    I have a Pilot 912 with a PO nib. It's perfect and incredibly smooth for such an extra-extra fine nib.

    While nobody is supposed to be omniscient, being surprised that Pilot makes fountain pens on a fountain pen forum is a bit like asking on a car forum if it is true that Ford makes cars.

    To be fair, Staples and most other office supply stores in the USA will only offer ballpoints, rollerballs and gel pens from pilot, and even when you visit the Pilot website you'll have to search hard for them (because even the Pilot branded fountain pens are listed under “Namiki collection.”)

    Pilot makes pens with sensationally smooth nibs, even the cheapest Varsities (disposables for around $2 each when bought in bulk) have surprisingly good nibs. From there you can get a Pilot at pretty much any price you can imagine, but the Custom Heritage mentioned in this post costs around $220. To get acquinted with the brand you might want to start with a cheaper Metropolitan or Kakuno (less than $20) or perhaps a Prera (around $40) although they don't come with a PO nib.

    Pilot pens with a #15 nib do cost more than those with a #10.

    I don't see the point in choosing a #15 PO nib over a #10 PO. Both nibs are super rigid and get the same amount of ink to the point. If you want a tad larger nib, go with the #15, but the size doesn't change the writing experience.

    My only "posting" nib so far is in a 1960s Pilot E switch-filler, it's about as smooth as an extra fine nib can be and it's virtually feather proof due to the very dry line it lays down. At first I was concerned that it would be prone to skipping or drying out if left un-capped for a few minutes, but it seems to be pretty much immune to any of the issues you might expect from a dry writing EF nib!

    If Pilot made a PO in the 5 sized nibs I'd jump on one, but the 912, 742 and 743 are all just a bit bigger than I prefer.


    P.S.
    Pilot's description of the purpose behind the PO nib would tend to support your results with low quality paper, since they designed it to write on postcards that were made of soft, fibrous paper.

    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    If someone doesn't know about "Pilot" and says it in a pen forum, he doesn't know anything about PILOT.... It is random mistake.

    I think it is a good idea too to have another writing sample on Higher weight/ quality paper to see the result . It is what I think.
