Excerpt: I had the art pen and ordered both this classic and another art pen. The art pen is a little wider/fatter and with a rubber cushion. Classic is thinner and harder material. I prefer the art for it's width and softness.
Excerpt: If you like me who started writing with slim pens from the childhood and lost writing skills because of the computers and want to bring back old memory of writing and drawing, this is the pen to consider. The stock pen works exactly like this one. Because of the bulky feel of the stock pen, it feels unnatural feeling. I would highly recommend someone wants to bring back their memory of drawing with slim pen.
Pros: Attractive Styling, Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Protective
Excerpt: My original Wacom grip pen broke, so I figured why not upgrade. However, I found this Art Pen disappointing. I use my Wacom to illustrate comic art and was completely content with the grip pen. The shape, weight and pressure sensitivity was excellent. The Art pen has rotate capability and the Grip does not, but its rotate technology only works with a couple of software packages and even then only with certain brushes.
Pros: ALL software parameters, including barrel rotation are possible with this pen. Three separate types of nibs are included both hard and soft chisel tips, hard and soft round (bullet) tips.
Cons: Does not accept colored ring, so you must use a colored ring on your standard pen, so you don't get them mixed up. If you like to work in a dark environment, then you might get them mixed up. Specifications should state that this pen works with the Inuos5 tablet
Excerpt: The Art Pen by Wacom is a great tool. It is pressure sensitive which allows for the slightest variations in brush strokes. Simple to use and comfortable in hand, it offers several options for tips stored within a compact stand.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
