Thanks for all your feedback on how the M200 feels for you guys It's interesting to hear different views on the same pen!
You are confusing me just a a bit here: You suggst that you are comfortable writing with the Perera posted, and that you note that the M400 is close in size ... but then you go on to say you have 'doubts' about buying the 200. What is the problem? If they are similar in size and you are OK writing with one posted, where does the doubt come in?
Ah, its just like zuhandensein says:
Posting, for many users, is a solution of a problem rather than an ideal scenario. I understand that she probably does not want to buy a pen that she has to post in order to write comfortably with.
I am in that group of people also. I do not like posting my pens, and particularly those with caps that I have to screw/unscrew. I use my pens many times for writing brief notes, and having to go through all the process (unscrewing-posting-unposting-screwing) several times is sometimes a nuisance.
I usually don't mind posting but when I am taking quick notes, I tend not to. This happens a lot to me as a math student. Even the screw cap can be annoying during these times ;P The Prera is comfortable for me when posted, but I don't like the size of the pen. I don't know if it makes sense, but it doesn't excite me to write with it. I like my pens to either have some weight to them or to be a bit longer than the Prera. The Prera feels like a pocket pen or a child's pen, especially when unposted. Even when posted, it reminds me of holding a regular wooden pencil that I have reduced to half its size. It doesn't feel like a pen I would use to write with for hours. I find myself naturally trying to hold it more vertically and close to the nib to make it feel longer in my hand, I realized.
Before buying an expensive pen, I want to make sure that I would like the size and feel of it and that I have the options to write with it both posted and unposted!
Is it strange to have size/shape preferences for pens that don't necessarily have to do with whether or not it is comfortable in your hand?
