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!

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.

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 constant hazard.)

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 online.

I first discovered this pen during a recent trip to Switzerland and it is absolutely outstanding. It is sooooooo smooth. I immediately bought several more from JetPens. The closest thing to a fountain pen - that isn't a fountain pen. For some reason, the Swiss version I got has a copper barrel - very attractive. Maybe you can get some of those. Also would love other colored inks - green and brown would be great.

This is a really neat pen and I don't even consider it a fountain pen. It's more of a "pen with a funky tip". I use it a lot in my hand lettering. I love the friction it gives me and the varied flow.
