for the horizon model, the nib is ok, but the grip section is flimsy made. it slid off when i tried to insert a converter! it can be put back in place, but there really is nothing holding it there, so another push on the cart/converter can dislodge it again. this problem made me use carts instead of a converter since ink can seep inside the the space between the grip and the section and make the pen "leak".
i'd like to know what your experiences are with these models (the freewheels gave me no problem at all). it seems to me that waterman did not really put enough effort to make these pens as good writing instruments and they were more like "collectibles" (like fast food toys and tumblers promoting a new movie).

Update: I just noticed that the HD Combustion nib is quite similar in design to my Waterman Ici Et La. My Ici Et La uses the GROOVED type of converter, and when I use that type, the "fit" is so tight it is very hard to remove it from the nib section. So---It would not surprise me that the grooved type is the best type for the Combustion.
