I bought the Pilot Plumix recently on a bit of a whim, hoping to swap out of the nib in my Metro for the italic version in the Plumix. Having cleaned my Metro over the weekend, I swapped the nibs, loaded the Metro (with the Plumix italic) with Kon-Peki and gave it a shot. This is my first time using any sort of italic nib, and I've found that the writing experience is just... unpleasant. The pen is skipping, hard starting, and worst of all it feels like writing on a chalkboard. I tried it for about five minute before I had to set it down. I feel kind of bummed about this, since the writing looks amazing, but I can't use the pen like this. I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar issue with the nib. I understand that italic nibs can be scratchy, but this seemed really bad. Any suggestions?
