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.

One of the better entry level pens I have, the nib has a solid build, with the sailor ink, it lays out a very solid line. Also really liked the clear body design.

It took between three and four minutes for ink to start flowing form the nib. It flows approximately a letter's worth of ink and then stops flowing. During the few seconds that ink is coming from the pen, it's difficult and scratchy to use. I tried several different kinds of paper with no success. The ink will not flow properly.

I would not recommend this pen to anyone. I don't know if it's the nib or the ink cartridge, but it's horrible. I realize it's an inexpensive fountain pen, but the Platinum Preppy pen (which is significantly cheaper) writes smoothly. I thought that the more expensive sailor pen (which has good reviews) would be better. Instead, it is a miserable pen to write with. I plan on checking what jetpens return policy is if I can't get it to work right soon.
