I tried the SP3 pen today and i was amazed how nice it felt in the hand. Its not as thin and it glides differently and the tip isn't as flimsy as on my own SP2 pen. Compared to the surface 2 pro pen its so much nicer to write with that pen, i don't paint so i can only relate to writing. I want a pen like that, i bought my SP2 2nd hand. Is it my pen that's worn out or is the tip supposed to be more flimsy and soft to push in?
