I just received my new Pilot Prera in the mail. It has a medium nib. My Pilot Metropolitan has a fine nib. Noobie question - how best to swap? Also, will doing so lead to some unnecessary wear on materials (feed, etc.)?

Pull off the nib and feed straight out, plug it in the other pen. These Pilot pens are the easiest to swap. No noticeable wear and tear but if you swap often (every fill or so) the feed will not be as tight in a few years. Longer and it may become loose.

Thank you. I like that this can be done with pens so different in weight and feel.
