Anyone use any nibs other than Hunt? I have 102's and 107's but I don't really like the feel. I ordered some Esterbrook nibs a little while ago. Anyone have any experience with those? 354 and 355.

Is that the G nib? I think I have a couple of those. I didn't like them because they didn't hold ink very well and they were just too long for some reason. lol

That's the G nib indeed, but not all brands are the same. If you didn't like them, well, you didn't like them, but this brand, cleaned up properly before is used, holds ink just fine. It is long, though, it takes a bit to get used to I guess.
But anyway, the Zebra G pen are so flexible it behaves almost like a brush, you can get very thin and thick lines with them. I also use the School nib a lot, it's much ore rigid but it's easier to control.

The hunt quills, they're ok I guess, I got nothing against them but most Japanese nibs I tried, I like them better than the 102s.
