I just picked up a Platinum Preppy EF from Goulet Pens...true to the conversation, the Preppy EF has been a pleasant surprise for a $5 fountain pen. It is actually a smoother nib than the fine, handles ink fairly well, and is comfortable to hold. 

I plan to pick a couple up. They are great for editing purposes. I am currently inked with Diamine Oxblood and plan to experiment with "drier" inks to see how they handle them.

Wow! I had no idea that there was an EF Preppy! I love the Oxblood ink - there's something hypnotic about writing a whole page in it. Enjoy your Preppy

They arrived, after a delay while they hid under some construction leftovers under snow.

 

Why this mail delivery person placed the package at that side of the house, we'll never know; everyone else uses the door at the end of the driveway nearest the house.

 

The pens write very nicely, btw.

My 02 EF Preppy nibs have now found there way into Platinum Plasirs. This is because the caps kept cracking on the Preppies. Shame you just can't get the Plasir with the 02 to start with. Still I like the Aluminium Plasir and the colours look better in real life than in most online retailer photos.

I should do the same. All three of mine now have superglued caps.  :(

 

Such a shame as I can't fault them otherwise.

The lid on my first 02 Preppy cracked after a week of light use. It's a shame such its a great pen otherwise. I'll need to pick up more once everyone starts stocking them again.
