the ink flow is real nice, but it takes a while to dry on some papers, so be careful of smudge and you may want to keep some tissue around to absorb any excess ink.

i really enjoy writing with the stabilo bionics. The ink doesn't come out totally solid like most liquid ink pens, and that's nice. There's real character in how the ink trails.

The handle is also very comfortable to hold, and the protruding dot on the barrel prevents the pen from rolling off uneven surfaces.

The pen also looks so damn good. The rubber body also feels so damn good.

I recommend.

i really like this pen. i'm going to pick up a few more.
i haven't had the leaking problems with this pen.

the ink applies relatively wet but dries real fast.
nice solid construction and good pocket clip.

i own one of the older models with the dark grey barrel and clear blue clip. and it has got to be one of my favorite models ever. the ink is incredibly smooth and dark; the grip is super comfortable to hold; and the pen's overall construction is freakin' fantastic. barrel's plastic is nice and thick, the clip is sturdy, and the grip is nice and firm, without the gooey feeling

i looove this pen.

these are pretty good, but the nibs aren't the best. the many other japanese brush pens on jetpens have better nibs than the sakura's. my sakura pigma brush pen's nib is beginning to fray, and i don't even press hard. i didn't have it for long either. it might have just been my pen, but this sums up my feelings towards it. aside from that, the ink is nice and the tip is good for those fine strokes/lines. there are finer, but this is pretty good.

the kaweco "Sport Classic"...
the kaweco "Sport Classic" line of pens is just too awesome for words. super compact and real smooth writing you can ask for anything more.

one thing i'm iffy about is the eyedropper conversion.. even with silicon, the pressure inside the barrel still pushes a considerable amount of ink to make a mess inside the cap and around the nib.
other than that, a fantastic pen!

great pen. diameter is great for my (x)large hands and zebra ink is always nice and smooth.
a few things i'd change:
1. grippier coating
2. maybe make it even wider in diameter
3. in addition to #2, i'd add a "stop" click
4. same materials in terms of construction as the LT3 series, with the brass construction and whatnot.

overall, this is a real nice pen to hold. on the downside, i put in some purple noodler's ink + converter and it doesn't flow nice at all. i need to pick me up some pilot ink!
also, i think i would much prefer the medium or bold nibs, because this fine is just too fine!

i really like the nib on these pelikan fountain pens. at first, the barrel didn't screw on so well, but after a little tweaking, i was able to hit a sweet spot and it felt real good. i also love this colorway. if pelikan could make the barrel a little thicker, it would be sooo nice!

and the sticker on the cap leaves residue.
though it can be removed, it's a bit tedious to remove.
