Bought the pen, then read the review. Did have the initial inkflow problem, but
have experienced this before with steel nibs, so decided to 'run it in'. This
meant a couple of minutes trying to write on rough paper. No problems with
inkflow thereafter, and writes well.
However, decided that a converter was required because of the cost of Zebra
cartridges and no substitute cartridges that fitted. Found that a Parker (deluxe
version) converter did the job. The cost of these is well above the pen, but a
better option than cartridges.
Reasonable value for the price. The pen cost v cartridge cost equation doesn't
cut it though.

I am writing a review for a $3.50 pen!
My experience so far? Fine! The pen took the cartridge easily, ink found it's
way to the nib in short time, and I never saw any skips. I do not like the hard
push and pull required by the snap-on cap, and the finish on the clip and
plastic parts is third-rate.
It writes with a medium line, wet ink, and the lines are water-resistant.
I plan on having this pen around as a give-away, or as a FP for the car. Should
be easily re-fillable.
