Default Screen protector that feels like paper

Hi I have just bought the tablet last night! Loving it so far.

The reason I bought this ridiculously big tablet is because I want to use it like paper and pencil (which is a perfect size for the purpose actually). However I was wondering if there's such screen protector that feels like a paper when drawing/writing with the S-pen? I have been told matte or anti-glare could offer a pretty close experience but it will sacrifice visual clarity (awesome colour gamut on this thing!).

Looking forward to hear from any of you!

No direct experience because I hate screen protectors and no longer use them but you could try playing with some different nibs in the SPen. These are design to give varying drag feeling.

Thanks for the idea. Are you talking about the extra nibs that come together with the tablet? I thought they are all identical.

I have also seen a C-pen from samsung, not sure what that does, would that be closer to my needs?

Thanks

Like you I thought all nibs were the same but in looking at this picture it seems like they have different types of nibs. So you maybe able to get some different feeling nibs from wacomb. Wacom pen nibs

It should come with two different nibs, one soft-tipped and one hard.

I'll test tomorrow if the nibs are the same as the ones in my Intuos pen. If they are, you could order some of those.

I have a Intuos too. The stylus is not picked up by the tablet. However I have not tried putting the nib on the S pen

On the Note 3 you could use various Tempered Glass screen protectors that made the experience a bit more like paper, but I dont think those are available for the NotePro. (That and they're already 60 quid in 5.7". In 12.2" they'd be around 200 quid.)

So, that's a no. The tips are far too big for the Spen, and about 0.3mm too thick for the Wacom Bamboo Feel pen.

Anyone own a Bamboo tablet and have the possibility to test if the Bamboo tips fit in the Bamboo Feel pen?
