I'm for anything that takes up less space.They seem to be shorter in length but basically serve the same purpose as the ones that come in the tube of gems.
I like my I Rock but these little sticks do NOTHING for me or the stones. They are not sticky, they cant get sticky...its just a handle to me. I found that my Marvy Jewel Stick picks them up as it is sticky and places them down. Either way the sticks do not pick up the jewels...save you cash and buy more jewels. :)
Personally I think these are a waste of money. I love, love, love my I-Rock but find that I really don't need these silly sticks. Save your cash and buy extra gems instead!
