Max 2 and Alternative Stylus

Saw this thread about Wacom pen use for Max 2:

For different purposes, got a Bamboo Tip and it turns out to almost work for the Max 2. Wasn't able to sketch in the Note app, but ordinary Android UI interactions appear ok (e.g. touching of buttons).

Also had access to an old Galaxy Note 2 stylus which appears fully functional.

IIUC, both of these are from Wacom.

Anyone else tried other options?

I can verify that the samsung stylus' seem to work. I tried one from the first Note phone, and another from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition.

Another option: the stylus for the Alldocube Mix Plus 2-in-1 tablet which also has an eraser that works! There's a third button that enables select in Windows, but not sure yet if it does anything on the Max 2

Working eraser functionality sounds great!

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like pressing the button on the Note 2 stylus has any effect

I use the Bamboo stylus for the Samsung Note. It works fine but, no erasure.

Just bought an Adonit Pro 3 and works perfectly on my Boox T76ML

Note: don't buy their powered stylus like Dash, it's garbage.

This Thinkpad digitizer pen works well. It has both a button and an eraser, and the one that I got years ago came with a "flex" nib (see this article on Wacom nibs).

However, the stylus that shipped with my Max 2 seems better at creating varying line widths by tilting the pen.

The HP Zbook X2 pen also is fully functional (with eraser). Mine came in a package with a nice case, nib remover, 4 spare plastic nibs, and 6 fiber nibs.

FYI, the approximate diameters of the nibs on these pens is as follows:
Max 2 nib 1.54 mm (tip), 0.84 mm (shaft)
Thinkpad nib 1.30 mm
Zbook X2 nib 1.52 mm (tip), 0.95 mm (shaft)
