This is my 2nd Sailor pen, the first being a Sapporo with a 14k F nib. It's not fair to compare the two, but fair, shmair! The Sailor HighAce Neo writes a very, very fine line. It never, ever skips on me, and writes immediately upon start up. The balance is nice, and the sleek aluminum cap has a tight clip. The cap posts securely on both ends of the pen.

So why only four stars? The barrel is plastic, which in and of itself wouldn't be the issue if were sturdier plastic. The first HighAce Neo sent to me by JetPens arrived with a very broken barrel. The second arrived unscathed, but I don't expect it to survive being accidentally sat on or otherwise put under any pressure besides that exerted during writing.

I manged to repurpose my first HighAce Neo's nib and cap by finding an old Sheaffer aluminum barrel that fit the nib section with a little extra taping. The cap even posts securely on it. And the aluminum feels WONDERFUL. This is the barrel that Sailor should have gone with in the first place, even if it meant adding a few extra $$ to the price.

Anyway, if you like a very fine, reliable line and don't mind babying this pen a bit, you'll find it to be a good value.

I prefer a slim pen and this one is light and well-balanced. The nib is closer to extra-fine than fine, draws evenly, and doesn't pull or scratch. The plastic body feels a little cheap, particularly at the base, but the cap fits cleanly with a pleasing "chmok" sound as it snaps into place. I would give it four stars overall, but five stars given its price... and I bought a second one to keep at work!

Great pen, writes really nice and makes your handwriting look nice, but I can't speak for the quality yet. It seems to be okay, but I've only used it a few times.
