Default Off Topic Stylus Advice Plz

What is a good stylus to use on an iPad that has a precise point for drawing lines and such? Any suggestions are most welcome!

For more precise work, I use a elago Stylus Grip. For painting I use a Nomad Brush (which I ADORE and wish I could find for my computer). I purchased both on Amazon.

Thanks so much for responding I will check both of them out! I have an iPad Air 128gb(art, games and reading books and love Netflix on it) I lost my firmwear for my Creative Zen mp3/video player and was heart broken, it held 30gb, so Hub got me the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 (music and movies via 32gb cards, it only has 8gb space to start) both were for Xmas and my Birthday. I don't have phones functions on them because, I don't do cell phones... but both have wifi. I have really enjoy my iPad so much fun playing and I have went app crazy lol. Those fat head pens are a pain to control and you can't see what your doing till it's too late. I have just a normal Targus and a Straight Talk stylus right now. But I want more precise control over what I want to do. I just discovered all the art programs that are available for tablets. Wow makes your head spin.

The stylus I recommended is still a bit "fat" but it is precise. I got it initially for my youngest daughter who has cerebral palsy since she was having issues getting her iPad to work with either her fingers or a less expensive stylus. Nomad also has a regular stylus, but I've never used it.

I have the Nomad Brush, love it for painting! Thanks Jill! My cousin draws comic books digitally on his iPad and uses the Adonit Jot Pro, it's really fine point, you can find it here: http://www.adonit.net/jot/pro/

I'm thinking about getting one, but it may be too fine point for what I want

Oh that one looks interesting too, so that disk on the end I guess protects the screen? Nice point too! Thanks for helping me out here Kimberly!

Protects the screen and also stabilizes the tip for less jitter like I said, I've never used it, but he swears by it and it's the only one he uses! He says it even sounds and feels like you're sketching on real paper
