i note take and write alot everyday, i use extrafine, the EF actually has subtle arabic/hebrew bevel ( axe shaped) and the F has regular conventional ball tip if you understand what i mean

 

i actaully tried a BB at the boutique i found it too ghastly and thick for me for everyday note taking however for signing off documents. Its an excellent tip. so either. pick EF or fattest one u want, not in the middle

'The Yo-Yo maneuver is very difficult to explain. It was first perfected by the well-known Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake. He also found it difficult to explain, being quite devoid of English.

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort. B*****d stole my kill.'

Second that. MB's EF is different from other brands' nibs. MB's F nib is very smooth because of the ball shaped tip. The tines of the EF nib have to be perfectly aligned to avoid skipping and/or scratchiness.

My collection: 149 EF/F/B/OBB, Collodi B/Twain F/Mann F, 146 M, Silver Barley F, M1000/M800 B'o'B/M800 Tortoise/Sahara/415 BT/215/205 Blue Demo, Optima Demo Red M/88 EF & Italic/Europa, Emotica, 2K/Safaris/Al-Stars/Vista, Edson DB/Carene BS, Pilot 845/823/742/743/Silvern/M90/Makies, Sailor Profit Realo M/KOP Makies/Profit Makies/Profit 21 Naginata MF&M/KOP/KOP Mosaiques/Sterling Silvers,Platinum #3776 Celluloids/Izumos/Wood pens/Sterling Silvers,YoL Grand Victorian, and more (I lost counting)

I owned a 144 and a 145 before and recently purchased a 146. It is a gorgeous pen. It is comfortable both capped and uncapped, but I found it more relaxing with the cap on.

It is really up to you. Fwiw I have three montblancs although none are 146 . ef,om and b. All are as smooth as silk .Personally I find the ef the smoothest and best to take notes. I have a light hand when writing.

I went to a boutique to try out the nibs. I tried the EF, F, & M. They all write great and very smooth. On a check signature on Che,k paper, I found the EF and the F very thin on the fast curls of a signature. The medium was perfect. But on certain papers the medium was very wide. The salesperson said the F maybe was abused and should be good on a new one. Should I get the F or the M?
