I also like the replacement cushion for use without the toggle switch. One unanticipated advantage of removing the side switch is that nibs now wear evenly. With the side switch in place, there's only one way you can hold the stylus, which wears a flat spot on the nib in no time. With the no-slit cushion (switch removed) the nib is worn randomly / evenly -- no flat spot. BTW the switch is pretty easy to remove...you may need an eyeglass screwdriver or similar to help pry it gently out.
Minor con is the packaging -- once opened, it's unhandy for storage -- seems like the same amount of plastic could be redesigned for better storage.
I may never need / use half the stuff that came with this kit, but I still feel it was worth purchasing to be able to try out all the different nibs and cushion options to find out what I liked best. If I hadn't tried them all, I would have always wondered...
It came in the mail promptly in a lovely wacom package without the 3 nibs. In fact what they sent me was the product featured on Wacom's website which is more expensive. It clearly stated that it only came with one nib on the back of the package, which is not consistent with the picture or the listing here.
So I contacted the Amazon customer service representatives again, and they told me they were very sorry it wasn't right. They rushed me another one, and paid to have the other pack returned - all of this was really easy and at absolutely no cost to me.
When the new one arrived it was the exact same thing - and I was informed that THIS product was no longer available and they were looking into the problem. They gave me several options and I opted to keep the kit.
Here's the deal - The Customer Service at Amazon is awsome. I never have a problem with these guys and they're always there to help you, so if you have a problem or a question don't be afraid to speak up. If you're not comfortable calling them directly, there's a chat feature so you can talk to them as if you were texting your friends. They're all extremely nice and friendly. This is why if I have to buy something online I always go to Amazon first.
Second, though the product is the exact same thing as what you'll find at the wacom website ((5 of each special nib, and 1 of the basic black with a few extra bits to try out on your pen)) it is less expensive, and honestly the whole experience encouraged me to play around with my nibs. I had no idea what I was missing out on! Each of them have their own unique texture on the tablet and can really affect how the pen and tablet respond to each other. I suggest looking up how each of them functions online so you can better impliment them into your artistic process.
Another thing - check your nibs often. Do not underestimate the wear on these things. I had only been using a single nib for about 3 weeks before I'd worn the thing flat and a line was a visible ding on the cover of active surface area. ((It's not bad. It's not deep enough to affect my strokes. Just a light mark that can be seen if you move the light just so.)) So keep that in mind when you have to get supplies.
Honestly? The overall cost of a bundle of nibs isn't /that/ bad. Maybe the price of a cup of coffee at starbucks every other month or so for a set of 5 straight black (If you only use the straight black nibs, buy them from wacom - they're only $4.99 in comparison to the $9ish here) but if you use multiple types grab this bundle and save a few dollars since each of those are more expensive on their own than the black nibs are.
If you're having a problem with drag on your hand when you draw across the tablet surface, I suggest investing in a smudgeguard glove or making your own. It's inexpensive and dang near eliminates the problem.
Traditional artists spend hundreds of dollars on supplies for their crafts every month in comparison to the small price tag on our nibs. I bought into the fear when I first considered getting the intuos4, but ever since I have not once regretted my choice. It's a wonderful companion and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I hope my experience helps you make an informed decision. Good luck, and happy hunting!

The whole set has arrived.
It's a pity that there are no hole for the switch.
I can't use the thin sidebutton but I honestly rarely used it. I like it.Read more
