As a stylus this thing works very well. I have tried numerous types and brands of styluses and so far this one exceeds them all. As a pen... well, the jury is still out. I could not find any information on the type of pen refill before purchase, but since it was a sales item and from a reputable manufacturer I rolled the dice and bought one. My hope was that it would use a standard Parker style refill so I could replace the stock pen with a Space Pen cartridge. I work in IT and have found having a Space Pen to be indispensable with its many unique attributes over most all others--primarily its ability to write in any orientation and in many extraordinary circumstances. Alas, when I got the stylus and examined the pen I found it was not a Parker style nor could it be replaced with such. After more online research I found a FAQ on Wacom website that gave the exact pen details: standard ball pen mini cartridge with 0.7mm ball point size and black ink color (67.2mm long x 2.3mm diameter).

I like the fact that it has a regular pen too. After researching, this seemed to be a really good stylus. I do think it is good, but writing with it on an iPad isn't exactly like a pen ot pencil. I have to write a little bigger for it to be legible. It seems to drop out occasionally, though I'm pretty sure that's my own error in getting used to it - not a fault of the stylus.

I haven't tried other styluses, so it's probably just a different experience than pen or pencil overall. Having a rubber soft tip makes it harder to know where you're writing vs. a sharper point. But once again, it seems all styuses have a big rubber tip vs. a sharp point.

Not a bad pen for smaller hands

Comments about Wacom Bamboo Stylus Duo / Pen:

The pen length is a bit short for my adult male hand. I like the weight of it, it feels substantial, but being a bit short it feels as if it may slip out of my hand any moment. If the coating on it would be a bit more 'grippy' it would be much better. The stylus part of this device is nice but again it is just about 3/4"-1" too short for my hands.

Comments about Wacom Bamboo Stylus Duo / Pen:

Bought cause was a nice deal but didn't really had need for an stylus but is nice to have both in one.

Nice brush finish on the pen cap although be careful to drop it cause it scratches easy.

Stylus isn't the best but for occasionally using it, gets the job done.

      This a great stylus/pen. It's perfect for my needs. One end is a stylus. I use it on my iPad, and it's very responsive. The other end is the pen and it writes smoothly. The entire thing feels pretty substantial in my hand, not light like some cheap plastic.

          Comments about Wacom Bamboo Stylus Duo / Pen:

          Great buy at $ bucks. Feels good in the hand and sturdy. The ink is kind of dull so I went out to buy a different ink for the pen itself. Stylus side is basic and works fine for what I need it for. Would buy again, especially for price.

              This is the second Bamboo stylus I've owned, the first with a pencil on the other end. The pencil works great, but I plan to keep the cover over the pencil and use the stylus. The stylus is smaller than most and seems to interact with the phone or tablet better that the dime-store variety. It a great value given the price I paid.

                  This is one the best stylus that I have ever used, and what makes it great is the premium feel and build quality. They have weight balanced this stylus which makes it a nice experience to use. However, remember that it is not a digitizer type stylus so do not expect it to be as precise as a Galaxy Note 4, or any phone/tablet/computer that uses the different more expensive and advanced technology. This means you can't really make precise notes or sketches using this stylus. All you can do is maybe make a quick scribble or large font note. Also the quality of the capacitive touch screen of your device will make a difference as it works great on only 2 out of my 3 devices. All in all, it is a steal at below [$], and having a conventional pen on the other side is a very nice advantage. However best of luck finding a refill when the original ink cartridge runs out as I could not find it easily on B&H, amazon or even Wacom's own site.

                  Ergonomics seem good enough. Weight seems decent. I have a laptop that requires a Wacom Digitizer not capacitive so will likely pass this along to one of my friends with an ipad. Great price for sure when I purchased.
