Can you please tell me what size nibs the Ranga pens from the recent group buy take?  I want to order some flex nibs, but I don't know which size to order.  Also, if it makes a difference, I think I ordered my Ranga pen with a Schmidt fine screw on nib.  I don't know if I need something else to be able to use flex nibs on the pen I ordered.

 

If it won't work, do you know what other brands/models of pens these nibs work for?  I have a whole lotta cheap Chinese pens (Jinhaos, Heroes, No-names, etc.), several Esterbrooks and Scheaffers, a couple of Lamys, 3 Watermans, 3 Parkers, a Yard O Led, a Pilot or 2, a couple of cheap/free Noodler's, and some custom pens.  Would the nibs work on any of those?

Ranga Group Buy had two options ... one was 35 mm nib and 40 mm... however I beleive you opted for 35 mm #6 Schmidt Nib....

 

Flex nibs on those pen will 35mm only...

35mm nib is equivalent of #6 nibs.. so they will fit jinhaos... alomost most of the Indian Pens... Noodlers also use the same size of nibs...

Question for the people who have experience with the FLEX nibs.

 

How Flexy are they?.. Are they better/worse or the same as the Noodlers Flex nibs ?

 

 

Thanks,

They are slightly flexier than the Noodler's nibs. My main issue with them was how to get them far enough into the section that the cap would screw on without interfering with the nib. (on Click bamboo model pens). The answer was to persevere and push them far enough in until you could feel the nib no longer touched the inside of the cap when closing the pen.
