Please check out my Video Demonstration

  • Superflex -F-BBB; line variation (.31mm-2.04mm)
    • Superflex refers to the amount of pressure needed to achieve maximum line thickness
      • line variation refers to the distance the tines spread during flex
        • Important distinction: these two aspects (degree of flex and line variation) do not equal a 1 to 1 relationship, example:
          • one pen may have a wet noodle nib with a line variation from .45mm to 1.2mm,
          • another may have a semi-flex nib with a line variation from .18mm to 1.80mm.
