I had the same problem with my JNH 950. It is very wet and sometimes it starts skipping. Unfortunately, there are not specialists in my town to tune the nib. The pen is indeed very heavy (65 gr. !) and not easy to use.

Mine has a bit of a start-up issue that I was unable to correct with my first attempt at tuning the nib.  Mine is also a very wet writer. Many Jinhao pen nib/feeds are friction fit, but I couldn't remove them on this pen even with more than moderate pressure, so I abandoned that.  If I had been able to I would have backed off the feed from the nib tip a bit for slightly less ink flow.  Trying to tune a nib when on the feed is rather difficult, so I wasn't too surprised at the lack of results.  I got the pen for less than $10, so I'm not going to be too disappointed if I can't improve it. 

 

I'd like to know if anyone has sucessfully removed the nib/feed from the section and how.  Perhaps I was just too gentle or mine is particularly tightly inserted.  I think it's a very attractive pen and I certainly like it - especially at the price.

The feed is firmly pull inside and probably it needs a device to be removed. My opinion is that my J950 has a baby bottom, because it skips particularly on down strokes. The nib seems to be a broad one (which I dislike). I tried no longer to remove the baby bottom because meantime I got a couple of J650's and J149's so the J950 remained uninked. None of my other Chinese FP's skips and their nibs (F or M) write very smooth.
