Wow - hard to believe this inexpensive pen writes almost identically to my $200+ Sailor Pro Gear. Great value - I may have to collect the entire set!

So cute and great to use!

I happen to love fountain pens that: are brightly colored; have sleek lines; uncomplicated design; and are inexpensive enough to feel like I'm not wasting money on "just a pen" (I have a fairly limited income). The Sailor Clear Candy series really fits my tastes well - I love the design element of the star and button on the cap, and of course this particular pen is a fantastic shade of flamingo pink.

The nib writes very nicely, I find, even on cheap paper. I don't have any trouble with it, at least, and the included ink cartridge started working as soon as I plugged it in without any problems. The nib is fine, but not quite as fine as my favorite .38mm Pilot G-2 (for when I just don't feel like bothering with a fp), though I'd say it is more fine than the .50mm G-2. But that could be differences in how hard I have to press with the gel pen vs. the easier writing of the fountain pen.

I love how lightweight the pen is thanks to being made from plastic. It looks good, too, in this metallic pink. I plan to get another Clear Candy pen in a different color, so we'll see how the plastic looks for a non-metallic. I wouldn't even call this "metallic", but I suppose it does resemble aluminium or something a bit. But for some reason, because of the weight, I keep forgetting that the cap screws on. I'm always trying to pull it off to no avail, then belatedly remembering to twist it.

Overall, I adore this pen and it's my new favorite. I only wish that there were an orange one, as I have just decided that I absolutely NEED a richly orange pen for my small collection, and the Clear Candy would be perfect.

This is a precise writing instrument hiding in a teenage girl's pen body. I've purchased a lot of affordable fountain pens, including the Ohto F-Spirit, Pilot Plaisir and Kaweco Sport, and the Sailor Clear Candy is not only one of the smoothest, most consistent writing, but it offers a true fine nib that allows you to write small or on thin paper without bleedthrough. Not sure if I actually see any metallic in the metallic pink body, but it's a cute color nonetheless and I like the extra large Sailor icon on the cap.

Writes nicely...the shell is a beautiful color...I think the converter may be leaking a little.

Just got this in the mail and it's a wonderful pen for writing in small spaces or working with numbers and graphs. The color of the body is gorgeous.

Because I'm not used to the screw cap, I find myself leaving it off between notes and that dries up the ink. Just make sure you at least have the cap over the nib when you're not using this.

The main reason why I'm not giving this pen 5 stars is that you have to press the ink cartridge in yourself. The Lamy Safari has a less messy design where you can just twist the body to punch in the cartridge.
