CH91 with SF, swapping nibs with a CH92 with M.

 

Figured it out - a counterclockwise twist on the nib+feed with a firm grip did the trick. Now I've got a flexy nib on the clear 92! The feed on the 92 seems to perform better as well, so this ended up being a win-win.

Yeah! But the fit was very tight. I was trying to pull it straight out and it wasn't working, the slight twist (counterclockwise so as not to loosen the reverse-threaded collar) helped get it moving.

I've been thinking about doing the same thing, but annoyingly Pilot sticks to their policy of only offering the most interesting nibs with the least interesting pen bodies and vice versa on the custom series - I'd still want to the use CH91 if I do this, but I'd much rather get the Tsukiyo blue 91 and of course the EF and SF nibs are only available on the plain black version.

I've never understood why Pilot insists on not offering interesting nibs on pens lik the CH92 or 823.

I enquired with Engeika about this and they managed to get me a CH92 with a SM nib ( I don't remember if I got charged extra or not). Pilot soft nibs are great.
