Default Any cheap and realiable replacement for the S Pen?

Does anyone have aby experience or heard of a good replacement pen for the galaxy note. Im looking for one that has all the functions of the S Pen and also can fit inside the pen holder of the note. Thanks in advance.

The S Pen is not an ordinary capacitive touch pen. Those are the pens that have a large round padded end, a bit like a finger tip and you can get them really cheaply. The S Pen is actually a Wacom passive digitiser, like in graphics tablets used by artists and graphic designers and it's pressure sensitive. It also has a button on the shaft. The size and functionality of the S Pen is unique, but you can get genuine Samsung replacements on eBay for $16-$20 or 12-13. I haven't tried yet, but a Wacom pen from a digitiser might work but of course it won't fit inside the Note.

You won't get one to fit inside the pen holder of the Note, be realistic!

But my old Toshiba tablet pen works fine - nay better than the s pen, as the eraser on the top works in s memo! Unfortunately they're not cheap (~30), but I guess any Wacom digitiser pen would work.
