Default Soft, Pointed Tip Stylus?

Do they make (and would it work) a soft, pointed, rubber tipped stylus? I have a nice stylus but it has the rounded end which makes it difficult to draw with. How do I get into those tight spaces on a drawing - other than enlarging it so much that I can't even tell what I'm looking at?

Thanks.

I believe the problem is the minimum size touch for the capacitative screen is larger than the kind of small point you're looking for. Pretty sure that's why they don't make a stylus that small, it just wouldn't work.

That makes sense - I never thought of that. As usual, the forum comes through for me again.

Yeah, it looks like the next generation of tablets will have that but it's taken me this long to find one that I would like. I am sure we'll be onto the next-next before I settle for one.
