I take it back what I said, they don't last long and aren't as good as the Deleter Maru pen which are the best in my opinion. Just stick to Zebra G-Pens and Deleter's Maru pen and forget the rest.

So far it's the best maru pen nib that I've used, doesn't catch on the paper as the other japanese nibs do and I can get a lot of control. So far so good, hope it's a good one.

Amazing pen, it's almost surreal how good it is, the lines are so easy to control, an excellent tool for your inking bag! Only downside I found is that the ink isn't as black as the Pitt pens (which aren't as dark as actual india ink) but not that bad really.

I've tried all the brands of the G-pen and I almost gave up on trying the Zebra brand because the other nibs were so awful but I'm glad I didn't because I would be missing on a truly great nib. It's very smooth and flexible, you can build lines or just do it one stroke if you skillful with a nib. The oil is a big issue due to the chrome finish, so be careful with the lighter or just use rubbing alcohol.

Best pen holder that I've tried, only wish would be that the rubber grip would be closer to the tip but it's not a big issue.

Nibs that I got were chrome but the ones listed are copper, I don't know, label on the nibs package seemed to be correct but they were just larger versions of the hard nib, really not that flexible at all.
Problem with chrome crow quill nibs is that they don't flex like a 102 and will just pierce the paper, really don't like these nibs.

These nibs when broken in are by far my favorite japanese nibs, really nice long tapered lines, very fun nib. Hope jetpens keeps carrying them in the future.

I found this nib to be completely useless, it's too hard, catches on paper and the ink flow isn't that great even after lighting the nib up. Chrome nibs aren't my thing, you might like it if you have a need for very fine lines with low ink flow like if you want to ink eyes or that sort of details.

The color is actually green, fits Hunt's 102 as well so if you hate those plastic holders you can use this one instead.

This is one of the few whiteouts that works, it's opaque, can be diluted in water to make it run in nibs and or brushes.
