    Can anyone recommend a good, pen-sized stylus for the iPad? I am looking for something pretty precise for drawing & writing. I have seen several on Amazon and a few other places, however, none of them seem to be what I am looking for. I tried one that had a soft, felt-like tip, which I can appreciate because I don't want to scratch up the screen, but it was too wide, trying to simulate a fingertip and I really need something with a fine tip.


    ***UPDATE***

    I just received my Dagi today, and I absolutely love it. The point takes a little getting used to, but once you get it, its great. I highly recommend. Also seems to be a little heavier than most stylus which is also a plus. The company that sells these on eBay is located in Taiwan, so they take a little while to reach the states (mine took 2 weeks) no big deal. Thanks for the advice bjameslynch.

    The one I've been looking at is the Dagi Stylus. What I like about it is it has a clear plastic head with a small sensor dot on it so you can see exactly where you're drawing. I know lots of artists swear by the Pogo Sketch Stylus, but it looks too spongy and inaccurate for my liking. I haven't actually tried the Dagi yet, but here's the Youtube review that piqued my interest: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfTeIIi79r8]YouTube - Dagi Stylus on Apple Ipad and Sketchbook Pro[/ame]

    To order them, just search for "dagi stylus" on ebay. There's tons available, and they run about $20. Hope this helps.

    Boxwave makes a drawing stylus too. Amazon reviews tend toward people saying the PogoSketch is too squishy, and they like the Boxwave much better. When I have given up drawing with my finger, I'll be ordering a Boxwave.

    I'm just looking for one for hand writing notes, not so much for drawing. So I'm loooking for a med / fine point. Any ideas?

    I have been using the Pogo but I agree that it has a larger tip than it needs to have. Still it is a lot thinner than my finger. To get finer details I either zoom in on the work or set the line thickness thinner in applications that will allow you to adjust this setting and that seems to have done the trick for me.

    But I would also be interested in trying a thinner tipped stylus.

    That's the thing: Capacitive screens cannot use "pointy" styli at all - that quarter-inch blob on a pogo, or the ball of foam on a boxwave, is about as small as it gets. I'm a digital artist myself and am used to a Wacom digitizer with an active pen. I'm a bit scared of how it'll be when I get my iPad, but I have seen people do really, really great art with one, so I'm hopeful.

    I have seen some like this posted on this forum, here in accessories. I don't remember but it may have been an iCase brand

    I just got the boxwave stylus in the mail and it beats the Pogo by leaps and bounds. I don't know what Pogo was thinking. I wish I'd been able to tell by viewing the pages how much better the boxwave stylus was. I could kick myself.

    I also got Dagi P501 for my iPad, it's truly awesome.:) I use it with NoteTaker and Noterize Apps and it works really well. There is a new store in US that sells them by the way.

    Look at the Portenzo cases - I have one with the optional stylus holder and I love it.
