I draw on an iPad Air 2 and repeatedly try different styli, with mixed success. None are really great, but Pencil by 53 is consistently the best performer, far less flakey than either the Adonit Jot Touch with Pixel Point or the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus Two.
Each stylus works better with some apps than with others, but across the board, the Pencil performs best. The Pencil's broad, rubber point, which makes more difficult to see fine lines, offsets this disadvantage by allowing a far better feel on the surface of the iPad. The hard points of the Intuos and Adonit styli feel like trying to draw on ice of very slick glass (and the latter, of course, is exactly what you ARE trying to draw upon.)
All the styli that I have used on the Air 2 suffer from often not immediately starting to draw at the point where you first touch the screen. They also all sometimes temporarily skip when drawing lines. In short, all are cranky and harder to use than a pencil or pen on...

The other reason I love this pencil is because my father was a carpenter and used the pencil this is modeled after. He is passed on, but working with this pencil brings back warm memories of him as he used his pencil with his work. I cannot recall a day he was not holding one in his hand, or tucked behind his ear. Now, I use one for my art. I am not a professional...
