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 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...
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.
