When I saw that Pentel...

When I saw that Pentel had a very affordable fountain pen I was excited. Generally I love their roller balls and I thought this could be a good pen. So here's the silly thing, the first thing they do is include a full size ink cartridge (bonus!) that has two different ends.. oh. Which one am I supposed to use? I tried the parker compatible end but could not get the pen to pierce the opening, so I flipped it and tried the international end. That seemed to work.

However, once I got the ink flowing the pen had very nice bold lines that never skipped. It's much more of an American medium than a Japanese one. (feels > 1.0mm). The pen is light and the clear windows in the cap let you see the nib when the cap is on.

The reason I rated it so low however is the cap, it keeps slipping off the pen when it's posted (placed on the back of the pen during writing). It clicks into place just fine when closing the pen, but there's not enough friction between the barrel and the pen cap for it to stay on and during writing. After a few minutes it will "squirm" loose then just flop off. I personally find this annoying. It's a shame really because otherwise it's a nice writing pen for the money.
