Good deal, good product
By Hugh K.
I had some minor concerns about purchasing a third-party replacement nibs for my Wacom stylus. After trying it out, however, I can say these work well. The build quality isn't as polished as the official Wacom nibs. Every nib had what I believe to be tiny mold "tab" or little fray towards the non-working end of the nib (not at the tip, but on the rod itself), which makes inserting it into the stylus a little more resistant than the Wacom nibs. The fray can be easily removed with an exact-o knife.
What I liked about this is that the nib is slightly longer than the Wacom version -- about 1 or 2mm longer. It's my personal preference, maybe, but I found the extra length made using the stylus more comfortable for drawing. Coming from the pen/pencil on paper, maybe I'm more used to holding my drawing implement further up, which you really don't want to do with the stylus, since you need more precise control.
The glide of the nib is smooth, and especially on the more slippery surface of the tablet cover I installed, the "pen" travel is effortless. Especially for the price I can't find any real faults to complain about.

Great Inexpensive Alternative to Wacom Nibs!
By Leslie Pierrot
I work as a graphics designer for a small local company, so I go through Wacom nibs like crazy. After spending quite a lot of money on official nibs, I decided to search for a less expensive alternative and I decided to give these a try.
Just WOW! They fit my Intuos CTH-490/B (Intuos Manga) and Intuos 4 pens perfectly! These nubs are also a little longer than the standard nibs, so they wear down less frequently without costing you pressure performance. I am incredibly happy with my purchase, and I will be buying more of these in the future!

It even comes in a little plastic container!
I bought these for my Wacom cause I'm running out of tips and Wacom's online store charges outrageous prices for their products. These were reasonably priced and has good reviews, and they're well deserved. My nibs arrived in a plastic container, which was slipped into a nicely decorated ziploc bag of sorts. The packaging was lovely and the nibs themselves work great. I'll definitely be buying more of these in the future!
