This pen provides a quality nib for the price. However, it may not be as solidly
constructed as others in its price range. I was initially intrigued with the
Clear Candy when I saw that they made a clear-body version, hoping I could
convert it to an eyedropper. Unfortunately, the barrel is not airtight. While it
is possible to seal it, I’m just not sure I want to go through the trouble and
possibly ruin the pen.
The pen came with a Sailor cartridge and inked up quickly, though a little ink
seeped out of the feed. I am impressed with Sailor ink. With it, the Clear
Candy lays down a consistently even and dark line. Only time will tell about the
construction of the pen. It doesn’t look like it will take much abuse. For a
more durable pen that is an equally good writer, I recommend the Rotring Surf or
perhaps Sailor’s other entry-level pen, the HighAce Neo.
