I love these kind of posts from the IPG (Internet Peanut Gallery), and I love deconstructing them, so here goes nothing. . .
NO, it is unlikely that you will see a new FLEX nib.
There is NOT sufficient demand for a manufacturer to invest the $$$$$$ in making a flex nib.
What a commercial blunder Bock must have made by introducing the Bock Titan! Too bad they didn't have you on board to advise them.
The other problem is, while there are MANY on FPN who want a new flex nib, almost no one is willing to PAY the cost of a newly manufactured flex nib. So then, why should a manufacturer make a flex nib. In discussions with someone, they determined that a newly manufactured flex nib would sell for $250+ EACH. . . . But that is to a pen manufacturer who would buy thousands of nibs.
I'm glad we have experts like "someone" to set us straight on things like this! Otherwise we'd never know that Bock are losing their collective shirt on those Titan nibs they've got selling retail for $90 each on the Goulet website.
If they can’t sell enough nibs, they loose money. And no one will make nibs to loose money.
Except Bock, apparently. I hope everyone on FPN is stocking up on Bock product in advance of their bankruptcy proceedings!
This reminds me of arguments about how bumblebees can't really fly because the physics just don't work out. And yet somehow the bees keep buzzing happily from flower to flower, ignorant of all rules they're breaking.
