Looking for a full sized, nicely weighted, pen-feel stylus that has definitely been confirmed to work with the 2014 edition with no offset etc.

Same here! I had a bamboo feel which had an offset. I've e-mailed bamboo to see which of their model's work but I haven't heard back yet. I'm wondering if the samsung one works well. I can't find it in any local stores though.

Bamboo stylus Feel. I've got the carbon/aluminum one. Works well!

Does the stylus have an eraser on the back like the Samsung one?

... Never mind. It doesn't have an eraser. Looks like the Samsung one for now. For that kind of jack it should have the same functionality.

I have a sense this one won't work either, as one of the reviews says it's slightly off on the Note 8.0. Seems like the same issue.

I was afraid of that.

I tried the bamboo feel carbon model, there is a significant 2mm offset. I also tried a bamboo fell model for galaxy note, it has much less offset, but also a little bit.

I've been using a Microsoft Surface stylus without any issue. Please note I do not keep "show stylus" enabled on my Notes, but where the pen lands is where the pen draws, there is no offset with actually writing / drawing. The eraser also works. I figured I would give it a try once I heard Microsoft has a Wacom Digitizer.

Best price is surprisingly Best Buy http://www.bestbuy.com/site/pen-for-...0pen&cp=1&lp=1 Amazon is quite a bit more http://www.amazon.com/Original-Micro...face+rt+stylus

It has the weight / feel of a mechanical pencil, not sure if that helps any but it's not bad at all.

I like the bamboo feel more, but i've heard it has offset issues and i'm not sure if it has an eraser so this might end up being better.
