it is top heavy when writing...I would assume it is much better in "brush mode."

    Pencils are so long and unweildy because they shorten with use. In my school days I'd grind down fresh pencils by about a third to make them feel comfortable in my hand. I wasn't the only one. I always wondered why Apple, et al, decided to emulate brand new ones. :vbconfused:

    I loved pencils that were in the last third of their lives. Smaller pencils feel great in the hand. From that point, I would keep them until they were just stumps with an eraser.

    You could probably chop off a significant portion of the the top of the Staedtler pen... who wants to volunteer!
