MB is mostly less saturated than PR ink. Many of us play with dilution for the more saturate inks, fun part of the hobby.
I like the 149 in that I post the cap, it is balanced, and hold the pen very loosely just below the cap and write 4 inches below the words.

And of course the 149 a Legend!
P.S. Welcome to the club and enjoy the journey, this won't be your last MB. Congrats!!
