    Hi Ken, I disagree my experience with rubber nib pens are that it is fantastic and great to write for a couple of months but once the rubber wears out or looses it integrity it would be difficult to continue to use, unless the rubber nib can be replaceable.

    Perhaps we can ask the inventor himself what’s his plan to counter this 🙂

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you for your good question. Yes, things wear out but there is always a way to minimize it.

    The reason that these rubber tip typically wears out fast and the writing is not smooth as a real pen is caused by the same factor. At first, the coating on the tip is not nicely applied. The higher the tip to surface friction is, the harder you writing, and the harder you writing the coating wear off even faster. It is a total vicious circle. So the key for a long lasting capacitive touch pen is, a good “smooth” conductive tip.

    Too bad that I can’t sent you a sample to try on now, but I can tell you that ALL the people, that have tried the XStylus Touch on their hand can tell the different and benefit of using it within 10 strokes.

Let me know what you think...
