Beware: Huge disappointment (iPad Air 2, Noteshelf, Notability); Do not buy!
By Amazon Customer
I had such high hopes... :( I used this stylus with an iPad Air 2. I got the stylus from my local Staples. I wanted a nice fine point stylus after using a many rubber-tipped ones that deteriorate after a few months of use. I write out lots of notes on my iPad as a graduate student. I tried this stylus with two well-known apps that allow PDF markups: Notability and Noteshelf.
Hardware-- feels very well-made. perfect balance between light and heavy. looks great. easy to charge.
Notability app-- handwriting looks AWFUL with this thing. I practiced for about twenty minutes to see if it was just a learning curve, but nah, it just doesn't register with Notability very well. It does not need to be connected via Bluetooth to work with Notability/general iPad use, but it does need to be charged. After struggling with it for half an hour, I decide to give it an fair chance, so I BOUGHT NOTESHELF from the app store since it Wacom specifically says Noteshelf supports their fineline pens, including this one (even has a YouTube video on how to pair the pen to the app).
Noteshelf app-- After spending my coins to try to make this thing work, I sync it with the Noteshelf app via Bluetooth (super easy to do). Handwriting was better, but still not consistent. Even with the palm-rejection activated, it would regularly make messy scribbles and lines out of nowhere when writing, or the word you wrote would disappear/turn into a scribble monster. I'm just trying to write out some notes; nothing special; no numbers, no pictures, just words. I didn't even expect my handwriting to look perfect, but what this thing produces is unacceptable. There is a slight downward offset, which wasn't a big deal. Sometimes when you start a letter, it will only put the 'ink' down halfway into the letter. Like, are you trying to mimic a cheap pen here? lol?
Overall, an incredible disappointment. Save yourself time and money and take this thing off your list. The technology for these styluses (based on reviews of similar items) is jut not there yet. I usually don't write reviews, but I don't want this to happen to anyone else. Taking it back tomorrow in exchange for yet another 'nice' rubber-tipped stylus... sigh...

Definitely NOT the Apple Pencil or anything like it...
By M. R. Simmons
I have an iPad Pro 9.7, and I got this as a possible backup for my Apple Pencil. I like to have backups, so in case something happens to my Pencil, I won't have to worry about rushing out to get a replacement right away. The price of this led me to believe that it was a good deal, but still appropriate in quality and function to be used as a replacement without me having to break the bank.
Wacom generally makes good styli, so I was not hesitant to try this. I have to say I am a little disappointed with this. I don't know what I was thinking....the Apple Pencil is second to none when it comes to writing and drawing on the iPad Pro. This does not come close. The build quality is mediocre, and for the price I would expect more. The tip is very small and not precise. I don't like it because it does not come out far from the body of the stylus, and so it is not precise in feel when you are trying to use it. The balance is clunky, and it is just weird to use.
To pair it, you have to first charge it (mine came fully dead) with the tiny micro-USB cable, then you have to go into an app that supports it, pair it within the app, and then you should be able to use it. To activate pairing mode you have to twist it to open it and turn it on, and you may have to press the side button to get it to start flashing the blue (indicator is near the top and easy to miss). It paired with little issue for me, but I think I may be the exception to the rule.
Once it is paired, if the app supports it the little button (that is barely tactile and not satisfying to push, and is weirdly indented) can be programmed to perform a single function (I left mine to undo). The performance of the stylus is bad. It skips and has input lag like crazy. I couldn't stand to use it much because I am used to the Apple Pencil, which is perfect. I did not expect it to be as good as the Apple Pencil, but it could have been better. I could not get this to write well in Goodnotes, and that is my go-to app for notetaking.
The construction is also lacking for the price. I would recommend that if you have an iPad Pro, just get the Apple Pencil and avoid this all together. If you don't have a Pro, get a better stylus. I would recommend the Adonit Jot Touch and Jot Pixel. They are much better than this.

It fall apart in the middle, I have bought 3 Bamboo Fineline 1, and those were not perfect, but ok. The built quality on the Fineline 3 is really low. After a couple of weeks of use, the bottom part was falling apart from the upper part, and broke in two pieces.
