This is my first fountain pen and I bought it with a converter so I can use my choice of inks. I have been very happy with this pen. Ink flow is very good while writing and still doesn't blob up when you pause in your writing for a sec without lifting the nib. Great pen for the price and no negatives so far.

UPDATE: I still really like the look and the feel of this pen, but after less then 1 month of use the finish on the body is discoloring. I am not sure if I have exposed it to anything that would cause this or not. Just thought that I would put it out there.

Lovely pen for the price. They cannot help but put their stamp of elegaantand retro-timeless design, practicality and beauty in even these lower priced options. Loved the nib after, I adjusted to it. However, it seemed to flow like a narrow bold rather than a medium (heavy flow or not). Usually the bolder the better for me, but in this instance, I hope they will extend the line to a fine or medium fine nib option. Even thought I prefer bold nibs, all around me have insisted that I start using a finer nib, because, let's face it, the narrower the nib, the less room for error and the slower at least I write, which makes my chicken scratching almost legible.

This is my first fountain pen and it has been working great. quite broad; about a 0.7mm feel to it; but the ink is nice and thick and comes smoothly. Feels great in the hand.

The only thing about this pen is that it comes with an empty cartridge inside; this cartridge is largely useless and just there as an extra placeholder. The pen is able to hold two cartridges, but they must be put into the pen facing the right direction or the wrong end could cause the cartridge to get stuck and not allow the second cartridge to fit properly. Gave me a bit of trouble when the empty cartridge got stuck in the barrel.

Bought this pen from Jetpens months ago and been working out great. Good feel! Great Writing Sensation. However i wonder if A.G. Spalding & Bros BRFT220 FP have any nib replacement? Accidentally hit the nib by the side of the table and have its head split.

Great Pen. Looks great and feel good in you hand. It's a bit temperamental (might feel a bit scratchy) about the angle you hold it, but once you get used to it it writes great. The medium sized nib is a bit too broad for my taste but it's fine for everyday writing. A bit top heavy when posted, but that may be because I got used to writing without the cap. Works great with the suggested converter. Definitely recommend it.

This is my first fountain pen, and it writes extremely smoothly and effortlessly. The maple wood body feels great to hold and it doesn't slip.

I like this pen a lot. Attractive, comfortable, solid, good flow and clear lines. The only weird thing I have noticed, and it may just be me, is that pretty regularly the nib gets unscrewed or loose from the body and I have to tighten it. I may just use it to much or hold it strange. Either way, that is a weird compulsive thing. It is a very nice looking pen and a good value, for sure. Solid metal and wood fountain pen.
