Not what I expected

the double reservoir can only be filled up as much as if it had only one.

Doesn't work for me

With a heavy hand, I've been pretty happy with the Speedball family for almost 40 years. I thought the reservoir on these would be a plus. But after trying several now, it's hard to get consistent strokes. The nibs have an odd curve to them. Think I'll go back to Speedball.

These stiff, sleek nibs are strong enough for my heavy hand. They are not suitable for slick papers, but work beautifully on a paper with some teeth.

Superb for controlled ink flow -- the nib doesn't flood the paper after dipping and maintains an even flow for many words. Really remarkable. The nibs are stiff, a quality I personally like. Even the 1 mm nib gives a nice variation in width as it curves around, even with heavy acrylic inks. The only weakness I find is that you have to work to clean them, especially if you are using waterproof inks.
