I absolutely did not get along with the FA nib on the Pilot Custom 912, and my frustration was so great that I ultimately ripped the nib out from the section with my fingers and then snapped the metal to destroy it. I'm reluctant to spend any more money on Pilot 'flex' nibs to see if my experience was unusual and an anomaly, although I did buy a Namiki Falcon SF nib (from Amazon, which eventually refunded my purchase in full for other reasons than 'performance') which is sorta OK, now that I have revised my expectations down and there's a lower bar. All the same, I'd be more prepared to give an Aurora 88 than a Pilot or a Namiki a chance with my next foray.
