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
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.
