We continue the serious with LYNKTec flagship stylus the TruGlide Pro Precision Stylus. They added something new to the mix with their flagship stylus which is an interchangeable brush attachment. That is set to go on sale Thursday afternoon. I’m really excited about writing this blog post because I’m one of the first bloggers to get to test the brush tip and write about it. Toward the end of the blog post I’m going to give you all price info and the items will be linked to LYNKtex’s website.
When it comes to precision and conductivity to your iPad screen with a TruGlide, this microfiber tip wins hands down. You will get that durable microfiber tip that last longer than a rubber tip and can take a beating on some serious note taking, fast sketches and thumbnails. It glides naturally like melted butter on a hot plate. This is the smoothest stylus I even used so far, nothing really comes close to this. Even on a dirty screen this stylus will still write those lines without any skips. If you want to know how dirty the screen was, then you know my niece was playing with my iPad. But I do not recommend or condone to using a dirty iPad screen, I still feel it’s important to have a really clean screen if you’re going to do some heavy art activity and editing on your iPad. The app I used for the line test was Tayasui Sketches, because they have more fine line drawing options than Paper. I feel Paper is the least accurate app to test a stylus on because it doesn’t have any options to change the lines width on the tools you pay for, like other drawing apps.
The stylus itself is really light in your hand with the microfiber tip and it looks like a professional business stylus to boot. Most of the stylus has really light weight metal with a plastic microfiber attachment tip. The stylus comes in two colours, Matte Black and Slate Silver. Now let’s talk about the brush tip attachment that is coming out Thursday afternoon.
Here I am holding the stylus with the brush attachment, it looks really nice and sleek. It feels really solid in your hand and the brush tip is a little heavier than the microfiber tip. Which I like because it makes a better contact on your iPad screen. Another nice thing about this brush tip is that it’s replaceable if you were to loose it or stopped working on you iPad or tablet, which is better than buying a brand whole brush stylus.
Here’s a sample art work I did with the TruGlide Pro with brush tip.
I did do a Paper test for people who love using that app. I still recommend you try other apps for your test. The curvy lines match up to the tools I was using with Paper.
This test was done with Tayasui Skecthes, I wrote out what the curvy lines are at the end so you have an idea of how the brush looks. You can see how conductive the brush works on this app, but I also tried it on a bunch of other apps. For you Procreate lovers out there, this brush responds really well on the screen. I did noticed when your iPad starts to get hot from a lot of drawing and processing. The response will slow down and will do a catch up to where you ended the drawing.
List of apps I’ve tested this brush on:
My Sketch Paper
Bamboo Paper for Android
FlowPaper for Android
Scribblify for Android
Meritum Paint Pro
This is a list just to get you started, I know there are a lot more art and drawing apps out there.
I did a simple sketch with Tayasui with the TruGlide Pro Brush. It came out really nice. I didn’t have any problems painting with the brush and everything just came out smooth. The water color you will have to go over a few times because it’s light.
