A very nice pen for a good price
Pros: writing is very smooth and consistent. If you're quick/delicate with your
strokes you can get some good line weights out of it and I've found that unlike
most water based pens once you let the ink settle in the page its actually quite
water resistant (lines only get a bit hairy)
The only real con is that the inks water based so it takes a bit to soak into
heavier papers so smudging can be a big issue if you're quick to grab an eraser
or slide your hand a lot, on lighter sketch papers (-50lb) it tends to want to
bleed through, but so far this hasn't occurred or been an issue to me personally
it just prevents me from using the other side of the page.
- good pen, good price
- lines can be tapered
- fun for sketching and note taking but would not recommend for serious archival
