 Just received my first Noodlers Panther from ebay and here are my honest impressions.
 
- Firstly I thought that the pen looks cheaper than it costs. Sure, It's not expensive, but still there are much cheaper pens which look more presentable. 
- The clip is so soft and fragile that when I unscrewed the cap it changed it's angle a little.
- But the color is fun. 
- The piston filler is interesting and convenient to use.
- Semi-flexible nib for me happened to be absolutely useless, because when I tried to use its functions my handwriting became even worse than usual. In fact this is not the pen which made me write beautifully. Quite the opposite :)) But for sure I need to train my cursive.
- This nib also gets scratchy when underlining something or striking out. 
- On the other hand the nib feels very soft and pleasant when I just try to write something without care about the beauty of the letters.
- The ink flow is optimal - not too little, not too much.
- Another good point is that the ink doesn't dry in this pen when it's not used for few days.
- In general (if not pay attention to the fragile clip) the pen looks quite stable and trustworthy.
- Would I buy it again? Yes, to know what it.
- Will I buy another? Only if they make some new cute color or design.
- How many points I give this pen out of 10? 6.
 
Do you have this pen model or other Noodlers? What are your impressions?

This looks very similar to the Chelpark Maverick.

Look at FPN Hari's review of the same:http://www.fountainp...lpark-maverick/

 

IMO, the Maverick is a nice pen for 100 INR. The chelpark stock nib is stiff F.

This is the Noodler's Nib Creaper - pretty much their original pen design.  'Panther Pink' is the colour.  I have two of these, and find they write pretty well - reasonably smooth, and the nib is capable of flexing a fair way.  I prefer the wider barrel diameter of the Ahab or the Konrad, so my Nib Creapers don't get a lot of attention any more - but if you're looking for a smaller flex pen these are pretty good...

Jamerelle, thanks for explaining about the color and model. I thought Panther was a model :)

No, the color is not appalling - it's pink.
