This is my first fountain...

This is my first fountain pen, so take that as youmay, but I very much enjoy using this pen. It is amazing to write with. I literally don't want to stop. I used to journal a page or two, since starting with this I average around four. It was easy to use right out of the box, though I have had a few issues with ink leakage if I don't leave it right-side-up. Otherwise it has been super well behaved. I haven't used the converter yet, but can't wait.

My second style of FP....

My second style of FP. I have two Lamy Safaris (medium and extra fine), so this pen is a big change for me. I went through the included ink cartridge quickly, and bought a bottle of ink to use with the pressure plate converter. Unfortunately the ink I loaded into it was acrylic, and I was worried that I just ruined the pen.
But this pen is a snap to clean if you're willing to take it apart. I looked up a video on how to dismantle the nib and feed. Once apart I was able to clean out all of the bad ink, and now it is working as well as it did when I first got it. I think this is a great pen for an inexperienced user like me.
I also love the weight; it's not too heavy, but compared to the plastic Lamy Safari it feels hefty. Haven't felt fatigued using it, and it is mostly used for drawing/sketching. I might look for a different style of converter since I refill it often, but that's just my personal preference. The pressure plate style converter included works fine.

This is my first Pilot Fountain Pen. I've used the low end Kaweco and Lamy in the past and I like this one far better than those. This is a very solid feeling pen with a much more premium feel than the others mentioned above. The fine tip also feels a lot smoother than the Kaweco and Lamy pens which always felt a little scratchy. Love this pen and price.

I found out about this...

I found out about this line when only the medium (really semi-broad) nibs were available. Now I've added several fine-points to the group. I use fountain pens for most of my handwriting and these are great. I have several [much] more expensive pens that don't write as nicely as this one.

The only shortcoming I would point out is common to most fountain pens... If you take this on an airline you want it inside something inkproof like a plastic bag. Even driving across a wide range of elevation can give you enough air pressure change for awkward surprises.

The Metropolitan is never a dissapointment. I previously owned the plain black body, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the white tiger body soooo much!! It's absolutely exquisite and beautiful in person!
