Smooth writing with great inkflow, but not fine enough a nib for my taste - my Sailor Inkbar still wins in that department.

A very elegant case and compact as well. With 7 of my pens it measures about 2 inches wide and 1.5 inches in thickness when rolled. I toss it in my purse and it takes up hardly any room. The only criticsm I have is I wish the pocket fabric would come up a bit higher so that all of my pens would actually clip to the fabric (you can see in the demo photos above that they don't). My Zebra Technoline (around 5 inches long) is the only one that does. So when I roll up the case the pens kind of jostle around a bit. But that won't stop me from loving this case and I plan to purchase more.

The only incompatibility I found with this pen is that it is uncomfortable for me to hold. My normal grip has the distance between my thumb and index finger and the nib tip measuring about 0.75 inches. The ergo grip of this pen increases that distance to more than 1 inch, which changes the dynamic of my writing (not for the better). I compensate by positioning my hand lower down at the very bottom of the ergo area where the plastic flanges out, which is not where my fingers are supposed to be, and my middle finger ends up being very sore after less than 5 minutes of writing. As a result, I won't be using it as often and for as long as I'd like to.

It's too bad because I really like the XF nib and inkflow, which I have had no issues with. Depending on where you like to position your fingers though, the ergo grip may or may not work for you.

P.S. Jet Pens' service was awesome!
