  1) Cap has magnets in..., October 21, 2010
By dfbldwn - See all my reviews
1) Cap has magnets in it. Strong ones. They may be stronger than the magnets in earphones.

I'll be keeping this pen's cap a safe distance from camera memory cards, plug-in flashdrives, ipods and other electronic devices.

2) Nib writes smoother than butter or cream, with a line consistency so perfect that I sometimes find it eerie and unreal. Even writes upside down for an even finer line, with excellent smoothness and consistency. People hoping for nonzero "tooth" in their fountain pen nib are advised to look elsewhere.

3) Pilot _M_ nib is as fine as any Sheaffer or Parker fine point, if not finer. Pilot _EF_ nib that comes with the Penmanship pen, is too fine for me to use in normal writing, or even for marginal notes. Pilot _M_ edged nib that comes with the Plumix writes fine enough for calligraphy with an individual letter's body height ranging from 2.5mm to 3mm.

4) Did not give it 5 stars because, while I love Pilot cartridges and nibs, their nib feeds (the part underneath the metal nib) are prissy little beasts, particularly when using non-Pilot inks (e.g. Pelikan Fount India or any Noodler's). The feeds either don't flow at all, or blurp drops of ink out onto my paper. Tiny air bubbles can completely block ink flow thru the fool feed and I can only get rid of them by tapping the pen repeatedly with nib upright. I put Noodler's Black in the Pilot cartridges and have better luck when I put a drop of ink into the back of the nib, to sort of prime the nib with ink, before installing a filled cartridge.

I only recommend Pilot converters to people on whom I wish a life of aggravation and inconvenience.

  I bought a brown Prera..., April 7, 2010
By ben... - See all my reviews
I bought a brown Prera then followed by a white Prera.
The brown one shows smudge (from finger grease / perspiration) quite clearly and requires more frequent cleaning to clear the visible smudge prints. It also makes any dust that is on it, appear visible. The darker brown attracts more heat if the pen is left under the Sun, therefore causing more ink evaporation within the pen cap.
The white one does not show the smudge, though they are there. Any dust on the white surface is hardly noticeable. The white surface does not attract as much solar heat.
Verdict : I prefer the white Prera more than the brown one.

By voodoocat - See all my reviews
Its's official, with me, this pen f-ing rocks! A gorgeous, smooth writing, quality instrument. Definitely worth the money on this one. Medium nib on this lays down a line slightly more thin than a Lamy fine point. Cap posts nicely and over the nib end and caps with a beautiful snick sound. I pushed some Noodler's Bulletproof Black through it and wrote a four page letter to a pen pal, zero issues.
  Awesome pen, so smooth...., April 16, 2011
By dbajraktarevic - See all my reviews
Awesome pen, so smooth. Pilot has a winner here. I bought medium nib as that is similar to western Fine nib (actually it is similar to Lamy Al Star EF nib..but Lamy is known to produce thick lines same as Pelikan which really produces thick lines. So, Medium is really nice. I may get Fine nib also for writing in smaller notebooks.

Now if they would make this pen in Black matte finish (same as Pilot Vanishing point matte finish) that would be awesome.
