March 23, 2011
Obviously these fit some people's writing style, but for me, they're too broad and wet---so wet that I have trouble with feathering and bleed-through on some papers where drier pens work fine. As one other minor nit, the inkview window is almost useless; there's only a window on one side, and with no way for light to come through, you can hardly see anything (not that I would mind this if I liked the ink flow, but it's just one more thing). I will give them that they're fast and smooth and don't tend to skip or dry out, but for the same price I would recommend the Platinum Preppy instead.

I must say I am very pleased with my results. The ink is a excellent dark and rich black. I really enjoy writing with it whenever I get chance.
The line is approximately 0.7mm thick. I'm not a fan of thick lines (0.5mm is my friend!), but if you enjoy bold and disposable fountain pens, picking this up would be an excellent idea.
And let me tell you, these pens last a LONG time. I used one for seven to eight months. Don't judge the ink by the clear window on the side! Even if it looks empty, there's a good month left in the pen.

This is a great pen for the price. . . actually, better than some I've paid much more for. It writes a smooth and juicy line, does not skip. I'm very pleased with it.

Write very fast, very wet, very thick. My favorite pen. In a blind pen test I would pick these cheapo pens over pens 10x the cost. Plus you can actually refill them by using padded pliers to pull out the nib/body. And there's nothing to cry over if you lose them.

I really like this pen. It is the first fountain pen I have ever used. I really enjoy writing with it. I plan on buying another the next time I order something from Jetpens.

Very smooth and dark ink. It almost feels marker-like over the paper...not scratchy. It's a touch broader of a stroke than I'd like for regular writing, but that's my only beef with it.

I originally purchased this pen to add to my art supply repertoire. I ended up with a fine writing instrument. It's pretty beefy for a disposable pen, and the ink goes on thick and dark, much more like a felt tip pen than a fountain pen. It has a tendency to bleed, but that isn't a huge problem when you're writing.

This is supposed to be a first fountain pen for people. I'm a "new user" Found I had a lot of trouble getting it to right consistently even after googling and reading "how to write with a fountain pen" and how to hold a fountain pen.

But maybe this is a skill I would develop over time. But after 5 or 10 minutes I couldn't consistently write what I wanted to.

It did put out nice dark readable lines when I managed to use it.

About as much as one could ask for in a disposable fountain pen...elegant design IMO and always seems to turn heads. When it writes, it writes beautifully- however, I have found it to have some consistency issues (as with most fountain pens) that can be remedied only by holding it in a very particular way; there is lots of re-writing to get the ink to come out when you first start learning how to write with this one. But you get what you pay for. Despite this issue, I would definitely recommend.
