Is it possible to get a path in tikz that looks like \rightsquigarrow?

It is possible, indeed. You can use the decorations.pathmorphing library for this, which allows very fine control over how your paths look:



\tikz \draw [->,
line join=round,
decorate, decoration={
    segment length=4,
    post length=2pt
}]  (0,0) -- (0.3,0);

rightsquigarrow and tikz equivalent
