    Not sure where to stick this topic, feel free to move it if need be.

    I'm just would like people's feedback on replacement stylus' for the DS? I've had my DS for a few months now and find I don't really enjoy playing games like warioware touched or elite beat agents with the default stylus that came with my console. Any ideas on which ones people have had success with or enjoyed the most? Links to stores that sell them as well would be much appreciated! [​IMG] Thanks for any feedback.

    Real men use their penis.


    Nah I just use the one that was supplied with the DS, nothing wrong with it.
    Annnd I'm pretty sure this shouldn't be under GBA hardware [​IMG]

    There isen't really any difference between styluss. They are all just tiny plastic pens.

    I just use the one that came with it. And this really should be under DS hardware, not GBA hardware.

    That one looks really good. Although the review site seems to be down. I couldn't find it anywhere on play-asia or dealextreme, any suggestions on where to pick it up?

    I've been using the metal stylus others have recommended. It's amazing for the price. It's been put under heavy uses, and it's still perfectly fine. Feels much stronger than the original, and I really like the extending feature. They won't be leaving the DS anytime soon.

    What about the one that you can wrap around your thumb? Does anyone have any opinions about that one?

    Been using the ones that came with my Pelican DS Starter Kit for almost three years now. Very solid plastic construction, perfect size for me, with the best tracking tip I've ever used.

    Not really a stylus, but I've never really found much use for it.

    I have used the Panache Battle Pro Stylus for over a year now and it is far better than any other stylus I have tried.
    The weight of the brass makes it quite substantial and very pleasing to use.
    I have just treated myself to a limited edition silver Zelda edition lite and I think I will have to buy a new Battle Pro stylus to go in that and leave the other one in my black lite....

    Best ones I've used are the special Nintendo ones that come with certain games. My Kirby stylus lasted about a year before the tip finally broke (tip never wore down or anything).

    i was using the retractable metal one that came with ez flash v. it felt nice but it did scratch the screen a lot faster than the standard one. it didn't glide over the screen; lot's of friction.

    There's this one stylus that's 18K solid gold (semi-hollow, though). It's really nice; It's got a plastic tip and has a good weight to it. I use it regularly.

    Originally, I tried the Hori ones that DjoeNtje mentioned, but the clear plastic part of it started cracking and splitting.

    Now I use the metal extendable ones from Deal Extreme. MUCH higher quality.
