I’ve been debating whether to get a Pilot Custom 743 with the FA nib, preparing to swap the business end to a Pilot Custom 823 in the future. However, there are other options for those interested in an FA nib. This page gives a good side-by-side comparison of the Pilot Custom pens for anyone looking for extra information.
The debate is over. I have no regrets about buying a 742 FA – in case you’re thinking about it. Maybe someday, I’ll do a side-by-side comparison with my Falcon and Justus 95 and post it here.
