The Noodler's Triple Tail offers a three-tined music nib on a body style that is quite familiar to a few already beloved models. Read on to learn more or check out Brian and Drew's video below!
The Triple Tail, named for a type of fish, sports a three-tined music nib and a cigar-shaped body style that is reminiscent of the Noodler's Ahab. The Triple Tail also has a similar slide piston filling mechanism like the Ahab. But the size and girth are closer to Noodler's other three-tined music nib pen, the Neponset. Like all other Noodler's Pens, the Triple Tail is designed to be disassembled without tools and is a true "tinkerer's pen" for those that like to adjust and fix pens themselves.
The Triple Tail is the first Noodler's pen to feature a threaded nib housing. Within this new housing, you will find a new design of the Music nib and feed as well. The new nib features a more streamlined look without the previous wings seen on the side of the nib. The feed appears to also be a better fit in the pen to help the pen have a more consistent flow. The Triple Tail is also fashioned from a new material that is free of "The Smell" that is noted with other Noodler's pens. The cotton butyrate mix material is both sturdy and odor-free for the most part.
The Triple Tail is not a standard #6 nib, so swap nibs at your own risk. The pen should be compatible with the nibs from the Neponset, Ahab, and Konrad. The feed is designed to keep up with the three-tined construction so we would not recommend trying to swap this nib onto other pens as it would be a tight fit and other feeds likely could not keep up with the flow demands of the music nib.
Upon launch, the Triple Tail is only available in Clear.
