It's "inadequate". Nice review! Love that huge pen, but not the baby-sized clip.

I have one of these pens.  I didn't like the eye dropper design.  It leaked no matter how much silicone grease I applied.  I had a problem with the flow.  It kept stopping after every six or seven words and then I had to wait for five to ten seconds before it would write again.  I disassembled the nib/feed unit and cleaned it, even made the ink channel in the feed unit bigger with sandpaper but it didn't help.  I finally took a nib/feed unit from a Sheaffer no-nonsense pen. It uses a converter.  I placed the unit in the barrel of the pen.  The barrel was a little too wide so I wrapped a couple of layers of Scotch tape around the threads of the feed to increase its diameter and it screwed right into the barrel.  Bottom Line:  Pen looks nice but doesn't work well.
