I found the rubber case slippery and the entire thing is hard to handle. It might be easier to drop with the case on. Then, I bought the iBall. It fits the PRO 12.2 very tightly. I don't know if it is bad to the tablet. I also worry that if I just hold a corner (the ball), the tablet may break.
It shouldn't snap in half from holding it at the corners, but constant pressure on the glass can cause micro fractures that severely weaken the screen's integrity.
So if it's really very tight, you may want to be prepared for a possible screen crack appearing out of nowhere. Especially when there's fluctuations in the ambient temperature.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
