    I recently got the Bamboo stylus to use with my new iPad Air. I did a lot of research on it, and, seeing that it's generally held in high regard, pulled the trigger.

    It's a nice, premium-quality product to match with the quality materials used in the iPad. They look good together. The Bamboo has a nice heft to it, and I like that you can remove the clip. It makes a statement and is an object of desire in and of itself. I have yet to explore the full potential of using a stylus, but it tracks well and I can make some really detailed drawings with FiftyThree's Paper app.

    It is quite an expensive object, it must be said, but still cheaper than some super-premium styli on the market that perform maybe only marginally better. The Bamboo does everything you need.

    This is perhaps one of the best pens I have used for the iPad. It feels good in your hand and it is very precise and it glides beautifully across the screen. However, the problem that I find with this pen is the durability of the tip. I don't think that I write hard with this pen or I do something out of the ordinary to make the tip wear out. The issue is compounded by the lack of support from the company as I've been trying to get replacement tips from them for a while now with no success. The tips sell for [$](pack of 3), but nobody seems to carry it. You can find them at triple the price on some web sites, but why pay triple the price when they only should cost $4.95? This is half the cost of a new pen. Unfortunately the pen does not come with replacement tips either and that would be nice. So, if the tip wears out, either you pay triple the price for the tips or buy yourself a new pen all together. I sent an e-mail to the company about four weeks ago on the availability of the tip replacement, and the company has never returned my e-mail (using their built in message system as found on their web site). I wish there was a way to recommend this item with a qualifier, but in all honesty, I can not recommend it due to the lack of support from the company on something that can be resolved so easily ... just make the replacement available!!! I love the pen, but with no tip or a broken tip, it is useless … bottom line!

        Comments about Wacom Bamboo Stylus Pen for the iPad and iPhone4:

        I use the bamboo stylus mostly for my tablet - - sometimes my phone.

        It does work perfectly - - a light touch will activate the touch screen.

        NOWEVER, I expected the stylus to be mainly constructed from bamboo. As far as I can determine, there is no wood, much less bamboo, in it. That is why I purchased it - - for the bamboo.

        So, I have bamboo growing on my property. I made a real bamboo stylus with it. All I had to do was cut the bamboo to length, insert a spike in the hollow of the stem and buy conductive tips to put on the end of the bamboo stem. It works well.

            If you are looking for a stylus to make some random drawings, this one might work for you. If you need something to write and take notes, you will be better of with one with a smaller point head.

                          In the beginning I was a little skeptical about using a stylus with my IOS devices, because of the poor responsivity of all the other ones I have tried.

                          Was very surprised at how natural it is using the Bambook Stylus Pen. A pity that they don't include the pro version of Bambook Paper app with the purchase.

                            I received the Bamboo stylus a few weeks ago, and absolutely love it so far. It writes so much better than other styluses (or styli?).

                            I tried a cheaper stylus first, then upgraded to a Targa stylus that didn't seem much better. I had all but given up on written note-taking in the iPad until I tried the Bamboo.

                            It does seem to work better in some apps than others. I'm using it in the "Paper" app by FiftyThree (which I also recommend) and it works extremely well.

                            I'm still worried about reviews that the nib breaks easily, but have yet to experience any problems.

                              Although I tried other styluses, the Bamboo is so far superior, it is now the only one I use. It responds like an ordinary pen on paper on my iPad. I use it for drawing and painting apps and for handwriting.

                                Perfectly weighted and balanced. Works with both iPad 3 and iPhone 5.

                                  I have now purchased 4 Bamboo Stylus Pens ... I keep giving them away to colleagues and then need to replace them. Works great on the iPad as well as my droid. I like the weight and balance of it.

                                        There are cheaper stylus's out there, but I had read a bunch of reviews and heard good things. Completely happy with this stylus. No regrets.

                                        This is a good stylus from a great brand name in pen and touch technology. The stylus has a nice weight to it, which I find useful, it also doesn't feel cheap. It takes your iPad one or two times using it before you and the iPad get used to the new form of input, but when you do it is an awesome experience. It opens up many different levels of creativity on your iPad.

                                        the stylus feels very comfortable with good weight to size balance. works well with most handwriting apps on iPad. rubber tip does squeak a bit when using on iPad with screen protector installed. the tip does wear more than nylon mesh type tips
