Best Nib Size For Me

Even a dip test can be misleading. The paper for a dip test is fountain pen friendly.  Unless you plan to write exclusively on Clairfontane and Rhonda, your experience in real life could be different. The good thing about MB pens is that you can take them home, try for 6 weeks, and send for a free nib replacement. Even better thing with some other pens (e.g. Pelikan) is that nib can be replaced in store. Unfortunately, it is not free.


Fill your pens, not the landfill

And if you don't ask Rhonda first your life experience could be very short!

Let’s not speak for Rhonda.

Speaking for myself, I enjoy all nib sizes from EF TO BBB and that includes all the oblique variants. There are a few fantastic threads on this forum where writing experiences with various nibs are described in detail... with wonderful photography, too.

 

here is an example:

What works for me may not work for you, Rhonda, or the geezer down the road.  I believe the best way to find the right nib size (and even brand of nib) for how one writes is to try as many nibs as possible.  This is where low cost 'starter' pens come in and show their value. 

 

A word of caution if I may.  Do not discount how a pen is shaped and balances can influence its ergonomics and how it 'writes' as much as the nib it has.
