I'm so sad that this pen didn't work out. It is beautiful and wrote beautifully but I've had two pens within the past year and both failed radically. My first pen cracked after only minimal and light use. Jetpens replaced this pen and after a couple of months of light use of the replacement pen the nib and feed fell out of the pen. It is so frustrating that these issues occurred and that both problems created complete failures of the pens - not just cosmetic or reparable problems. It is truly disappointing. :(

My Prera -- maybe not specific Preras that others received -- is one of my three favorite FPs, the other two being vintage Pelikans. I've found it to be sturdy, problem-free, affordable, and a workhorse. FPs, especially the modestly priced ones, can be problematic. It's endemic to the species. So far, though, my Prera has turned in a flawless performance.

Nice nib, good flow, but resin body is too light and scratches way too easily at this price point.

For this price, I would expect a more resilient and weighty pen. I think it goes for twenty bucks or less in Japan.

That being said, I like writing with it and use it often with the cap posted. The fine nib is very fine but doesn't gouge paper.

I loved this pen when I had it. Pilot makes some extremely lovely pens with few exceptions. This pen wrote like a dream. It was closer to a fine point than a medium, but that's that way with all Asian pens. But this wrote so smooth. It competed with my other pens of higher price. I only had two problems with this pen. One, whenever I would post the cap, there would be scratch marks on the surface from the cap scraping away the paint of the pen. This was a real turn-off for me. If you don't post your cap, then this shouldn't be an issue. My second problem was the nib itself. One day I was cleaning out the pen and the whole thing fell apart. I mean, literally, the nib fell out of the body of the pen and left the feed behind! I got rid of the body but kept the nib to use with my dip pens. It comes in handy but I miss the pen itself. I wish only that Pilot improves the quality of its lower-end fountain pens in terms of build (writing quality seems to be spot on in most models). In the end, yes, I would still recommend this pen with just a word of caution to be gentle with it.

I just wanted to comment that I have this pen, and indeed the nib does come out when cleaning if you're not careful. However, I was able to simply slide it back in and continue using the pen with no problems whatsoever. The ink flow is undisturbed, and because of that, I assumed that the nib was meant to be removed and replaced.
