I was wondering if anyone has tried one of the new Goulet #6 nibs in a TWSBI Micarta. I am thinking of ordering a new 1.1 stub for my quite dry M nib on my Micarta. Anyone have any issues with this combination. 

 

Thanks all.

If you have the old style Micarta then there were several threads that showed the Jowo #6 (the ones the Goulets carry) does not fit your pen. I haven't heard anything about the new model.

I just did exactly that; purchased a #6 Goulet 1.1 stub nib and inserted it in the Micarta section.  Was my first time, so I had to learn to rotate the nib around in the section (sans feed) to find the groove/slot where it fits best.  sbrebrown has a couple youtube videos showing him changing the nib on a Micarta.

 

results; i thought it was lovely, although a bit skippy, which i would attribute to my inexperience.  At first it was wet like a firehose, then settled down a little.  I really liked it. Hard to explain that it was hard to start sometimes, then really wet.  Also maybe my inexperience with stub vs. obliques which work great for me.
