It is a little bit too thin, but its weight is heavy enough for a balanced writing.
Although it looks the same, its nib is much better than my Safari and my Al-Star. May be because of the PR ink inside it.
Filling System (8/10)
C/C or converter. Lamy converters are the best of all converters I used.
Cost and Value (7.5/10)
34 (UKPounds). Most of this cost goes to the body of the pen.
Appearance (capped 10/10 - uncapped 7/10)
The appearance of this pen is the main reason for me to get it. I wanted a pen that looks like a regular roller ball, or generally does not look like classic fountain pens.
During some occasions, I want to take a break from "Oh, what's this thing in your pocket". And it is good for this purpose.
What's very good about this pen, is its weight and texture. It's heavy enough and the matte black is really unique.
I enjoy holding it in my hands and moving my fingers over it.
The negative point is the nib section. Although the nib is very good while writing, the nib together with the section look very cheap.
That made me, while using this pen, try to look at the paper and the line being drawn, not at the nib or the section.
Wonderful pen when I hold it or put it in my shirt pocket. Wonderful writer. Cheap nib and section
