It's a beautiful, expressive writer. The nib is on the wetter side of norm, which perhaps is similar to that noted by FPGEEKS review of the pen (easily found on Google). Purchased from Bry, that's no surprise as he's also fond of the wet nibs! The nib is soft but I wouldn't go so far as to deliberately flex it. I learnt the hard way with another (expensive) pen!
I've read that about OMAS nibs. They are wet writers and the 18kt nibs tend to be soft and springy. My 360 (the redesigned version) has a very wet nib.
By the way, you have a great little collection. Especially your burgundy Optima!
