Recently I got the TWISBI 580 diamond IMG_2125.jpg this pen is a very good pen, the TWISBI flows over the paper like butter leaving one of the most smooth writing experiences i've ever had with a pen a close second behind my m200. IMG_2130.jpg For the overall writing experience, 9 out of 10.

The TWISBI'S box IMG_2113.jpg is the coolest one i've ever had a pen delivered in, it is almost like its own little display case. For appearance on arrival, 10 out of 10.

The TWISBI is a very modern, cool looking pen, as you can see the ink moving throughout the ink sac. I also LOVE the TWISBI symbol on the cap, but there is one major problem, the cap cannot be posted, personally that is a HUGE problem for me, so the pen itself is not all that greatly balanced.  for overall appearance 7 out of 10

For the cost of the pen, it is a great buy you can buy one new for only 50$, which is a very fair price for this pen,for cost, 9 out of 10.

The filling mechanism on this pen is great,IMG_2131.jpg piston fill, which works out to make it look much cooler with the ink just resting in the ink sac, for filling, 9 out of 10.

For the overall experience of the pen, 44 out of 50, a great grade for a great pen

TWSBI makes a great pen.   I just purchased a VAC 700 with a medium nib.   It is as smooth as silk, and it posts.   For my 580, I purchased a butter smooth CI nib ground from a broad nib from Pendelton Brown.   It's wonderfuI, much nicer than a 1.1 stub.  Pendelton Brown does great work.
