Absolutely and I’m completely unapologetic about it. A number of Youtubers and reviewers will NOT sell products that they are reviewing because reviewing is their business. It isn’t my business. My business is finding quality tools and accessories to make my life and the lives of other artists and note takers better.
I have two beautiful, wonderful little girls that I love with all my heart. So I’m proud to be able to sell you a product I fully believe is the best option available especially when it helps support my family. It’s a win win for me and you.
I have years of research and over a decade of using a variety of digital stylus in my personal work, (have 20 plus different stylus next to me as I write this) so I am confident that my opinion is both very informed and educated on digital pens for art and note taking. My review for the Raphael 5 came out last year in September (2019). Version 2 of the stylus and 4 months later I started selling the stylus in January of 2020. The manufacturer is great to work with and have the best support I’ve EVER gotten with a company. Absolutely love them. If you get a defective stylus (rare) they will expedite a new one with express shipping immediately and I’ll be the one you talk with in order to do that.
My plan is to continue to research and find the best options for tablet users and to put my findings here for you. Please subscribe below to be informed of other great finds.
The R520 comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty. They are very responsive and you will work directly with us here. If there is any problems your replacement will be sent out with express delivery.
Line quality varies from program to program. In most programs the R520 matches the default Surface Pen, exceeds quality in other programs and may be slightly worse in others.

The R520 is manufactured in Taiwan, NOT CHINA. It’s settings and manufacturing quality are far superior to the clones I have tested. *note, they are not the same or made in the same country. Warranty and support are also vastly different
The R520 (Renaisser Raphael 520 stylus) is a Windows Ink / Ntrig / Surface Pen alternative stylus. This means that it will work on ALL devices that support the Surface Pen. Please keep in mind that wacom based devices will not work with this stylus. Please check with your manufacturer of your device to see if the Surface Pen will work on it. We do NOT recommend the R520 stylus on devices that don’t support Microsoft’s 2.0 Pen Protocol that includes support for tilt data. That means that devices like the Surface Pro 3 may not work well with the R520 stylus. However, updating the pen drivers may resolve issues
Use the eraser button on the side of the R520 pen to erase or sub material inside of the Zbrush, Blender, Maya and more…
The Renaisser Raphael 520 is our favorite choice because it nails the basics of what you want in a Surface stylus while also being incredibly budget-friendly.…
I’d like to provide my feedback on the Renaisser pen I’ve got for free, as someone who has went through number of devices over the last few years and have lots of experience testing different pen tech.
