Hello fellow fountain pen enthusiasts,

 

I am working on a new, inexpensive, high performance flex pen and I need some insight into what other people are interested in. If you love a good flex pen, and are interested in something new and exciting…

 

Please click on this link, and it will take you to a survey.

 

It should take about 10 minutes. 

 

 

Seven people who complete the survey will have an opportunity to test drive prototypes! 

 

Thank you for your time!

So, Presto, are you giving away that Franken-Pen you write so beautifully with? Even duct tape doesn't ruin your hand.

I filled out the survey as well. I believe the OP has his finger on the pulse of the fountain pen public (FPP). Everyone on this forum seems to be searching for a flex pen and they are either very cheap or very expensive or hard to find. No middle ground. Basic supply and demand. I think the OP see opportunity here. Good luck!

Good idea for a poll, and I agree that a new modern flex pen would be welcome in the market. Having never used one but always intrigued by them, it'd be great to have another option out there.

 

Best of luck with your endeavor.

ROFL! I spent so much time on that pen (including making ANOTHER cap and barrel for it) that I would just as soon give away one of my unborn children as that pen! The one you get will be much better!
