I'm wanting to buy a flex pen, mostly for fun and to try my hand at writing with it. After a lot of searching I'm leaning towards a Ranga 3C ebonite pen with an Kanwrite Ultra Flex nib. I'm in the process of inquiring from Ranga if their pen will fit a Kanwrite nib unit (screw-in nib and feed). Does is fit Bock, or would this be a custom modification? I've read about the virtues of ebonite, so what's why the Ranga intrigues me, plus they offer a nib unit vs. just the nib (I often hear nibs from India, especially the thick Kanwrite nibs, are hard to fit on most feeds). I've also ordered a Franklin-Chrisoph music nib (nib unit) that I was going to install on a Jinhao x750 pen and then hopefully on a PenBSS 323 pen when it arrives. However, I might consider ordering a second Ranga pen with a Jowo #6 nib unit fitting. This would surely fit the F-C music nib, correct? Has anyone done this? Good ink flow?
So, basically, I'm I headed in the right direction?
1) What's the best pen for a F-C music nib that's not a F-C pen? I've heard good success with PenBBS pens, but perhaps Ranga is better since the whole F-C nib unit can be installed vs. trying to fit the nib onto a PeBBS feed.
2) What's a good modern-day flex nib pen that's not too pricey? I've heard good things about the Kanwrite ultra flex steel nib. Which size - F or M or W? And then what body fits this nib, and writes well? FPN Himalaya V2 comes to mind, but then I saw Ranga. And if Ranga, which model?
