Recognition position in Ugee is very accurate, there is no noticeable delay. The force of pressing is also recognized quite accurately.

Unlike Wacom feathers, the tip of the Ugee pen is spring-loaded and presses into the body when pressed. The stroke is approximately 2-3 mm.

It is based on this indicator and the force of pressing is read, which makes it difficult to fine-tune the sensitivity.

In Wacom feathers, the force of pressing depends on the pressure on the tip of the pen and the sensitivity can be adjusted very flexible: with the minimal sensitivity, it is necessary to press very hard on the pen.

Here, even with a moderate force of pressing, the tip completely goes to its extreme position.

Nevertheless, if in the settings of the Ugee driver the sensitivity value is left in the middle, then working with the device is very comfortable, the strokes are uniform.
