Instead, I wanted to do a quick post of my initial thoughts on this pen.
I just received (several days ago) a new Dleta Fusion 82, Brown, with an Extra Fine nib.
I flushed it first with cold water several times and then inked it up with Mont Blanc Toffee ink.
I then tested it on some HP Premuim Choice 32lb paper.
My initial reaction was this pen is way too scratchy, not the smooth glassy writer that everyone describes.
But I kept using it over the course of several days and all of a sudden it felt very very nice.
I also think (others who have more experience than I do, please please weigh in) that some of the "scratchy" feeling is due to this being an EF nib, although it does seem to flex a bit with pressure. I like this, not complaining.
I don't know if I just got accustom to the nib over time or if it actually "softened" up or if if it just needed to run through some ink.
Now that I have used it for several days of writing, I like it a lot. It produces one of the finest lines in my collection, and I typically write with F nibs.
As everyone else who has reviewed this pen has already said, the Brown color is great! Sometimes I just hold it up to a light to see the different color variations.
I also love the fact that they gave me a threaded cartridge converter.
Overall a very nice pen that I am going to keep. Not one of my best writers in terms of smoothness, but one of the best in terms of fine lines.
