At all wacom users


Buy yourself some new nibs now. I just read that wacom is going to change their design so they won´t last as long as we are used to. Someone said instead of 2-3 months they will only last 2-3 weeks. Not sure if it´s true. If you want more infos please google but I just ordered 5 more packs so I am good for the next years xD

Ich hab sicher noch 20 oder so und mit dem jetzigen Thinkpad X200T Tablet hab ich auch noch gemerkt das die Spitze nicht so stark verbraucht wird, weil ich wegen die Sensitivität nicht so stark aufdrücken muss. Hmm man sollte vielleicht auch lokal schauen auf Flohmärkten oder so, ich hab da letztes mal so ein Fünfer Pack für 1 Euro bekommen...gibts aber nur sehr selten.

Remember that lots of extra nibs are in the wacom pen holder. You just pull it apart and there they are

Lol yes but those were just the normal plastic ones. I usually use the felt ones :D

I have those and the ones that have a spring. I think I have a couple felt tips too, but I honed in on the grey spring ones. I love grey AND springs XD

I think I tested the springs once but not enough xD 
I also have some with a rubber tip.

Oh yeah, you can still use toothpicks if your current one is failing (mine is like a finger. Bad)

does it work lol? I fear that would kill the surface of the tablet xD

Toothpicks are just a little speck of wood and they are the delicate thing ^^ they could only scratch the tablet if they were made of metal, fiberglass, or something more durable that would hurt your teeth. Haha I keep a box of them next to the tablet because they don't last long.
(I wish I Had a 3d printer that could make more wacom tips in ABS plastic. The plastic that Legos are made of)

Guess that means I’ll be ordering at least another five packs on top of the two pack order placed yesterday. Then again I usually use mine for far longer than 2-3 months. Thanks for the heads up on that.
