do you think its bent?

The pen arrived yesterday. Here is my short review:
SIZE: You can see on pictures, this pen is not small, but its really beautiful :)
WEIGHT: Its really LIGHT.
NIB: Sometimes its smooth, sometimes not so smooth (not scratchy, maybe dry), sometimes it stops writing, (maybe because its new, and there is some oil or something inside?). Not as smooth as i expected from the reviews.
FLEX: It has as much flex as my old Centropen 5270 14k, mine Stipula usually does not skip or railroad when flexing.

I used it with Diamine Lavender and converter. Didnt try the eyedropper option.

I bought this model too a few months ago. (I made a review that you can find here http://www.fountainp...ul-modern-flex/ to compare the "bent" nib.)

Actually you can flex it far more than you did, but it might need some tuning (see comments).

Otherwise, it's a very nice pen. I hope your converter will last longer than mine.

Very nice pen. My lone Modello T needed about three days of "seasoning" before it settled down and decided to behave. I did the usual soapy water flush I do with all new pens and loaded it up with Visconti blue. It did what yours is doing. After half a convertor of not always pleasant writing it has become a favorite among the modern pens I own. Give it a chance and use it a lot for a few days in spite of its little tantrums. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the way it writes after a short break in period.

designerroots, I posted a response to the great review by olivier78860 above. I just got one of these pens about a month ago and have come to truly love its looks and performance.
