THE NEXT 5 SKYLINES ON THIS PAGE STARTED OUT WITH ALREADY FLEXIBLE NIBS; THOSE FLEXIBLE NIBS WERE HANDED OVER TO MIKE MASUYAMA (MIKE IT WORK) WHO CONVERTED THEM TO WET NOODLES AS FAR AS FLEXIBILITY GOES. 

Grading: Some are on the border of Medium and Broad while some are very Fine. Check their listings.

As to your flexibility preference, everyone writes at different angles of roll, pitch, and yaw and everone uses slightly different pressure when writing. So one person may be very pleased with a given nib and the person next to them may not be comfortable with the same pen/nib.

These nibs are delicate instruments and are thus very fragile; if you are not accustomed to using very flexible nibs, you should be warned that these are very easy to damage and cannot be returned if you damage the tines. You might want to try flexible pens out in person at a pen show to assure your satisfaction with your choice. But as can be seen in the writing samples above, it is quite possible to have a good match with a flexible pen before trying it out in person; the person that made those samples bought them off of this web site without trying them out first.
