I got the Pilot Celemo and it really annoys me. The ink is running out in front of it (it's just dripping from the nib, not a wet ink flow, real drops of ink).
All my other Pilot pens work great.


sounds like an air leak somewhere. check using a cartridge.

Platinum had the edge in better nib feel. Ceremony nib is slightly, very slightly springy. But overall the platinum is better.

I gave my seremo away. it was alright. Honestly, not a bad way to dip your fingers into gold nibs at $35, but the platinum 3776 is just a tiny bit more money and so much more pen

Both flex the same - not a lot, the EF might go to a B but they are prone to springing a bit more than they should.

 

Go for a SF custom 74 or 92 or a SF 3776 if you want a little flex.
