When I got my new stylus, I wondered how long it could resist a daily use with paper. My previous one, died in about 5 days, but it was a cheap one, got for a few bucks on eBay.
Bamboo : 30 bucks a month
So I ordered a Bamboo stylus, from Wacom. 30€ (about 40$) for a piece of steel and conductive rubber was damn expensive, but this tool was said to be the best one, and supposed to last.
Well… My Bamboo stylus began to die today, after exactly one month of use… and only 8 sketches.
30 bucks and not a damn extra tip included in the stylus package. The rubber part is not completely dead, yet, but it’s a matter of hours now.
Out of stock
Moreover, finding a new one will be a pain : everyday, people visit “The Paper Lab”, after googling “bamboo stylus rubber tip replacement”, “rubber tips for bamboo stylus”, or even “i broke my stylus”. Now, I understand why. Wacom’s website is out of stock and spare available on eBay are sold from I-don’t-know-where, at least for 10$ the set of 3.
Considering all that, it’s definitely a shame. So go to hell, Wacom
