I've seen the noodler's creaper pen for sale on goulet's and the standard piston fill for sale on isellpens. The piston fill on isellpens is cheaper, but they look like the same pen. Are these the same, or are they actually different models?

The same pen. If you look on the Goulet website at the description is says 'Also known as the Standard Flex Pen'. They just have different names on the websites.


The reason isellpens are selling them cheaper is they are trying to sell them all out.

Same pen. Note that the price on isellpens is the "sale price", otherwise it is the same as on Goulet Pens. I know that Todd (isellpens)sometimes works out deals where he has the lowest prices for some things. I once called Laban for a part and they told me to call Todd because he could sell it to me cheaper.

Some people say they march to a different drummer. Me? I hear bagpipes.

They are very nice little pens, BTW.  I now have two.  Think I got the first one (King Philip Purple demonstrator) from the Goulets last year.  Then just picked up a second one (Vulcan's Coral) from isellpens a couple of weeks ago, along with another Konrad (even though I had just gotten one a couple of weeks before that, when the closeout price was less than a regular priced Creaper, I figured it was too good a deal to pass up.  And I needed to get some ink anyway (a bottle of PR American Blue for my husband's niece to go with the pen set we got her as a HS graduation gift; and a bottle of Noodler's Navajo Turquoise for me because, well, it's such a yummy color.... :)).
