-Nicely made barrel & cap.
-Smooth, almost 'extra-fine' fine nib; excellent ink flow.
-Nib and feed are 'force-fit' and easily removable for thorough cleaning or for
-Note that the nib & feed are identical to what are found on the Pilot
Penmanship and Plumix series of fountain pen.
-Nib and feed are also identical to what are found on the Pilot 78G fountain pen
(nib is gold-toned on the 78G).
-'Military-style' clip; pen sits low in the pocket.
-Cap snaps onto barrel securely.
-Cap posts well; with the cap posted, the pen is nicely balanced and a good size
for the average hand.
-Works well with the CON-20 aerometric converter, newly re-designed CON-50
piston converter (with sliding weight).
-Works well with Pilot proprietary cartridges.
-Preras are overpriced, in my opinion, in the $50 to $60 range. In Japan, this
pen is priced at around $30.
-Price aside, this is a nice, every day fountain pen that should provide
excellent service with careful use.
