I LOVE this pen. ive gotten just about all the 'cheap' fountain pens on jetpens and this is my favorite by far. its not for everyone because its small but i love the way it writes.

Best 3 bucks you will ever spend on a pen.

it took me a week or so to warm up to it but i now can say i really like my Safari! I wasn't sure at first but once i got used to it and then got a converter full of ink into it i was happy. :)

The Platinum Preppys are the best pen for $3 you will ever buy*. If you have ever wanted to try out a fountain pen, the Preppy is a great way to do it. At that price you cant get hurt much if you don't like it.

* For a full-sized cheap pen. I actually prefer the Pilot Petit (sold here at jetpens) but its a small pen and my not be good for big hands

im not super happy with this pen...

it writes ok and is pretty smooth but the problem came when i attached the converter and filled it with ink; this pen is a pain to clean.

clearing the surface and back of the nib of ink is very difficult. By contrast, i filled my Lamy Safari the same night with the same brand but different color ink and it was WAY easier to clean.

Now this was my first time bottle filling any pen so im not ruling out that i did something wrong and would gladly take any feedback but if my Lamy is any indication, this pen is not nearly as easy to keep ink off the nib.

I love all the pens ive gotten from Jetpens! In fact im ordering another pen next week but i dont think it will be another Future.
