    I am considering a stylus for note taking and would like to find one that takes little to no pressure. What are your opinions?

    I've been using the stylus-r-us ones since last Dec. Wouldn't use anything else for any reason.

    Just my 2 cents adjusted to $2.00 for inflation.

    Several on the market, all do the same thing. You need to check them out to see if one works better for you than another. I saw Target is carrying a couple when I was there last.

    I bought the griffin stylus.
    It's not too bad. Not really used it much though.

    I recently got my stylus r us. My son and I compared it to his griffin stylus, and they aren't
    Even in the same league as far as lightness of touch required.
    wondering how pogo compares with stylus r us? I like their clips and size

    I do not intend sarcasm here---just thought you might not have realized that a search can be effective.

    For example, I have done a comparison of a number of styli (stylii, styluses?), and you can find them with a simple search in this subforum. Others have done likewise.

    It would be a real pain to keep repeating the same verbiage.

    So, please, don't be offended. Just try the search and you will be amply rewarded!

    FYI I tried that before I posted and didn't find what I was looking for.

    I finally bought one from Stylus R Us and absolutely love it. Since I have a light touch, it works well for me.

    I bought griffin stylus and its ok. I find it a little short, kind of like a big crayon with a rubber tip.

    I saw a great looking stylus called the O stylus, that I will buy next once our Canadian postal strike is over.

    Check it out here:

    ostylus dot com

    If anyone has one, could you review it?

    Hi Andy;

    If your griffin is too short, try stylus-r-us. They have a dozen telescoping ones and they outperform every other stylus out there, including the JOT and faraday. For reals.

    I just got the AYL stylus. It also has a roller ball pen. I really like it. It works great.

    I had been using the Hard Candy stylus, but the caps have become loose in less than 1 year's worth of moderate use, the stylus does not have a pocket clip, and the caps do not fit on the other ends of the opposite side of the stylus you are using. AYL stylus meets all of the criteria.

    The AYL stylus has the hard rubber tip. It moves smoothly. I have used it on WritePad, docAS, and PhatPad (which I also just bought), as well has other apps for scrolling and tapping. It works great. The pen is a good roller ball also. All in all, I have been pleased with the stylus in the 3 weeks I have been using it.
