Hello, i am thinking of getting the custom 74

I currently own a Cross century ii stainless steel M nib which lines are a bit thick for my tastes and an Parker Classic extra fine from 1986 that I love.

i've narrowed it down to the nibs in the title but i can't find any writing samples

anyone that could help me?

 

thank you in advance.

I'm late, but I hope this helps. I only have a SF and a SFM. Even though it might not seem apparent from the picture there's a huge difference between the two nibs, in terms of thickness, wetness and smoothness. Pardon the sloppy handwriting.

How did you manage to railroad the nib on the third "X"?

 

You must have been pressing pretty hard!

Correction: I railroaded BOTH nibs on the third "X", quite a feat.

Yeah, probably I was pressing down too much.
