Stylus's, do they work with Nook Anti-Glare Screens

Saw several messages regarding stylus's.  I found two that look interesting (Targus and Stylus-R-Us). 

 

What I want to know is, if I cover my Nook color screen with the Anti-Glare screen protectors I bought from B&N, will the stylus's still be usable?

Yes. I have the anti-glare screen protector, and my stylus works fine.

I am thinking Targus must be the way to go.  I bought the Rocketfish stylus from BB for 16.99 and while tapping works quite well, swiping doesn't work at ALL.  If the Targus swipes I want one!

I bought a tarsus today at walmart. It really works well, and I even have a anti glare protector. I can even swipe with it...not as sensitive as your finger for swiping though.

The problem with mine is it is TOO sensitive for swiping.  In the store rather than scrolling it immediately selects and pops open item windows.  In the library it opens books.  When in a book it either will not turn pages at all, or - goes into hyper mode and jumps ahead 3 or 4 at a time!
