It works, but its lack...

It works, but its lack of transparency means that it's difficult to know when
you've drawn up any ink at all, never mind enough to last for an entire letter.
Pilot SAYS that you can tell by the feel of the squeeze mechanism, but that's
just not true. It doesn't even hold all that much, when you do get it full. For
a desk pen, these may not be flaws of design, but they're fatal flaws for a
student like me who doesn't have all day to monkey around with refilling a
fountain pen, and needs to be assured of having enough ink to get through a day
without lugging ink bottles with me,
Unless this will be a desk pen and you have all the time in the world to refill,
if necessary, the Con-50 or 70 is the better choice for peace of mind in knowing
exactly how much ink you're getting, every time.
