Default Re: Need advice from some sages about Sages

I'd look harder at the Z-Axis. It's lighter than and softer at the tip than an XP. If you like the stroke of the SP, it would be an easier transition to the Z-Axis than the XP. Of course, you will have to speed your stroke up a tad.

As Mojo mentioned, take a look at the Winston BIIX. Try the BIIMX also, but I have a feeling that it may be too quick for your stroke.

The ZXL will feel lighter and a tad quicker than the SP which is due to the newer G5 graphite.
