    I would pm Christine ( Saphire) she is the expert and has gone through lots of different stylus.
    She is excellent at returning PMs.

    I don't have a lot of variety experience with styli, but I use a firm domed-tip artist from iFaraday.com. The tip is lined with a conductive fabric as opposed to most rubber tips. My wife uses one of the Hand Styli, a click retractable function with a ridiculously narrow (iPad stylus speaking) tip. It's squishy rubber and takes a little patience to get adjusted to it.

    Pat, I have only just seen this thread, have you looked at the adonit range or the nomad brushes they are both very good but are totally different to each other. The brush is brilliant for very fluid work using the oil brush, the adonit with its hard plastic fine point is great for fine detail because you can see the strokes being made with more precision. I love using both depending on what type of painting I am doing.
    The adonit you can get from here in the UK

    I'm looking to get the Jot stylus, but I'm undecided on if I should "go all in" with the pressure-sensitive Touch or just get the Pro. I do a lot of fine line work so I feel either of these would benefit, but using a Wacom for the longest time I really miss pressure sensitivity on the iPad.

    I have both the jot pro and the touch. One thing I must point out is it does scratch the screen protector its probably because its a form of plastic the same as the tip. I change it when the screen starts to lose some of its clarity, they say it won't scratch the glass screen unless there is grit on the screen but I am not going to take the chance so use a screen protector at all times, it only takes a little bit of dust you don't notice under the tip when you are doing a line, then its to late.
    The pro version doesn't have a flexible tip so it can be a bit noisy on the screen, the touch being sprung loaded is much nicer to use, it does take a little while to get used to the amount of pressure to use for getting thin and thick strokes. I find the best tool is the pencil to sketch it is brilliant.
