I just looked over the iFaraday website again. I thought about what you said about firmness of the tip and decided that the shallow angle model isn't appropriate for me because it is also advertised as "light touch". So I kinda wiped out and ordered the "Rx," which is touted as a handwriting tool for medicos. There is a nonconductive end collar just above the tip which is supposed to prevent electrical contact with the screen at low angles. It also has a cap and a clip. I am anxious to see if it provides stiff competition with the Jot......?
I have the RX. Ordered it after I had received the "Artist" model. Works relatively well. "Fatter" than the Artist and feels more like a fountain pen. However, it is very lightweight compared to the Jot Pro, for example. Sent an email to Rustle (at iFaraday) indicating that I'd like to have a bit more "heft." He responded that making it heavier wasn't a problem; he was trying to make it as light as possible. So I think we just differ in terms of objectives. The RX model does have a cap that screws on the stylus end. Not nearly as classy as the Jot Pro, but at least it keeps the tip from picking up stuff when it's lying around.
Comparing the "height" of the tip on the Artist model and the RX, the latter is about twice as tall, so it may resolve your problem with scraping the barrel on the screen. I'm sure I don't have to encourage you to report back on your experience.
