    Noodler's Triple Tail

    Well that's a big pen - demonstrator for now. I don't like demonstrators but this pen would use up a lot of ink, and being able to see the ink level means less unscrewing the barrel to check and so mayber greater longevity...? Flex Quite stiff - stiffer than my Ahab, although that's something that can change quite quickly. On thing I found with Noodler's pens: give them time. Yet I can get decent line variation for sketching for example, simply because of the way I hold it makes "no pressure lines" finer, and "some pressure lines" ok. In the picture below, the hatching shows from reverse writing to good pressure. The oyster-like doodle on the write shows it requires no effort to thicken the line on downstrokes, when in "sketching position" (higher angle than writing angle, looser grip). Skipping / railroading Railroading - nothing worrying and of course it's brand new, we'll see what happens after a good night spent inked up. Skipping: some, when doing quick strokes held at "writing angle" with no pressure. None, if at a high angle, which I find ideal for loose sketching. None, at writing angle with normal writing. Again, that's probably my nib - and maybe not enough flushing. Nib I wanted the Triple Tail because in one of Nathan's videos it looked like it had a lot more flex than the Neponset, and also being the latest iteration of his music nib I thought it was taking the best bet. The nib is smooth, and writes a good medium line with normal pressure - very much like a few Jinhao nibs I have, maybe even a bit thinner. It looks like this nib is sensitive to angle - I guess it makes sense, with three tines that have to make contact with the paper. Conclusion I expected it to be unruly, hard to control but not at all and I can definitely see myself getting more comfortable - remember I've just had it, I simply couldn't help myself telling this forum.... The more I doodle with it, the more responsive it gets, and it's a rather unique pen. I hope this helped a little bit those who wonder about the Triple Tail... I'll be happy to give more info if I can - Sorry for the quality of the pictures - not much I can do given how much I hate taking pictures but hopefully it will give you an idea of what's going on...
