iPad stylus which has a fine tip?

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.

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