Question for you. What did Rustle due to this new pen to cover the metal barrel so that the metal wont hit the glass? I too write on an angle and I also do it on occasional when I write long words, as I tend to press harder the farther my hand moves from the edge of the screen.
Also, how does the pen glide that you have (the latest one he made for you)? I dont need silk like fluidity, but note taker HD will register every jagged angle while writing in script. Ipad already takes handwriting down a notch, but mine is ok to begin with so its not too bad, but if I have lots ot stutters or stop and starts, it will look horrible.
Last question. I tend to like bigger barreled pens when I write. For whatever reason they help me write neater and my hand gets less fatigued. How is the width of the stylus?
The tip glides very well and does not require a lot of pressure to activate. It isn't so slick that you will feel that you are writing on an oiled surface or anything like that, though. For me, there is just the right amount of "tooth" for writing purposes.
I think the key ingredients are the tip substrate and the conductive fiber clothing the tip. I have tried a number myself, and this combination seems to be about optimum for handwriting apps. Don't know about artistic applications or for simply punching virtual keys---though this one does the latter just fine.

iFaraday.com, but I didn't double check that.
P. S. Just checked, and that is the correct url. I noticed that there is a version labeled "coming soon" that has a cap. Whether he can supply you with one that has the features I discribed is something only he can tell you! Good luck.

Thanks for the help.
I received my iFaraday Stylus yesterday. I am loving it! It is very smooth and effortless. If I were to design the perfect stylus for my hand and style, I would make it a wee bit heavier, a little longer, and a bit wider.
Does anyone know if these improvements are found on the upcoming Executive? When will that be released?
Which one of them did you get, or did you get the whole set? Do you have the Alupen or the Wacom?Originally Posted by SusanR
I got the basic model in green.
You might try the version Rustle made up for me. I think he calls it the Art Dome. I wanted exactly the same things as you, and it provides them all.
In response to info, I have the Alupen. It is a good one, but too short for me. I ordered the Wacom, but the backorder was too long so I canceled.
