Excerpt: This pen gives you excellent control over calligraphic and fan brushes in Photoshop. A real pleasure to use. Keep the normal pen handy though, as it does not have an eraser end. I will thoroughly enjoy having this option for painting and especially hand lettering projects.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Control, Increased Productivity, Lightweight, Natural Feel
Summary: I had gotten the tablet because I wanted more precision for my design work. It definitely is great for that. I found added benefits if the pen relieved the stress on my wrist from using the mouse. Holding a pen feels more natural since we've been conditioned from childhood. My CT is completely gone. The one annoyance I have that the tip sometimes accidentally cause double clicks. I wish Wacom would fix it by allow the ability to turn that on/off in the settings.
The Wacom "classic" pen works fine, but is slightly harder to hold than the Wacom "grip" pen

Summary: I also have a Wacom "grip" pen. After trying a new Wacom "classic" pen, I've decided that I like the grip pen better. The "classic" pen works just fine -- nothing wrong with it. It actually looks more elegant than the grip pen, but I think it's a little harder to hold in the hand than the grip pen -- which is what one would expect from the names given to the two models.
Excerpt: My original pen stopped working and I needed a replacement. I use the Wacom tablet Intuos3 with PS for making intricate composit digital photography. The Classic Pen was a perfect replacement. The price was very reasonable which was an added value. It took a little getting used to since the original pen was wider, but it took only a few practice strokes and a little effort to overcome the obstical. I would recommend it to anyone that uses Wacom tablets.
