The last time I used...
, August 23, 2011
The last time I used these pens was in college over twenty five years ago. I
bought them in the college bookstore until they ran out of stock, and I haven't
seen them since. The plastic 180 degree nib takes a little getting used to, but
once you get the hang of it you will wish you had bought a box of the refills.
Like I said, I used them to take notes in college, and when they were gone,
there was no way to replace them. Until now. Thanks, JetPens!

, December 26, 2007
Being a vintage fountain pen fan, I scoffed at these the first time I saw them.
Now I want to smack myself in the forehead for waiting so long to try them. It's
light, it's responsive, and the ink is beautiful. And I'm no longer afraid to
use a fountain pen at work. (I do abstracting in a courthouse records room,
where pens rolling off the tilted work surfaces onto hard, tiled floors is a

I love the line I can get from this. It's definitely a felt tip marker, not a
fountain pen, but the beautiful fine, wet line I can get from the tip is exactly
what I want, and the control I can get with it, turning, pushing, or even just
light sketch strokes, is exactly what I want. I love just writing with it, but
find it exquisite for doing line work on drawings as well.
It doesn't have the flexibility of a finely tuned flex metal nib, but it's not
*supposed* to, as it's a felt pen. *laughs* You won't get the wide variation of
a copperplate nib, but I can get lovely variations in width by direction,
strength, and speed of stroke I can't get with a nib or other styles of pen. I
love this thing and I'm buying my third one.

, October 9, 2007
I love my Tradio, even though it's more of a marker pen than a fountain pen. I
can write with either hand, and even though it's not a true fountain pen, I like
it better in my right hand for some reason. Writing left-handed with fountain
pens is of course useless.
As a marker pen I find it better than extra fine Pilot Razor Points or Staedtler
Triplus Fineliners. It has a nice shape and without the cap it's pretty balanced
and lightweight. Highly recommended.

I first found these heavenly and addictive writing instruments in a Victoria, BC
bookshop. I bought two pens and two refills; I should have bought two dozen of
each. Thank you JetPens for finally making these wonderful pens available
