Has anyone tried putting the FPR #6 nib on a Jinhao 450, 750 or 159? (does the 159 have the same nib size?)

Yes, I've tried it - but no, it's not a good fit.  The back/bottom ends of the Jinhao nibs fit more 'snugly' against the feed than the FPR nibs, which are a bit more 'flared out'.  A Jinhao nib will fit comfortably in a pen designed for a FPR #6 / #35 nib or similar - but I couldn't get an FPR nib to fit into the grip section of my Jinhao x750.  

 

Also, in answer to your other question: yes, the Jinhao 159 has the same size nib as the x450 and x750!

Thank you for the information. Darn I really like their nibs

Yeah, it's a shame - I find their #5.5 nibs are just a bit too wide to fit comfortably into a plastic 599 grip section, too.  You really have to cram them in, and I'm not prepared to do that...  Great nibs, though, especially for the price!

As it doesn't - try this.

A Jowo #6 fits nicely into a Jinhao 450, 750 and 159.

I am using these nibs: http://www.fpnibs.co...-rhodium.html#/

 

It is really an upgrade. You will realize the difference.

Which other Chinese pens do these FPR nibs #5.5 and #6 fit?
