A quick no brainer guide in choosing nib sizes in an overly complicated fountain pen world:
If you write small, go with an EF
For the normal writer, F is the most popular
If you tend to lean on a bigger font, M will be perfect
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B
Stub nibs are italic in writing style
Included in every ECO fountain pen is a quick reminder to wipe the ink off the nib and feeder right after you fill up the pen. This is an important step; only needed when you ink up/refill the pen.

WHEN REFILLING AND CHANGING NIB/FEEDER OF HIGH VOLUME CHAMBER FOUNTAIN PENS:
By removing and reinstalling the nib/feeder, air is allowed inside the barrel, causing an imbalanced pressure within. The result is ink being pushed out at a rapid rate. Therefore, after reinstalling the feeder/nib(make sure feeder/nib are seated properly at bottom of the feeder chamber), please remember to use a cloth/tissue to soak up all excess ink on the feeder (Do this also after refills). This will balance out the ink/air pressure inside the feeder and barrel, ensuring smooth operations
