Great pens and great nibs. Not much more to say, so go for it!

I have the white model and can recommend without regret.

Answer is YES. I have the white-silver model M205 in extra-fine. This is my best pen with a steel nib.

I have a green marbled M200, which I love, and a red M205 is on my to-buy list. Nuff said!

I have the Taupe 205 and love it. Just the right size for me and smooth writer.

I love my duo highlighter with BB nib. Stays with me all the time. Great for grad school!

That is a neat color - I hope that, at this point, you went ahead and bought the pen!

Yes, if you like the red. The m2xx series are terrific pens. I've had some nib issues with early 2000s models but earlier NOS models and more recent ones have been very good out of the box.
