Review: LYNKtec TruGlide Pro brush / pen styus








Okay, I've used this baby and messed around with it -

finally ready to share some thoughts!

First off, I absolutely love the finger-print like microfiber tip.

Why is it better than rubber?  I have no idea.  But personally it works for me.


Unfortunately, as with all brush tips, it's very difficult to really get a responsive stylus brush.  Probably because the bristles must be very stiff, but not too stiff as to scratch the glass, and flexible enough to respond to pen pressure.

I have no idea if this is an issue for a stylus developer or a drawing-app developer

Another plus besides the great tips is the weight - the pen is really light (yay!) and the clip is super strong - so you shouldn't be dropping this all over the place!


★ ADVICE TO ARTIST PROS 


I really feel, if you are the kind of artist that is ALWAYS using your tablet to make masterpieces, and you own a Wacom tablet or Cintiq or something to do serious artwork in like Photoshop, then a brush tip isn't going to satisfy you.

You're better off just getting the pen and pretending it's a brush tip.

But that's just me - I haven't used a mouse in years so I'm quite picky about things like that.


◇◇◇◇◇ LYNKTec TruGlide stylus ◇◇◇◇◇

◉ The TruGlide is a universal stylus that is compatible with all touchscreen devices such as tablets, smart phones, and eReaders. Its patented conductive microfiber tip is what makes this stylus stand out against its rubber-tipped competitors.  The tightly woven fibers are smoother and more durable than rubber and truly glide across your screen, dramatically improving writing, texting, and drawing. 

◉ $29.95 for pen (+$14.95 for the brush tip)  
BUY IT HERE

I'm showing the BUNDLE here which has all the cool stuff for $39.95 (which you can buy here)


PROS: super light, easy to change tips, love the clip, comes with a suh-weet aluminum case
CONS: depending on what drawing program you are using, the brush may not be as responsive as you'd like, but that isn't really a reflection on this product, more about how the program responds to pen pressure.

Grade: A+
