I agree with Jar. If it's a good quality nib, and you like writing with it. There's nothing else to talk about.
I have some steel nibs that I like better than my gold ones. It all depends on what you like.
Most steel nibs will be stiff good writers with little flex, to get more spring and line variation is the only reason to go to gold. The difference in price between top quality steel nib, and gold is huge, and I don't think you get all that much better a writer.
I just got an Edison collier with a medium steel nib. It wrote smooth as butta right out of the box. Love that pen.
I agree too. I have more steel or plated nibs than gold ones and as a hater of all things flex, perhaps that's why I have little desire to pay a lot of money for a gold nib. The best writing nibs I have are all steel ones.
