I think the Zoom nib is quite different as it has an 'iridium' hard tip. I read that it too has multiple widths depending on angle, like the Superscript.

 

I would also love to try a Zoom nib some day. The Superscript is fun...but it does feel cheap, and it takes a little getting used to as well.

Yeah, so I guess it's the same idea but an expensive vs cheap option. Oh well, I was wanting to try a Sailor 1911 (large or M) anyway, this adds to the craving.

Nice review! I nearly bought a Superscript the other day, and probably will eventually. I think it would be good for drawing if not the best for writing.

 

Maybe the nib would benefit from a bit of smoothing...

It's meant to be my korean name written in Chinese characters. I never write chinese characters, so the penmanship of it in the eyes of true chinese writers would be terrible :lol: :doh:

 

The first character is "Lee" (surname).

second is "sung" ('seng' in chinese) meaning heavenly

third is "gook" ('gwo' in chinese) meaning kingdom or nation

Great review -- your writing with the Superscript looks about like mine. You were asking about the scratchiness of the 4-in-1 nibs. I have two different pens with this nib (Superscript and Profit Superscript), and both tend to be scratchy just as yours is. They are a little better if you don't press too hard, although it is not easy to both ease up on the pressure AND vary the angle while you write.

Thank you so much for this advice!

 

It made a huge difference :doh: I wrote gently, and then the glass started to appear half full :) (I was anxious before)

Hi,

 

It is a bit sharp and a bit scratchy at the point that you mention. :(

I had one of these before I joined FPN, and I pitched it because it was scratchy. (Now I would keep it to mess around with nib smoothing or some other frankensteinish experiment!)

Isn't sanity really a one-trick pony, anyway? I mean, all you get is one trick, rational thinking! But when you're good and crazy . . . ooh hoo hoo hoo! . . . the sky's the limit!

Hi,

 

We could with electrical arc welding and such, but I don't think it is worth it. :(

 

I don't do tipping currently, later maybe, but not now. :( If I asked Cross if I could borrow their machines, I wonder.

Sorry I missed this review when it was posted. But the blue ink you used is amazing! What ink is that?

Yep, I missed it too.

 

Thanks for the review Sam. You seem to have been busy buying lately??

 

It is interesting how you point out the potential use as a highlighter. Nice touch for the review.

:doh:

 

It's the result of Quink Washable Blue, and a bad photoshopping :lol: :roflmho:

 

The original doesn't look like that shade of blue at all, but I had to darken it on Photoshop to make it easier to read.

 

 

london, I was able to go on a bit of pen shopping after I graduated :lol:

I pointed out its potential as a highlighter, because the website I bought it off (pendemonium) said that they recommended Noodler's Firefly with the pen /:)
