After losing my first SmudgeGuard I was in distress: working on a tablet with a bare hand was out of the question, especially in warmer climate nowadays, so I was frustrated and unproductive for a week. I ordered a new one right away, the SG2 this time since I also wanted to try something new.
I received it Friday, and man... Oh man! It is quite awesome. You see, when you write/draw/work on a tablet you use at least a finger for support, the pinky, but I use two. Maybe I put too much slack on the wrist, but who cares? I got both my pinky AND my ring finger protected now. Or the other way around: my tablet is protected from the friction of those two supporting fingers. So I can draw smoothly and more comfortably than ever.
Picture below: A typical way of how I use my (small) Wacom Intuos4. I wear a size S of the Smudge Guard, it fits nice and snug and it's very breathable.
You can almost see the wear of the tablet surface by judging the reflection of my hand on it. That's not supposed to happen if it's in pristine condition but having such a slick surface only causes skin to sweat and produce oil on it. I'm sure you understand now why using the SmudgeGuard is needed to prevent all that mess.
If you use a tablet, buy a SmudgeGuard! You will not regret it.
