Sounds like you have/had a stylus that wasn't adequately smooth. A 
slight, virtually invisible nick one also can't feel by touching with 
finger can be enough to prematurely wear screen. When one sees screen 
wear, best to get a new stylus -- at least a new tip for replaceable 
ones. Far simpler and cheaper than replacing digitizer or Newt.

Cross stylus by far the least traumatic to digitizer surface, and by 
far nicest to use for feel on screen -- closest to writing on paper 
because has slight grab compared to virtually none with other styli.

Posts a while back mentioned supplier(s) who still have Cross tips (refills).

All other styli I've tried are harder than the Cross -- perhaps why 
they seem more prone to damage from dropping that makes them 
traumatic to the screen.

Thanks for that tip!

Happy Newtoning!
