I feel these pens Flair Ink and cello are made in china by a single OEM manufacturer, I have earlier tried them to use them as ED but u get leakages from the section with time since the threading of the section is not according to a ED.Also the grip is too thick for an student.Try writing these for 15-20 pages as students do in exams ,it is not comfortable.

           The Grippy FP from reynolds is having an untipped nib hence its life is less.

Dear basterma,
they do not take parker or lamy catridges. But can refill catridges as these catridges are made very good. But feed gets clogged very easily making it nonusable.

 

Flair Jumbo cartridges are available in stores: pack of 3 for Rs.10

When using as an ED try the conversion similar to Platinum preppy, with an o-ring and some silicon grease. It holds up pretty well.

 

But for their price range, i would buy a 10 pack if i want to use a spare pen :)

The ink inside the cartridge supplied along with this pens are not a regular fountain pen water based ink, These cartridges hold ink which is oil based some how similar to roller balls ink, also the feed system is somhow similar to a sketchpen(straw type) just a nib is fiited to it giving a look of fountain pen .

I am using these pens as ED  (with a bit of silicone grease) for the last two years. Working excellent for me.

 

Also using  the new version of Flair Executive as ED now.

Its a very common FP. You should get it in any stationery shop

I put my savings to test

Lamy & Pilot FPs the Best

No more I even think of the rest

(Preference Fine and Extra Fine Nibs)

Pen is meant for writing - not for looking :-)

In Hyderabad you can get it at Kitsons, I got from there. The nib lacks feedback but definitely worth a try for Rs. 35 ($ 0.55) :). You can also get a pack of 4-5 for about Rs. 200 from ebay.in or snapdeal.com
