I was just clicking on the website, and saw FPR now offers #5 and #6 nibs.

 

I wonder if anybody has any experience with their nibs, especially if the size are similar to the Jowo nibs and how good they write?

 

This would opens up a lot of options.

 

Thanks !

I have used both the no. 5.5 and no. 6 nibs, which both perform extremely well, and am currently testing the no. 6 nib in a flex experiment. The FPR no. 6 nibs are approximately the same size as the Jowo no. 6, but I have never attempted to place an FPR nib in a Jowo assembly.

They don't fit in Jowo units without modification.

I had their #6 fine nib.

The nib performed surprisingly well, very smooth.

For some reason it didn't fit quite well in my Jinhao x450, probably their curvature a little bit different, but if you're bold enough and do not afraid to use some force (which on my jinhao's I don't) then, armed with a rubber grip, you can do it.

You might have noticed I use past tense here. Well, after about a year of usage one nice morning the tipping ball fell of the nib (half the tipping ball, actually), so I don't have it anymore.

I don't think it's common and, frankly, for it's cost I could replace those once a year. I still might.

The FPR #5.5 is almost the same as the Creeper #2

The FPR #6 is almost the same as the Ahab #6

 

Nemosine, Jowo, FPR, Peyton Street ,Edison, Noodler's ( all #6) nibs can pretty much be moved around between pens.

 

Some of them may deform (oval out) the Jowo #6 nib holder a bit when it is not threaded into the section.

It's a judgement call.

I've been doing it with no problems.
