    Since it seems to happen fairly uniformly--check your "Tip Feel" settings under the "PEN" section in the Wacom Tablet options.

    Under that, in "Details", you can alter the pressure sensitivity curve for your pen. Hit "DEFAULT" and see if that helps things out. It seems that your pen isn't using the default 1:1 pressure-to-size/opacity setting for the pen.

    (If, when you go to "Details", you don't see the little graph looking like a straight 45-degree angle and instead see some weird curve, this might very well be the issue).

    I sure hope that this made sense. I'm working on a Mac and I don't know the Windows version of the Wacom software settings screen...

    Hm, not quite! That diagonal in "PROFILE" should track neatly from the bottom left corner to the top right. Maybe the fact that the line terminates before reaching that top right corner is the issue? When you click that "DEFAULT" button, does the top of the diagonal line scoot over to the far top right hand corner of the "PROFILE" box?

    i didnt know that the mod this thread : http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=154862

    was talking about which is sticked... is.. doing this... hmm.. maybe i did it wrong....

    look at this though..

    is there a HUGe difference their? o.o idk im confused

    EDIT: meaning yeah my settings are NOT the default... but i did that because the thread told me to and it works for pressure sensitivity really well.. helps nibware... however i dont think thats the issue since the difference with the stroke ends isnt that different... im going to try a stroke nib

    No, it should ideally track in an intuitive fashion when you're drawing.

    Does this happen on other software "brushes" you use, or just this specific one?

    Well several questions,

    What driver are you using?
    Did you experience this behavior doing the mod/ or with other drivers?
    Do you have the Tablet PC service Disabled if you're using Windows7 ?

    Is the tablet nib clean? No little splinters or anything?

    latest driver, but had this problem on all previous drivers

    with and with out mod i dont use the curve tool i do it manually. and i often set it to default and clear my tablet pref to test it with out any interference.

    yes i do have that disabled i used GPEDIT.msc in windows7 ultimate.

    EDIT: using many different nibs. i extract the nib and tap it to get anyt debris out.
    i have intuos4 black standard brand new nibs and intuos 3 nibs and stroke nibs.. stroke nibs kinda fix this but
    it should be fine with regular nibs.. im not the only one with this problem the wacom forums also have accounts of this

    using photoshop cs5 64bit

    my pc has 4gb RAM

    maybe i missed something in this wacom thread http://forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5366

    Do you get the same stroke error in another program?

    http://wistinga.online.fr/opencanvas/ see if the stroke error is present in this program for example.

    If not then it's something to do with the way the driver is communicating with PS.
