The Rotring Surf is a fountain pen for under $9 and comes in four colors blue, salmon, yellow and green. The barrel is made of plastic and it feels and looks good. The colors are bright and nice. My only concern was the clip, I thought the clip would break quite fast but so far I had no returns or complaints. The most surprising fact is the nib. Furnished with a medium which draws more a fine line than a medium but is not too smooth, steady and looks perfect. Even the ink flow is perfect.
I was also surprised about the fact, that I thought this might be a good starter fountain pen for kids but I mostly sell them to customers who are fare away from this age.
However, a nice pen and a eyecatcher for und $9 which writes like a expensive pen. Jep ... that's my impression.
