I actually bought both last week and am trying it out now. first impression indicates the UF version is 'mushy'.

Thank you for the response. Defi nitely interested in future "experience" with these nibs, as well as comments from other users (even if they are not nib-to-nib comparisons.

My Best!

I just put in a kanwrite flex nib in a penbbs pen. I'm really happy with the result. The nib is fine and precise and with some pressure the line has some expression. It's not a full flex nib but I think the effect and feeling provided is significant compared to run of the mill steel nibs by jowo or penbbs.

I also find the Kanwrite nibs to be better than the Noodlers and FPR ones and the "ease my flex" method works well with them
But for all I know they could be all buying their nibs from the same supplier...
