Scratched my screen!!!
on April 25, 2014
I have purchased the bamboo original, solo, pocket and liked them so much that I thought I'd love this stylus. Contrary to how this is listed it uses the 1st generation tips, NOT the 2nd generation (which I only found in soft, not firm) which are larger not smaller like the solo.
The thing that kills this stylus is the little bit of metal that goes around the tip so as to help it stay on not only "taps" the screen with an audible noise but that it is SHARP and will scratch the screen. It did MY SCREEN! Now I have a huge, deep gash in the middle of the screen a cm long that I can feel with my fingernail. Lucikly I have a hard-candy case with a protective screen so that has the gash but that's still $50 to replace!!!
I took the little metal nib protector and filed it down with a metal sandpaper cloth so that it didn't grab at my skin when i ran my thumb over it. Now it's just like my other Bamboo stylus'.
You can remove the nib protector all together and the tip won't fall off and the ticking of it goes away. PLEASE FEEL FOR THIS BEFORE USING YOUR NEW STYLUS! DON'T BRAKE YOUR TABLET'S SCREEN! If you like Wacom's other styluses then this one is not for you!!! If you like to have to fix your new purchases so they won't damage your electronics and don't mind the stylus looking like trash without the damaging nib protector then this stylus is for you!
