Volito2

Not a question on images, it's about trying to find repacement nibs for my Wacom Volito2. I've tried everywhere I could think of (even Wacom site)but no joy, unless the standard nibs from Wacom fit all pens, but from what I can see they neeed to be for specific models. Any help will be appreciated....John

I don't know for certain, but their site states that the same nibs fit Intuos, Graphire, ArtPad and ArtZ pens, so it's probably a safe assumption that they'd also fit the Volito. They also have a Volito forum, so you might want to ask there.

Thanks Doug....I've just posted a message on that forum, but meanwhile I got a message from Wacom Europe that says there are no replacement nibs for the Volito pen! you need to buy a new pen!!!! and it's 20euros!!!!!! If this is so then there's no wonder they sell the tablet for £40, they make enough profit selling pens. In my humble oppinion that fact should have been made clear on the packaging for everyone to see before they buy the Volito2......Disgusted John.

This is the reply I got from Wacom on the Volito2 forum...."The Volito nibs are the same as our standard nibs for other pens. However, because of different pen construction, changing the nib can damage the pen, when the new nib is not inserted properly. This is not covered by warranty".......Seems a little strange to me that in an e-mail they told me the nibs cannot be changed, now they are telling me they can be, but if I do it's not warranty covered!!!!!
