I guess this is a poll, which is more popular and used by most pencilers, 18'' or 24''?
I bought an 18'' today to replace another 18'' one that I accidently stepped on and bent ( btw, trying to hammer it flat with a dumbbell doesn't work, :laugh: ), Is 18'' long enough for use with most average sized drawing tables, or would I be better off with a 24'' or even longer? I currently draw on a board, but I will get a drawing table eventually.

I've always used a 24 inch but it's honestly up to what you feel most comfortable with. !8 maybe a bit short for 11 x 17 inch board though.

I was thinking 18 is a bit short as well, but this Blambot page says 18 is perfect for comic work:
