I've had my Rapid Pro...
, February 27, 2012
I've had my Rapid Pro for about a month now and am, overall, quite pleased. I
was not overwhelmed by the ink the pen came with. I replaced it with a Parker
Gel refill and am much happier with the writing. The pen is a joy to write with.
Great weight. Lovely texture. Looks sharp. I have a few minor complaints. The
first is that the clicky on the top of the pen feels a bit loose. No real
problems with it yet, but it doesn't give the most confidence for long-term
durability. The second is that the Rapid Pro is just not as nice feeling a
writing implement as the Rotring 600 pencil. I miss the crisp lines and narrow
styling of 600. The Rapid Pro is just slightly larger in diameter and the
hexagonal shape is slightly rounded at the edge. Otherwise, I anticipate this
being a pen that I will use for years to come.
