So Recently I just bought a Monteverde Invincia Stealth (about 5 days ago)
And I've been having some really annoying problems with flow and skipping.
The pen just downright does not want to start up unless I shake or tap it, or twist the piston to push more ink through.
When it does get started up, after a few sentences it starts to skip. Then goes back to being completely dry, until I once again tap/twist/shake.
Just rinse and repeat, that's my problem.
I've flushed the pen several times with distilled water and once with a tiny bit of dish soap.
I've also tried several different inks, J-herbin, Noodlers, Monteverde, Lamy.
still the exact same problem, So I believe the issue lies with the pen itself.
I've sent in an email to Yafa to claim warranty.
I'm thinking is it just worth it to take it to a local fountain pen repair shop to see if they can fix the problem. or should I pay the $20 or so postage to send the pen in for warranty and wait another month for it to get back?
Is this a problem that's easily fixable (ie. Local repair shop) or should I play it safe if it is a more major problem (Send it in for Warranty).
Or option 3- Can I myself do anything about it? (not very keen on doing any DIY, rather leave it to the pros)
