Hey all,

 

Just wondering if anyone can point out a seller that stocks replacement nibs in EF/F size for the Moonman M2.

 

I've read on some reviews that the stock 0.38 EF is not great and I am taking precautionary measures before receiving my pen.

Any suggestion would be much appreciated!

Just do a Feebay search - Fountain pen NIB

I think those are Medium nibs?

 

Actually I searched in Feebay for a while but only Medium / Stub shows up (specific with moonman keyword search). Probably I'm missing something.

 

Thanks though for the links

Yeah , EF , F , M  

Sizes tend to vary , and descriptions vary ..  

So I think they are 0.5 ..

 

 F - Can it be 0.38 / 0.5 

EF - Can it be 0.3 / 0.38 

 

As for Medium - ???  ( It might vary from 0.4? to 0.6 )  ...  So there might be some pot luck involved ...

I would suggest a 5 Pack of nibs for around $1.50 USD and just grab the one with the smallest Tip ..

 

 I did see some that were marked with a F  ...

You could just buy the cheapest Jinhao 992 with a F NIB ...

And pop the medium NIB on the 992 ..

 

 Jinhao 992 do tent to write reasonably well ..  Just took a quick look , and no F NIB's 

Some of the online sellers may sell them ( Feebay stores ) and they don't show up in searches .

Just did further search there and I think I got one here, silver color variant would be perfect though:

But I worry that it might be the same as the stock nib, although it has a F nib which might be smoother.

A) Wonder who Bobby is ? 

B) The finer the NIB generally the more scratchy it is ..  

 

 These are budget NIB's and as such you take your chances ...

That link is for apparently 2xEF and 2xF NIB's  ( 4 in total ) ..  

One hopes there is a decent NIB somewhere ..

Not sure who Bobby is, but I assume it will be the same seller and thus the same as stock nib?

 

Thanks for the input, I'll try the Jinhao 992 nibs for starters and see how it goes from there.

Thanks for the links, might consider buying the Jinhao pens themselves if their nib is an option but we'll see.

 

They even have the EF:
