, November 5, 2010
The fineness of the nib is just about perfect for me; my non-fountain pens are
usually Uniball Micro 0.5mm, and this writes just about exactly like that, only
smoother. (I find my Lamy EF nib to be wonderful, but a bit too broad for
anything but prose; it's too broad for math or notes.) The tines seems pretty
well aligned and I haven't felt much scratchiness, despite the fineness of the
nib. I have Noodler's #41 Brown in it, and so far so good.
The pen does feel incredibly light. Posting the cap, which is the only
reasonably hefty-feeling part of this pen, leaves it reasonably well balanced.

I'm a huge fan of my Sailor Clear Candy and wanted to try this Sailor which is
at the same price point. It arrived without cartridge or converter, so you may
need to purchase one or both along with this pen.
It's a slim pen, thinner than most of mine small collection. I like the silver
and red together, but ultimately this pen just doesn't look like it is worth the
price. The red shaft in particular looks very plasticy and cheap. The feed and
nib are attractive however.
As for the nib, Sailor makes some great ones and this pen doesn't disappoint.
Despite the thin line (equivalent to a Euro EF nib) it's smooth and fun to write
with. I loaded it with a converter filled with Diamine Red Dragon and it lays
down a nice even flow.
However the Clear Candy provides just as good of a nib is thicker and more
comfortable to hold. You would certainly be use this in more situations,
however, as the HighAce Neo has a more conservative appeal than the fun and
light-hearted Clear Candy.
So unless you really hate the looks of the Clear Candy, I would go with a
different choice than the HighAce Neo.

A truly fine line! This is a spectacular nib for drawing, loaded with a Sailor
Nano ink cartridge. Runs tiny circles around my Lamy Vista EF...
The only faults I can find are that the pen feels fairly cheap overall for the
price (seems more like it should be about $8-10, really), with slightly
misaligned cosmetic trim on the cap that doesn't seem to affect performance or
comfort in any way. The grip area can become slippery if your hand environment
is on the moist side, but as the pen is so light, it's not likely to tumble out
of your grip. Lastly, the red plastic is fairly dull compared to the photo, like
Evil-Superman's cape in Superman III.
A little pricey at first, but the twinge evaporates the more you play with that
