Which is better, a broad nib, a fine nib or a medium nib?

Broad, Fine and Medium Nibs

When it comes to broad, fine and medium nibs for fountain pens, the one you choose will depend on the style of writing you need. Too many choices? Choose ballpoint pens instead. Personalized pens mean more than having your name engraved on the casing. Your pen should suit your lifestyle. --A fine nib may be better for people who learned to write and who regularly write using fine point pencils or who have experience with fountain pens. Extra fine is most useful for precision writing such as script or calligraphy, especially Japanese or Chinese. --If you have no experience with fine nibs, you may want to consider a medium or broad nib. Broad stroking nibs are usually used in document signing
