    Well this is my 3rd stylus I have broken (same break point) since I got the phone in August last year. Right after getting the phone I bought a 3pk of styli from here, which pretty much looked exactly like the stock one for my 750. Since then I have broken 3, the last one being yesterday while I was tryign to tune into a "podcast" while on a drive to Philadephia yesterday... damn that made the trip so much harder

    They have all seem to break right where the plastic handle goes into the metal for the stylus, like yesterdays break they seem to break slowly, probably from the warmth of my hand crevas Anyway I was on the TreoCentral store last night and I didnt like the other two listed, the solid ones (in colors) looked promising because it was just a solid shaft, but then I would be out a pen... oh well. The problem I had with them was the fact that they were 3 different colors and I couldnt find one that just looked like the stock one... I dont want gold.. or pink, etc..

    The other one listed out of 3 didnt get the best reviews, because the cap came off, etc... What I am looking for is a solid metal, maybe titanium, etc... I can settle stylus that may or may not have a pen, would be nice, not a must, that is stronger and more durable then these ones where the plastic screws into metal and I always seem to break em...

    Any suggestions on where to buy such a thing...?

    I agree. I would like the 100% metal stylus that was my 650's stylus. I did find these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/3-item-set-Metal...QQcmdZViewItem and I'm curious if they're very good...

    I use a pen 3 in one from staples. only 4.99 or so- has black, red, blue or mechanical pen and then stylus. The pencil didnt last long- (kept unscrewing itself) but the pens were nice. The added benefit of a thick "pen style" as opposed to holding a small thin stylus was nice. Try it.

    I have one of those pens... from the days of my ipaq 3765... haha its just more convienient to have it inside the device instead of always having a pen on you... yep the pencil thing on mine died fast, kept coming unscrewed as well while it was inside the pen.. i eventually took it apart and ripped that part out of it...

    How about any of the below links i googled?

    They both look good. The real test is how you handle it. Again, since they have the plastic portions, those could break.
