I don't want to give away too much or count my chickens before they hatch, but I am designing a stylus that has potential to blow all others out of the water. I'll keep you guys and gals up to date if anyone cares. Got some parts ordered. Hopefully the prototype will turn out as planned

Just an update. On another thread which I can't find right now ( in order to give proper credit), someone recommended dipping the tip of a Boxwave into talcum powder to make it less "grabby." I just tried that with my Targus and it works amazingly well. With this trick, I now like my Targus better than the Roger iWand (and the Dagi, which I also have). Now if it were only a biit longer---!

Just be sure to use a light touch, barely touching the screen works best. And give it an adequate time for testing before making up your mind. I really like my Stylus-R-Us.

Yea I hear you need a light touch, not sure how that will work out for me I press hard with pens.

Yes, that is the biggest drawback to the iWand. I just find that the super light touch it requires is highly unnatural for me. In trying to lighten up my touch, I find that operation becomes unreliable.

So far, my preferred stylus is my Targus, dipped occasionally in talcum to reduce the "stickiness.". Unfortunately, it is a bit too short. I have noticed that stylus marketers often do not give the length (check the Pogo web page).

As do I, but it didn't take me too long to adjust to the light touch necessary for the Stylus-R-Us. But I was also willing to practice with it before giving up. I've tried several different stylii before this one and the Stylus-R-Us is the one I prefer. Others may feel differently.

I'm willing to practice. Thanks for the input, once I get it in the mail I will give a review.

I received my stylus today from Stylus R Us, I also purchased the Targus stylus. I have used both today for awhile they both have good and bad things about them.

Stylus R Us:
Good:
styles- I really like that you get lots of options and sizes.
No pressure to use.

Bad:
Price $37.99 with shipping
Hard to use at first
Fragile (feels like it will brake or not safe to put in a carrying bag)

Targus:
Good:
Price $14.99
Easy to use
Sturdy

Bad:
Size

Overall the Targus works best for me, I like that you need a little pressure to use. I feel like have much more control when writing with it. The Stylus R Us is nice just don't think the price is worth it. I would suggest getting the Targus first and see what you think, if you don't like it then return and try Stylus R Us. I hope this short review can help.

I also like the Targus stylus. I tried the Acase gen 2 stylus, just like the Targus but a little longer and narrower. But after using for 2 days the tip was torn. So I sent it back to Amazon.
I would like to try one of the iWands but I don't know if the price is worth it to test it out.

The Stylus-R-Us compared to the Targus...

I just got the Stylus-R-Us for my Ipad 2 and it is absolutely AMAZING!!!
I had searched every stylus I could find and without a doubt these stylus were the winner. The soft touch along with the ability to extend the telescopic feature makes this the Top-of-the-line without question. I was so thrilled as soon as I tried this stylus that I've been spreading the word to everyone. Buy one and you'll thank me.

Well that didn't last long. I had extra money left form last paycheck so I decided to get two. The iWand 9" and the Light Touch. Hopefully they will be what everyone is saying.

Thanks for the great review, Matt...most importantly the small note about having a screen shield !! I will return my iStylus and get a Roger wand...yes we can certainly spend money on these wonderful toys can't we. :)
