Where to get fine tipped stylus for capacity screen devices

I've seen Samsung Galaxy Note 1 (the 1st version) comes with fine
tipped hard stylus (sort of plastic tip).

However, when I searched in Amazon.com or elsewhere, all the
fine-tipped stylus for capacitive devices comes with piece of pad
at the tip : refer to a few of the links below:



I happen to read somewhere that manufacturers faced certain
technical challenges in making fine tipped stylus for capacitive
surfaces but can't recall where I read that.  How then did Note 1
have it?  Isn't Note 1 capacitive?

Is there anywhere I can get those fine-tipped stylus for writing
on iPhone or iPad or capacitive devices?  Pls provide links that
I can buy them.

I'm not used to those with soft rubberized fat tips.

Capacitive screens need a conductive tip that mimics a finger and are not pressure-sensitive like the old palm pilots and such devices.  The screen surface is also more sensitive and hard plastic stylus may scratch or damage the surface .. for these reasons just about all the stylii have conductive foam/rubber tips.  It is hard to get stylii with tips less than 5mm diameter.

The Adonit Stylus for Evernote is one of the finest tips available.

The Jot Pro has a plastic and metal tip but looks cumbersome ..

The iPen2 coming next month would appear to offer a superfine dense rubber tip and pressure sensitivity which would approach a ballpoint pen but it isn't going to be cheap

I could have just bought those Galaxy Notes styli but they are rather
small & the grip is not comfortable.  I'm looking for those pen-sized
styli with fine tip

Would Galaxy Note's fine tip stylus work on say iPhone or iPad?
Isn't Galaxy Note's screen capacitive screen?  Thought I saw
its stylus' tip is only about 1-1.5mm only?

If you're referring to the S-Pen for the Note as far as I'm aware it isn't capacitive

Is iPen2 (or anything like it) going to cost below US$30 ?

The evernote meets what I need except its steep price

Try over $100 for the iPen2!!

I don't think you're going to find one for sale at anything like that price.

If you're feeling creative you could make one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alrweIVt2RQ
