Hardware Review: Pogo Sketch Pro
Includes: Pogo Sketch Pro, Two heads, Carrying Case
TenOneDesigns line of Apple products was my initial product test, starting off with the original Pogo Sketch which was two inches shorter and used a hard sponge. At the time it was a winner in my book with the tip that seemed to connect with the screen at every angle. On top of that it was quite thin which made it feel incredibly precise. I found it to be too short and the tips kept wearing out which forced me to buy them continuously. Thankfully they were some of the cheaper styli on the market.
The honeymoon was quickly over however. The reason I hate this stylus so much is one problem, the head doesn't last for an extremely long time. It's made of a soft plastic with several holes to make the tip flatten to the screen from many angles. After one weekend, it started to tear once. Then twice. Then two more times. Performance suffered and I had to switch to the replaceable head (it screws off which is easy and sturdy.) This time, I tried to go a little easier on it, tried not to be so rough and be gentle, a minor set back, right?
As I said, I LOVE this stylus but wish it was a little more durable. Perhaps I'll have to look into Pogo Connect to see if their top of the line can fill the void.
