    Been using the Paper app by Fifty Three for a while now, and was hoping I could get one of these:

    Shop Pencil | FiftyThree

    Anyone know how or where we can source these locally?

    I ordered mine directly from Fifty Three's online store last Dec. 5 (shipping via JAC). It has not yet been shipped until now. Production yield rates must be quite low.

    Not yet shipped? I was already contemplating on getting one directly through Fifty Three but now I'm having second thoughts given their long wait times...

    Saw a couple off ebay but prefer to source it locally...

    looks interesting! maybe BTB will offer this sometime in 2014?

    for the TS, have you tried using jot? it also works great with paper.

    I gave up on Adonit products after my Jot Pro scratched my screen protector. Its very precise and sleek, such a shame it tends to scratch the screen protector. Ive tried low quality to high end screen protectors- they all got scratched.

    How was it? Is the palm protection effective? This is the main reason why I'm still staying away from styluses. Writing doesn't feel natural cause I can't rest my palm on the screen.
