Very very smooth! This nib can take dry inks very well, and leaves a rich, bold
stroke on the page no matter what you're using. This will, however, bleed
through on cheaper papers due to the volume of ink you're putting down. Looks
the best with larger lettering, and tends to drown letters that are written
smaller (not so good for college-ruled paper, for example.)
I highly recommend this size for people that write large letters/lines. If you
write with a more average letter size, try the "fine" size. For small, spidery
letters, go with the extra-fine.
Butter smooth! The smoothness change compared to the original EF on my Safari
was remarkable. It's much wetter, though. While that makes it much smoother,
it also means it's more picky on some papers. Cheaper papers will feather more
Lamy's excellent design allows quick and easy swaps between multiple nibs. The
medium, however, is practically indistinguishable from the fine. Lays down a
smooth, wet line that's quick to dry (here, using Noodler's Heart of Darkness).
The black finish goes well with the Charcoal Lamy Safari.
Stealthy fun! I didn't enjoy my Lamy Vista with a fine nib. It came out too
scratchy and dry for my tastes. Oh what a joy to have this selection from
JetPens! I applied some scotch tape to the fine nib and yanked it clean. The
medium nib slid perfectly. I was having some issues working with the ink feed
but flushing it eventually fixed it. Loving the new medium nib!
