It has a fine point, which looks like the tip of a ball pen, but it has a small clear plastic disc attached by tiny ball joint; the disc spreads the pressure, so as not to damage the surface, and the ball joint allows you to use the stylus at any angle. The clip is machined out of the body, so it is unlikely to ever break off. The tip is protected, when not in use, by a screw-on cap, and this screws onto the back of the stylus so it doesn't get lost. As an engineer, I'm very impressed (I've been looking for something like this for a very long time), and the price makes it accessible.
And it looks good, too !
