    My girlfriend lent me her DS to mess around with, but she lost the stylus.

    I've been looking around for a good, sturdy stylus that won't break easily. Anyone know of good companies that make them?

    I've seen the BD&A ones at Gamestop and BestBuy, but I'm still shopping around for something worthwhile.

    Has anyone tried the styluses from Radioshack made by the company Gigabyte? :wtf:

    Just wondering. Thanks for your time.

    Heh, I've always just used Mechanical Pencils (be sure to push the lead in first and have a screen protector on because it may scratch it at certain angles).

    If you are looking to buy a real stylus though, there are a bunch on ebay [​IMG]

    Yeah I've seen them on ebay but the reviews from them are pretty bad. I'd rather buy one in-store for a decent price unless there are sturdy ones online for cheap.

    yes, this tops the list. metallic grip, weighs good on the hands, slick glowing tip... too bad they don't ship to my country though. i would've loved to have one. [​IMG]

    I would definitely try it after all I've heard about it, but I dont have that kind of money -___-

    Any other recommendations? Anyone know of the BD&A brand or the PDP brand?

    If you dont mind waiting for shipping, I got this sweet stylus from Renchi.com >> In.fem DS Touch Pen It's sturdy and kinda girly so I like it...
    There are a bunch of different stylus and DS accessories on the site too.


    EDIT : wait...haha, I might've read this wrong, I thought you were looking for a stylus for your GF. Pfff...though that site still has cool non-girly stylus anyway, but y'know...
