I've seen this recently: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S23023

Has anybody tried it? Any improvement over the roughing sticks?

I have some on the way, should be arriving in a few days. I'll be happy to post my thoughts.

I did a comparison when the V-Inc roughing stick came out, putting it side by side with the older Robson roughing stick. The V-Inc stick was HIGHLY improved.

Interested to see how the balm compares. I'm hoping that if nothing else, it's just something that's a little easier to carry and apply on the fly due to the size and shape of the container.

Great to know that you'll get and test it! Indeed seems clean to carry and apply, just wondering if it works any good.

Has anyone tried this yet? I am curious if it holds up well.

Anyone have this and can comment pros / cons over Robson's Roughing Stick ?

I got it and tested it out on one deck. It's very similar to the Robson stick (the vanishing inc version, not the older version) in many ways. The container is like a big lip balm, probably about twice as long and twice as wide.

It's convenient that it has a cap and you don't touch the stick itself during application. It makes it a little easier to throw into your pocket or close up case. But in terms of how it works, they're more or less the same from the limited amount I've used it so far.

Thanks for getting back Kevin. Good to know, it probably will be worth getting just for the ease of carrying around (for a quick "on the go" fix / touch up) and the fact that it is encased and not messy helps. I just might need to try it out one of these days.

Better than spray as far as breathing and health Id assume

I'm sure it's pricey for its convenience. I bought some spray from Wal Mart for around $4 when I made my first Invisible Deck.

The roughing stick, at least the Robson one, has some advantages over spray beyond the application. You can treat a single card instead of a pair and still get a roughing effect, also , if you treat a little heavier, you can use it to stick cards together.

Curious if the Neo stuff also has that property?
