    Type of Stylus to Buy?

    I have a Transformer Prime TF201. I couldn't find a thread that deals with my specific stylus type questions, so here they are.

    1) I've seen capacitive stylus types online that have thick and thin tips. I plan on writing and drawing. Should I be purchasing both types? Or, will just one type suffice?

    2) If buying both types is recommended, are there any stylus' that incorporate both features in one?

    3) There seems to be a great discrepancy of prices between stylus models. Does buying "cheap" usually mean that I'd be wasting my money? Conversely, does buying "expensive" mean I'd likely be doing the same thing?

    Thanks for all replies.
    Dave

    I have bought the Adonit Jot, because it has a clear plastic disc on the tip, so it feels just like writing with a pen.
    For drawing I wouldn't know which stylus is best.
    The Adonit has some flaws (search for it on this forum and on XDA forum), but still the best to write with.
    It's not cheap (around 30 bucks), but I bought a cheap rubber tipped stylus and that sucked...

    I had look at one and the first thought that came to mind was that the tip looked like some alien life sucking appendage you'd see in a really cheap science fiction movie.

    Considering how big that clear plastic tip is, I'm wondering if it's the equivalent of the big fat tip on the other brands of stylus?

    I haven't come across any articles where someone "raved" about the drawing capacity of a product.
    I'll keep my eyes open though, I've only tried the bargain bin soft/rubber tip kinds, they seem ok for average tasks...I couldn't imagine trying to draw with them though, not super accurate by any means. This might be one of those times that a good quality--task specific tool--may be worth the extra $'s in the long run.
