I have a Symphony, second generation, with a firm nib. I'd like to get a more flexible nib. There's dozens of Skylines on eBay but very few Symphony's. Will a Skyline nib fit my Symphony? I'm open to other suggestions. Thanks.

It really depends on the model. We found 3 different sizes of nibs and feeds in our NOS Symphonies. The 713 and 913 took a small nib and feed, the 701 slightly larger, and the 917 larger still! I think the 917 size was close to the Skyline nib size, but Skyline nibs also vary.

Teri,

Thanks for the response. I e-mailed you at Peyton Street Pens to ask whether you had extra nibs for these pens. My Symphony is a model 703 according to Richard Binder's reference page. I don't know how its nib size and feed compare to other Symphony's. Hearing that there are 3 different sizes certainly complicates my search.

You probably need the middle sized nib, that's what fits the 701s. We don't have any spares .... All are headed for our Ranga 4cs model pens.

We do now have a few extra nibs for the Eversharp Symphony 701. Just manifold fine, though, no flex. Send me a PM if you are still needing one.
