Buy from the Wacom site, set of 3 tips is $4.95. The tip of my bamboo stylus split within a few weeks. Hopefully the replacement tip will last longer. Otherwise it's a great stylus

Original nib tore after a few months, so I ordered these replacements. Immediately the new one tore exactly like the original. So I've been using a nib with a tear about 1/2 way around near the base for about 3 weeks. I don't really want to put on a new one since I imagine it will happen again, so I'll wait for this one to crap out before I put on a new nib that will tear immediately too. Very disappointed.

Otherwise, it is what it says it is; replacement nibs for the Bamboo Stylus.

***UPDATE***
I've gone through all three nibs since my review. When I had to move on to the 2nd nib I decided to experiment and put a tiny bit of cotton snipped from the tip of a q-tip in the end. I found that this made it sturdier by not bending so much to the side when using it, thus creating less pressure on the metal lip. It also fixed that annoying click it made on the screen with every touch. The stylus also registered on the screen normally (see paragraph below). It works so much better but I had to replace the nib again maybe 6 months after that. I feel that I should not have to customize what should be an immediate use item.

I used my ipad as my primary "computer" for about a year until I bought a new mac laptop. As well as the usual surfing I also play games on it. My games aren't action packed- they're word games, card games... I found that the screen wasn't very sensitive and at times I had to push a bit harder for the stylus to be recognized versus my finger. That is an obvious clue that *I* am one of the culprits, but I expect a product like this to be able to withstand many different styles of use. Maybe I need a military grade nib. :)

A few weeks back this item was priced too high compared to the nibs replacement sold directly by Wacom. Now the item is correctly priced, more or less matching the price given by Wacom.

First, everyone LISTEN UP.
I am sick of hearing reviewers belly ache that their nibs do not fit and blaming Wacom or Amazon. The Bamboo Stylus Solo now has a "Gen2" model. This one has a cap, a designed "kink" in the clasp part of the cap and a different size nib, I believe it is 6mm whereas the first generation, without a cap and with no "kink" in the shirt clasp, is 8mm. Be sure you know which stylus YOU have before you buy nibs, just like buying a belt for your model of car or a bag for your model vacuum, we all have done this before. Simply put, if you buy the nib for the correct model you can forget all the other reviews that say the nibs do not fit right (assuming you bought genuine Wacom). If you still do not know go to their website.

That's out of the way, now the review of the actual nibs. This bundle comes with both soft and firm nibs. Your stylus comes with a soft nib so if you are happy with it just go find a pack of soft ones and forget the firm nibs. I bought the firm because I heard they are more prescise when writing or drawing and I am a Draw Something junkie.

I happen to have 2 of these styluses so I put one of each on them. We all know what the soft is like so no review needed there, but the firm is a different animal. It is not so hard you cannot push down on it with your finger but it IS firm. For general usage, typing and general usage like flipping pages or browsing the net (and I use these on my Kindle Fire HD) it is more prescise but you have to press a bit harder or give it a slight hit as opposed to a gentle push like the soft. If you are an "aggressive" person with electronics, like my husband, you will like this and will not eat up nibs like candy as he does with the soft.

This is price gouging plain and simple. As previously mentioned you can buy the nibs directly from Wacom for $4.95 however, they will charge you a ridiculous $5.00 to ship via USPS. Still $9.95 vs. $24.99 + $0.45 for shipping is totally absurd. The nib set 3-pack is often out of stock with Wacom and you can't back order so I suggest you simply check the site from time to time and buy a set before you have to. The link is here: [...] I'm still on the original nib and I use the stylus primarily for drawing. I've had my stylus for 5 months.

this item is sold as an add-on item. or it costs more than a replacement stylus. so u have to add it to a qualifying order of $25 or more. I would recommend the firm nibs. they last at least 3 times as long. u just need about 15-20 hrs. of use to break them in. these soft nibs last around 3-4 weeks for me. the last firm nib I used lasted almost 3 months.

I love the Bamboo Stylus but found after a few months that we needed the Nib replacements. The maker of this product sells them at a much lower cost but they were not in stock. Amazon has them available with exceptional delivery service. We appreciated being able to replace the nib so quickly.

These are the least durable tips you can possibly purchase for a stylus. That in and of itself is a shame, but what adds insult to injury is that the soft tips are absolutely useless for writing. I have the Bamboo stylus - another review forthcoming for that $30 con job - and the soft tips don't allow you to write on iPad apps like Penulimate or Notability without adjusting your natural pen grip to something completely unnatural. Basically, you have to hold the stylus straight up in your hand, so the nib is perpendicular to the screen. After even limited use the flimsy rubber tears at the base of the nib. Do not be confused by the picture, the walls of the nib are about the thickness of a piece of paper. The soft tips are only useful for tapping the screen to avoid finger prints. If that's all you need there are plenty of <$10 stylus options out there. I haven't tried the smaller, firm rubber tips for the stylus yet. I can only confirm that these soft stylus nibs are no different that the cheapest stylus nib sold. The folks at Wacom should take a time out from typing positive reviews for their products on Amazon and develop a quality nib to match the price they are charging. If you don't believe it, just take a <$10 gamble and order a cheap stylus and find out for yourself.
