I’ve seen a few post with Zebra Sharbo XLT pens and thought I’d submit this mod I made to mine.  I have been carrying an ipad stylus and a Sharbo on me everyday.  I found that the iPad capacitive stylus tips are about the same size as the rubber tip on the Sharbo XLT.  After taking off the cap that covers the eraser, its easy to pop the rubberized piece out and insert the rubber tip of a stylus.  i used a Boxwave iPad stylus that I wasn’t using.  I did have to wrap a little clear tape around the base of the stylus tip to get a good tight fit. The stylus tip is hollow and fits over the eraser. One less item i have to carry with me everyday.

Editor’s Note: Cool mod, looks really clean too. Good idea for those out there with a Sharbo and an iPad. Thanks for sharing~

Tactica Talon

When you've got good gear and you use it hard, all the scratches and scuffs that come with it are just the cost of doing business. Sometimes, the battle scars and patina make your gear look even better. But scratched up phone screens? Not so much. The Tactica Talon, on the other hand, is gentle on your tech but tough on EDC tasks thanks to its innovative, non-scratch composite materials. And with 17 tools packed into its unibody design, that's just scratching the surface.

Besides its materials, what sets the Talon apart is how it handles bits. You can actually store two bits inside the Talon's unibody frame via a soft elastomer latch that locks them in place. The Talon even offers two ways to drive bits depending on the task at hand: either by using the tip of the storage compartment for more control, or by turning the tool sideways and using the secondary socket if you need more torque.

The rest of its tools should handle most of your day-to-day tasks, with its wide-mouthed bottle opener, TSA-friendly box opener, rulers, and set of imperial and metric wrenches. For EDC, it's equally well-suited to ride on a keychain or deep in your pocket, given how its polymer construction is soft to the touch and 40% lighter than titanium.

The Talon is available as a reward on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery of this December. It's Tactica's second successful campaign to date, and the campaign is already fully funded. Grab a Talon for your everyday carry at the link below.
