I honestly never used that specific pen. To my knowledge, most of the cheaper pilots share the same general nib, and this nib looks very similar to that of the Pilot Prera (Which I do own - about 6 of them). The Pilot nibs have been solid from every one I purchased, so I suspect this one will be just as solid. Pilot nibs write really like one is writing with a nail - there's no give, no line variation. I'd say this will write the same. Only til you get to the gold nibs do you start getting line variation.
That said, the price point of this pen is really cheap, and you're not out a whole lot. I've also heard good things about this specific pen. Pilot nibs seem to be more solid on QA in my experience, too. I've had some nibs that weren't great from the factory from other manufacturers, but not Pilot. Do note that at this price point, your nib isn't being checked by a real person. Machines generally check these pens, which isn't necessarily bad, but isn't great either. Really until you get to the mid 300-500 range, no nib you buy will be human tested.
The only thing cautioning on is that English and Japanese nibs differ in sizes. The differences are only til you get to Medium or so. But a Japanese Fine = Western Extra Fine. Japanese Medium is a little more broad than a Western fine. So it's worth gauging based off your existing pen. If you write small, get a Japanese Fine. If you write large, then aim for a Japanese Medium.
