Otherwise, it is what it says it is; replacement nibs for the Bamboo Stylus.
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. :)
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.Read more ›
