I love, *LOVE* this rub-on tool! It has a large, smooth rolling ball point similiar to a ball point pen that makes intricate, small, or crunched together rub-ons easy to apply. It has a nice solid feel about it too, and a comfort grip. The paddle end is also awesome. Not only is it a great way to go over your rub-on again to make sure it adheres well, but I've also used it as a "spatual" to lift up cardstock, paper, and other embellishments when I didn't like the initial placement. This helps keep those items from crinkling when doing that. All in all, a great tool.
