My first Platinum was the Preppy. I enjoyed the writing experience, but was not over thrilled with the appearance. This pen is the answer! The red is stunning and expensive looking. The balance of the pen is perfect for me. The colored the nib makes my pen extra special. The ink flow is consistent and smooth. This pen is a steal at the price!

beautiful body, very nice metallic red color; holds well and looks more expensive than it is.
Nib Swap: I found the PP fine nib on this too 'fine' for my tastes (made me realize I'm a medium point person!) and I was able to swap out a Medium Preppy nib for the Fine nib in the Plaisir. I have written a few lines and the nib from the Preppy is a little scratchy, but over time and with minor adjustments to make the nib 'wetter' I think it will be perfect.

This is my current go-to fountain pen. The ink doesn't dry out when capped, unlike my Preppy, although it does seem to dry quite quickly when I pause for a bit in my writing (e.g., if I'm reading something and taking notes). It write very smoothly and feels great in the hands. The fine nib has the right amount of give for my hand, and the barrel is smooth and fits comfortably in my hand. The satisfying click of the cap is a pleasant touch. Highly recommend this as an every-day pen.
