Works great on coupons, and standard typing or printer paper. Heavy art paper would be too much for it, the blade is quite tiny.

I bought this to replace one chewed up by a dog. The plastic was sort of rubbery, so the pen did not splinter and injure the dog. It's a pretty, yet tough pen. I use it as an eyedropper pen, filled with Platinum Sepia.

The EF is more of an F. The previous pen, also an EF wrote medium.

It is a lovely emerald green. I loaded it with Noodler's Green Marine as an eyedropper, so even the clear body is deep green. I added a nickle clip to match the silver nub and cap jewel. It writes smoothly and reliably. As an eyedropper, it writes a long time. However, when the ink fill gets below one-third, it can get drippy, so watch out.

I also have a Kaweco Sport Classic demonstrator (all clear) as an eyedropper with Platinum Pigmented Sepia. It has been great through three refills.

this is an additional review to note that South Sea Blue is now Inspired Blue. I have run two full eyedropper loads of this ink through my Platinum Preppy with 03 nib ("fine"). It is the fastest, smoothest pen/ink combo that I have. it is great for high-speed note taking.

But beware, this is is not in the least water-resistant. Spill water on your writing and it will be gone!

Freaky on black
On a black background, it starts out looking weak and watery, but as it dries, it becomes lighter and more opaque, and quite readable. On a white background it looks pale green and stays pale green. The pictured cap color is pretty close to it in action.

It writes about 1.2 mm wide, so more like a medium Sharpie than a chisel point white board marked. It erases easily with a dry tissue.

I would recommend it for black, but not white background.

Quite a handy case. Right now I am hauling 11 pens, markers, skinny dry erase marker and pencils (all fat). Two more pens could fit in. The flip-over divider sort of snaps into the back so my pads of Post-Its can't escape. The color is a vivid orange, tending towards the red-orange and darker than appears on the screen. The fabric is a little shiny, and so handsome. A handle or loop would have been good, but with my big hands I can carry it easily.

Fantastic as an eyedropper
I did not try the included cartridge. Instead I converted it to an eyedropper and loaded it up with Dr. Ph. Martin;s Black Star HiCard.

I like this combo a lot better than the Sharpies provide at our office for Agile Story Card planning. It makes a bold but crisp line. No wear yet on the tip.

Instead of the included cartridge I use used a Platinum Carbon Pen Ink Cartridge. So far both are working great, even though the Carbon Ink is not recommended for the Preppy. Of all my Preppies (6) just one has cracked -- a Preppy Sign pen. Elsewhere a Preppy entusiast has recommended reinforcing the cap with Scotch Tape before it cracks. She said after it cracks, don't bother -- it won't work.

I put it in a new Platinum Preppy. It writes a smooth black line, but not as smooth as my other Preppies with plain Preppy ink. It feels like the ink itself has some texture. So far, no problems -- it starts right up even after a few days idle.

This is pretty good as a stylus for the Samsung Galaxy Note. While the Note comes with a stylus, the included stylus does not activate the touch buttons of the bottom of the screen -- a major fault, in my opinion. The Platinum works just as well as my fingers and far bett for precision poking.
I still carry a pocket Day-Timer and store this pen in its loop -- fits fine by length and width
The pen draws very fine -- about like my 00 (.35) Castell TG, but the line is somewhat grayish.
It is very smooth for a ball point and requires little pressure. It works great on the tiny Day-Timer lines and calendar boxes. The barrel is very skinny, so might not be good for a long session of writing.
Looks like it is on clearance here, which is a shame because it is great for my application.
