    This is the solution I came up with. Still works well for me.

    Moxiware for me (magnetic wrap):

    1. Makes the Pencil less slithery.
    2. Sticks to the iPad or the Smart Keyboard (No Pencil left behind).

    Moxiware works perfectly for me too. Sticks really strongly on the right bezel as well as the middle part of the Smart Keyboard. Also a lot easier to write with the pencil with the sleeve on.

    Did you guys cut yours like someone did on the youtube review video for it?

    I feel like the magnet would get in the way of where i want to hold it,

    I use moxiware too. Did not have to cut it it. Just followed the install instructions and it went right on.

    Looks and feels great.

    The magnet doesn't run all the way down the pencil feeling weirdly asymmetrical?

    just trying to judge from the pics, what color did you guys get

    I went to Amazon and bought a bunch of stuff to try out. One of the things I got is a plastic clip, which came in a package of 4 (all different colors). Works well on my current case.

    since you're asking for opinions,

    i don't have an issue with the feel of the pencil, but to each his or her own. You seem to dig it, so that's cool.

    Not a fan of the cover/wrap but I would wager some people would...

    Looks great! It's just a shame how the little notches on the cap aren't enough to do the job properly. It's the same in their demo video.

    My opinion too. Plus I like the glossy white look of the pencil. It goes well with the white bezel of my iPad.

    I am looking for ways to make the Pencil more grippy and looks like 2 solutions are presented here: Moxiware and Slickwraps.

    For those who have use one or the other - does it really add better grip? I.e. Textured, rubbery-feel (like BIC pen), etc. TBH, I don't know what material SlickWrap has but I am curious how that will add the extra grip.

    Classy!

    Yes, it's like night and day. When I first got my pencil and started using it, my hand would start to hurt after a while. Finally I realized it was because I was gripping the pencil very tightly to keep it from slipping out of my hand. The surface is too slippery to hold unless you grip it tightly. Then I got the Moxiware sleeve and that instantly fixed the problem.
    I also added a non-glare screen protector and that changed the feel of the pencil on the glass so that it is almost like writing on paper.

    pretty easy to install, and i suck at this stuff. not 100% perfect (what is, right? -- I'll come to love the flaws that make mine unique by the way I installed it) but the separate stickers line up in terms of pencil aesthetic groove, so I'm happy as heck. lucky the main biggest piece came out alright, i decided last minute to re-align/pull and re-adhere it to close the gap after having using a hair dryer on the seam part :D

    almost wasted a wrap all together, but lucked out. nice added grip too, certainly
