  1. I was wondering about super flex nibs so i both a pack of G nibs and tried it on my Jinhao x450 and x740 and i must say i was quite surprised with the results, i am attaching a scanned page and a picture of the pens, the feed did keep up, but if you write fast than i am sure the feed will have trouble. i must say that once installed it is very very hard to get it out. i have used black n red notebook paper, which for me is really really good, it is as good as rhodia.
  2. - The Conklin fountain pen purchased from an FPNer arrives and the nib exceeds expectations (super flex verging on painterly noodle, yippee). Very happy day! - The risky Bay purchase that didn't describe its dip nibs too well and could have been a good buy or a complete waste of money arrives on the doorstep and they are both Aikin Lamberts with undamaged original gold nibs and mother of pearl handles in marvellous condition. A very, very, good buy for the $$. - After a bit of careful fingernail tine alignment both dip nibs write beautifully and one turns out to be amazing! Snappily responsive with a line from fine (or less) to beyond 2.5mm and back again in the blink of an eye. I can do horizontal cut-offs! (I don't know what the technical name for this is, but I can draw complete rectangles with just the nib - horizontal start spreading the tines and horizontal finish snapping back together. So totally awesome.) - The first ink to be dipped into was Private Reserve Tanzanite and I. See. Sheen. for the first time ever. No squinting or hopeful imagination involved. LOL. 'Tis a great week.
