Over the last several months I have had the opportunity to use three IR pen models in my classroom with my Wii interactive whiteboard. I have just finished a blog post in which I review all three and select my favorite.

Here are the pens that I reviewed:

1. The "MacGyver Pen" (homemade)
2. penteractive.us
3. The Groove from irpensonline.com

For the complete review, visit my blog: http://electriceducator.blogspot.com/2009/03/ir-pen-product-review.html

Interesting review, given your choosen surface a pressure sensitive IR-Pen would be problematic. It requires a hard surface.

To improve your Wiimote IWB experience (regardless of IR-Pen choice) I would suggest changing to a hard surface, you will find the calibration to be far more accurate, and maintain accuracy.
