This is by far my favorite felting tool. I also have the Clover big green felting pen, and that's a good one too, but I find this one more versatile. The green one holds 5 needles, and this one holds 3. The green one has a spring-action to it, and this one doesn't. What that means is this one has a lot more control and versatility. When you're being careful with areas, it's a lot harder to force a spring-action tool into felt. I find the green one a little bit clumsy sometimes! But if you're doing a large flat area it can work very well. Overall though, I use this one way more.
Got this because felting needles on their own are too thin to hold comfortably for long periods of time - it works for what it is, but I don't see myself ever needing to use three at a time because I only work on smaller pieces. It is comfortable, and does exactly what you'll think it does - my only gripes are as follows:
1) I read somewhere else that the pen cap doesn't slip onto the back and it's true; this could've been easily fixed with proper engineering since it's not even related to that little fin you see on the body.
2) My felting has slowed down significantly while using this as opposed to just a needle on its own. No idea if this is just a learning curve thing or because of the pen. But it's noticeable.
Beyond that though, get this if you'd like to avoid making your hands into angry little claws from felting too much.
