The nib is a decent-but-not-exceptional fine nib. Everything seems to fit together pretty well. My favorite things about the pen are the fairly "old fashioned" aspects of it. Screw on cap, plus a color scheme whereby the section matches the body, and the cap is the alternate color. Most other pens of this price point have cap and body of one color, with the section in the alternate. The plastic doesn't feel quite as nice as, say, a Lamy Safari, but this pen is cheaper and has fairly unique stylings for an entry-level.

Strictly speaking, I don't have this pen. I have a different Clear Candy, but this was the color I wanted and they were out of stock. And while I like it, I don't feel I need to buy a second one just to get the color combination I prefer.

Absolutely hated this. First, it's a little bit longer than a standard Parker refill, plus a little bit wider at the stem nearing the tip, so it wouldn't fit well in pens using Parker carts. Stem was really flexible, so it always seemed wobbly when writing. Not pleasant. It skipped like crazy, and with the nature of the ink (which needed to dry to become opaque), you couldn't quite see what you were writing for a decent chunk of time.

Skinny little pen, quite light. I haven't tried the the Platinum rollerball cartridge (didn't want to open it if I wasn't going to use it right away), but the pen does hold a Zebra Sarasa 0.7 gel refill perfectly. Pilot G2 0.7 and Waterman-style rollerball have metal tips too broad to fit. I don't have any finer G2 to check. Meanwhile, I'm quite happy with a nice, smooth holder for my Zebra Sarasa gels.

Decent enough little pen, but it does have a few flaws compared to it's competitors. For a cheap pen, it's not as cheap as a Preppy. At the same price point, the Pilot Plumix has a nicer nib. It's not as mini as a Kaweco Sport (although it's a good deal cheaper), but still not big enough for a converter. Add in that the body has vents at the back, which prevents it from being used as an eyedropper (not that the threads are tight enough anyhow). It isn't bad and I kinda like mine, but the more I think about it, it doesn't quite stack up against the competition.

Very dark ink. Decent shading between a standard purple and a purple-black. Great if you've got to be mostly professional in your ink choices, but can't live without purple.

Truly beautiful pencil, incredibly cool cap with the ratchet button clicking through when posted. Pentel absolutely NEEDS to make matching Kerry rollerball and fountain pens, I'd buy in a heartbeat. Only taking a point off since the only lead size is 0.5mm in this color, and I prefer 0.9mm or 2.0mm.
