Hello all, i wanted to try a flex nib, so i orderd some Zebra-G nibs and modified them to fit on my Jinhao x450. The writing experience was horrible, but the shading was awesome. Until now i thought extreme shading is just possible with M or B nibs, even with JoWo Stubs i was not happy with the shading. But this Zebra-G Nib taught me a better understanding. Now i know that the writing pressure can make a huge difference, and i CAN get shading on my prefered nib size EF! So I tried to dremel a standard Jinhao nib, but the writing experienc was horrible again, though it flexes xD. (looks like a Stealth Bomber or something ) Finally I orderd a standard #6 Flex Steel nib from FPR and was able to fit it perfectly with some bending and grinding. I dremeled again (EMF-Mod) and grinded the M-Nib to something finer. The writing experience is good now, I`m just not totally happy with my EF-Grind- I have to do more research on this. Getting this much shading feels like a new universe to me. I can now test all my old inks with a new experience and the full color spectrum!
