Not keen on spending $150 on a pen for my Surface Pro.
Any ideas for a reasonably priced ($50 - $70) substitute product?

Wouldn't recommend compromising - keep an eye on Trademe?

Any old stylus will work but the Surface Pen is well worth the money.  You'd be mad to not get the proper pen for the device you have.  

 

It's only $130 at Noel Leeming.  I think I got mine from NL last year for around $90 on sale.

So, thought I'd be smarter than everyone else and get a stylus from AliExpress. Definitely looked the part, but was total crap. Which wasn't unexpected, to be honest.

 

So I went and got myself a Surface-compatible Adonit Ink pen instead. Works like a charm, really happy with it.
