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
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.
