So, I'm trying to figure out which Wacom pens I can use with the 1st Gen Helix.
The included one is exhausting to hold over longer note taking periods and doesn't come with an eraser (for now I configure the button to work as an eraser via the Wacom Feel driver).
What I learned so far is that Wacom penabled pens like the Wacom PL-900 should work.
What I'm particulary interested in is whether the different nibs make a difference in gliding resistance as well. The included pen is much softer than I'd like.
There's also a compatibility list for the Bamboo Feel pens http://bamboostylus.wacom.com/compatibility/
It doesn't explicitly mention the Helix but the Thinkpad Tablet 2. Which I believe is powered by the same technology.
The Bamboo pens would be interesting since they're relatively cheap to get.
Did anyone try to replace the pen with something more serious?
Which pens did work?
And does changing the nibs make any difference?
