    Fine point stylus

    Can anyone recommend me a fine tipped stylus? I would like one for drawing. Or is it impossible to make one with a tip thats thinner than a fingertip? You'd think as long as the stylus is conductive that the size of the point wouldn't matter.

    If fine pointed styli don't exist, then are regular sized ones such as the pogo stylus still accurate enough to draw with?

    There is a limit to the contact area when using a stylus, it can only be so small before the detection goes wonky/jumpy, BUT there is a solution which has been covered in several threads in this very forum (and there's even one only a few posts below yours). The Dagi stylus has a clear tip, which makes the visible contact point tiny, it feels like using a normal pen.

    Un fortunatly going toba few local shops and such i wasnt able to find a fine poit stylus. I ended up buying a bamboo stylus from wacom. I bought it just for my tf, mostly for sketch book pro. It works for the most point you just got to get used to .

    I don't think that u can sharp the stylus u have...

    I have one from Acase (bought it on Amazon) and I am not really impressed. Its good for selecting stuff, but so far my finger works better on sketch.

    I might buy one from dagi, but I want to hear from someone who have one.

    A few of us on this forum have dagis, it's covered pretty extensively in those threads i linked to in my previous post.

    In short, they're the best stylus you can get, they're pretty cheap considering you get a freebie when you buy direct (or through their ebay seller), and they come in orange.

    I just got a Dagi 504 today and can confirm that it is the finest stylus I've seen and a finer point you're not likely to find.

    Have you used anything like a Targus or a Boxwave? One of those with a rubber tip? The think I like about those is that there's a bit of 'give' when you write, so you get some sort of tactile feedback when you use it. I have a 501 (the fixed-tip one) and I hated it because it just wasn't as nice to write with a hard object on the screen. How's the 504? The spring look like it might have some 'give' to it too.

    I have more different stylus models than I can count. Began with a Pogo for my phone a long time ago when most people did realize you could use any type of pointing device with a touch screen. The pints on some are like hard foam some feel more like rubber. I have tried but do not own a Boxwave and the Targus.

    The Dagi doesn't have a lot of give but it's very comfortable to use and the accuracy is the best I've found.

    Thanks for that. I might give the 504 a try then. Just one last question: How's the 504 compared to the 501 (if you have it)? If it's not much of an improvement, then I might not bother.
