Will the Surface Pro pen work with a Thinkpad Tablet 2? Or any other wacom pen? I really wish the pen was larger, easier to hit the right click, and had an eraser function built in, hence the interest. Any recomendations? Thanks!

Providing your TPT2 is a model fitted with the active Wacom digitizer and pen, then yes, the Surface Pro pen is compatible.
See here for a list of compatible pens:

I just picked up a pair of replacement styli that are working great for me on my TPT2...
Search eBay for "Fujitsu FPCPN28AP Replacement Stylus". Often they come in a pack of two. They work much better (because of the size of the barrel) plus the eraser on top is great. I also ordered new tips from Wacom that produce a little more friction on the glass surface, which makes inking even more precise.
I ran across a lot of good info on inking and styli (inluding tips about the Fujitsu and felt Wacom tips) in the post referenced by gcoupe...

I've gotten used to the pen, though I've simply disabled the right click button. I agree that without any ridges (like on the Samsung Note pens) there's no way to find the thing, which renders it mostly useless.
If you're looking for a good replacement, the Lenovo pen that was designed for previous generation X series tablets is very good. I still use mine. I've also read good things about Fujitsu's pens. Be careful when buying, however, as Fujitsu and some other manufacturers have started moving to N-Trig pens.
