All the styluses I have seen online have this fat pad that covers the whole end of the stylus. I don't see how this is used to draw fine lines. I am looking for a stylus which has a finer tip best used for drawing fine lines and handwriting.

There is a 10 page thread on this same topic.

You should be able to find your answer in there.

Good luck! I gave up the search on finding a fine point and just use my Targus stylus.

It's because the ipad won't register a "touch" unless it's of a certain diameter. Therefore the need for a "fat" tip.

The touch pad has to be a certain diameter to register an input on the iPad screen.

Take a look at Ostylus, it's not the fine point you are looking for but it's the next best thing for drawing and hand writing.

I think what the OP wants is a tip as small as a ball point pen. You can make one

Apple didn't want OP using his wang as a stylus so they made the touch recognition area a bigger diameter
