This has become the primary tool in my sketching kit. It allows me to do
everything I would normally do with ink and brush, but portable and without the
mess. The line variation is excellent and allows for great sloshy, energetic
inking. It works well on smooth and textured paper, but I think I prefer it on
smooth paper, as it allows me to do tiny details without switching tools,
whereas on toothy paper it tends to run a little dry. I know some people find
the tip a little large and unwieldy, but that's a matter of drawing style. If
you're used to working with watercolour or liquid ink, this is actually a fair
bit more forgiving. You don't need an inhumanly feather-light hand to get
hairline marks out of it.
I have been using my brush HEAVILY for the past three months, and the tip is
still pristine. I definitely get more out of the hair brush than I have out of
its felt tip equivalents.
Overall, I highly recommend it!
