alternatives for S Pen for Note II?


I am an exited new owner of the Galaxy Note II.

Although the phone is great, the S Pen is somewhat of a disappointment. But a Youtube clip describes all the flaws I am experiencing, but he says the Note 10.1 S Pen which is designed for the Tablet Note works better because of the rubberized tip which creates more friction on the surface and therefore more control.

The downsides?

1) It does not fit into the slot for the S-Pen since it is a little bigger than the S-Pen.

2) $45.

Are there other alternatives (Non Samsung) besides shelling out $45 just to have the rubberized tip? Thank you.
