Oh man! I love threads like this! I'm working on a low cost option for terrific flex right now, and it would really help me out if you could take a few minutes to give me some insight on your flex pen thoughts. That's a link to a survey that will help me guide my parameters. I think you'll all like the results once I'm done.
Wow, that survey seriously covered everything I can imagine as regards to a potentially ideal modern flex pen. One thing you forgot to ask though, is whether people would prefer to pay extra for a 14k nib, or to save money and use a well set up steel nib like the one I modified. > Personally, I would be happy to pay the extra for gold, but an ideal pen would have an option for steel variants as well so that it could stay, as you mentioned, a low cost option. Good luck in your endeavors!
