StyloSuite XXXF X Wing Harpoon Nib

Posted in Fountain Pens

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know that I adore my StyloSuite nibs. In fact, I named the Spencerian nib my 2022 favorite nib and my all-time favorite.

A little bit ago, I got a new nib from Les at StyloSuite, a XXXF X-Wing Harpoon. I don’t know all of the differences between this nib and the previous X-Wing Harpoons, and I don’t want to ask Les to reveal his secret. I’m assuming it’s at least been narrowed further.

XXXF X Wing Harpon

I don’t consider this post a review; it’s a comparison.

I put both the XXXF X Wing Harpoon and the Spencerian into pens with Diamine Wistful Watermelon. You can see that the Spencerian nib is a bit finer, but is also a drier nib.

Comparing the StyloSuite XXXF X Wing Harpoon and the StyloSuite Spencerian by writing pangrams, testing flex, and different writing speeds.

The X Wing is a slightly stiffer nib; you need more pressure to get the flex. But, depending on what I’m writing, that’s beneficial. I don’t always want an easy flex.

It should be no surprise to anyone that I enjoy my new X Wing Harpoon. I can’t say that it’s better or worse than the Spencerian. It’s different, but still a fantastic nib.

Do you have a StyloSuite nib? If so, which one(s)? If not, are you interested in getting one or more? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
