A.G. Spalding & Bros BRFT220 Fountain Pen - Medium Nib - Maple Wood - Beige Body - RAYMAY BRFT220 J
  It took months of research..., April 8, 2013
It took months of research to find a new daily writer - I finally settled on this one and I'm glad I did. I've been using it for a little over a month and can't put it down. The ink always starts flowing immediately (or with a little coaxing after it's been sitting open for awhile) and there is never any skipping. The wood body is a nice touch as well - it's never cold like some metallic bodied pens - and it adds a somewhat rustic look to the otherwise modern design. This has quickly replaced several others as my daily writer.

The one small complaint I've had, and have heard from other people, is that the cap is too heavy when it's posted. It's true, but it really hasn't been a problem, the cap just sits on the table while writing. This pen is weighted wonderfully and it fits so well in the hand without the cap, there's no need to post it.

On an ink level, it does come with a cartridge - and has room to carry a spare inside - but I never used it because I immediately switched to the Kaweco Standard Converter and use J. Herbin Inks - a personal preference, but one that has made this pen a joy to use.

It's a great buy and I recommend it to anyone.
