Why are new generation Wacom EMR pens so delicate?

    Killed a second pen (my Staedtler Noris Digital Stylus) today, dropping it less than 3 feet onto a wooden floor --- previously I managed to kill my HP Zbook X2 stylus dropping it the same distance.

    I can't recall having broken an EMR stylus ever before --- anyone else having similar issues?

    Is anyone aware of a new generation EMR stylus which is symmetrical in shape and markedly more durable?

    I have seen so many co workers break even the regular Cintiq 22HD pens this way too, It seems silly that such a small drop could wreck em so easy.

    Sad to hear that, but glad it's not just me.

    Found a replacement Staedtler Noris Digital Stylus --- the Chromebook unit on Amazon seems the lowest priced.
