Pilot 823 With Flex Mod


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been done to death before, but I did a search and couldn't bring anything up on it. Has anyone tried the custom 823 with the flex mod? I've seen them for sale on ebay and they tend to be the same price as the normal ones. The mod looks like it is the same as that recommended for the Noodler's Ahab, done with a dremel. If anyone has tried it I would appreciate hearing of your experience and possibly some writing samples if possible.

Can't answer your original question.


But in case you don't know, you can order an 823 with a FA nib....

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

I don't think that's the same thing -- the PIlot FA nibs have a hard time meeting the needs of the ink flow when writing Western script.

The flex mod, on the other hand, is supposed to be wet enough to keep up. (I haven't tried it myself, though.)
