Wacom has launched a new stylus this week in the form of the Wacom Pro Pen Slim to help provide a more comfortable digital drawing utensil and alleviate your hand from cramps and other ailments during longer sketching and drawing sessions.

Dami Lee from the Verge explains a little more about the inspiration behind the new slimmer digital stylus from Wacom. “Most of Wacom’s styluses, which come included with its tablets, are a lot thicker than standard pencils, and take some getting used to. As an alternative to the Pro Pen or Grip Pen, some artists have turned to purchasing a separate Classic Pen, which has 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity and feels more like a regular pen. The $69.95 Classic Pen hasn’t been updated for several years, though, and the new Pro Pen slim aims to provide the same natural drawing experience with updated specs.”

Supported tablets include the :

– Wacom Intuos Pro (PTH-660, PTH-860)
– Wacom MobileStudio Pro (DTH-W1320, DTH-W1620)
– Wacom Cintiq Pro (DTH-1320, DTH-1620, DTK-2420, DTH-2420, DTH-3220)
– Wacom Cintiq (DTK1660K0D)
