I've bought several of these Pilot Plumix pens in order to transfer their nibs
into Pilot Preras. I prefer to write with a medium italic nib and the
combination of the Prera and this nib is a joy to write with. For some reason,
I have kept this black Plumix as is. I put in a CON-50 converter into the pen
and filled it with Iroshizuku Take-Sumi black and the pen and ink married into a
comfortable writing instrument. It always starts, writes smoothly and never
skips. Sometimes the nibs on the Plumix do need a little tuning, but this one
was perfect out of the box.
Surprising, the Plumix is not a bad little pen to write with. It is
light-weight, has a large ink window, and I like the smoky transparency of its
squid-like body. It does not have a clip, so you'll want to use this as a desk
pen only, however the cap does prevent the pen from rolling on your tabletop.
If you are looking for a starter pen to experience what an italic nib is all
about, this is a good first choice.
