    Adonit today unveiled its new Jot Pro and Jot Mini styluses at CES 2015, which feature grip enhancements and new color options while carrying the same "Precision Disc" ball point design that allows for more precise writing and sketching as opposed to rubber tipped styluses.

    The new Jot Pro comes with a carrying clip and and an etched grip for enhanced comfort, along with an improved cushion tip for quiet writing. Meanwhile, the new Jot Mini also comes with a carrying clip and features the same aluminum and steel body that weighs 13 grams. Both styluses are now offered in in black or silver.

    Mini is actually $19.99. Going to order myself one right now. Kinda tired of using my huge Creative on my iPhone. :eek:

    EDIT: Done deal. Got it in black, $21.64 in total. :D

    Are they very fragile?

    I had the original Jot Pro, and sold it here on the marketplace last year when I got the Creative. No, they can take a few drops without a problem. I haven't tried this new tip, but I didn't have a problem with the first one.

    Don't drop it on the screen though. :eek:

    I bought the first Adonit as a Kickstarter I think it was.

    The accuracy was not there I think, and IMHO the future is to have the stylus a BT device that syncs w iPad, along with software that will ignore pressure touches from writers hand.

    Got mine just now! They must be making lots of money these days. For $20, the packaging was way too nice. They're using a nice cardboard box, and then inside a hard plastic piece where the pen sits in with their logo that had some fancy tape to hold it.

    Very nice black finish. It's satin unlike the semi-gloss that my Jot Pro had. The white lettering is nice and bold too!

    The clip is very thick. Probably not great for a shirt pocket, but worked fine with my wallet case.

    Definitely quiet compared to the original tip.

    Totally worth more than what they're asking for.
