Im very happy with my Osprey pen. Its affordable and used the Zebra G bib as well. Ive used several brands that use this nib, but all of them seem to have flow issues. The feed is good on this pen and isnt as temperamental with inks like other brands. I highly recommend you check them out. The have an Instagram page (how I first found them). Osprey pens. Its worth it to at least check them out.

Interesting, I hadn't heard of this pen, I might have to grab one. Thanks for the heads-up!

Hi Taylor! Happy New Year! Just seen this thread and I'd like to recommend the Osprey Pens range. They do (a) a specially manufactured feed, section and converter which are designed to be used with the Zebra G nib, for about $18 (and you need to buy a pen for about another $30) and (B) their own in house manufactured stainless steel flex nib which uises the same feed, section and converter as the Zebra G.


Osprey recommend using Noodlers ink (for maximum flow, minimise railroading) and they also have a superb CSR programme where they support schools with fountain pens, for every sale they make.


Hope that's useful info!
