This may sound strange to some, however, I enjoy writing with my Eco 1.1 vs. my 580 mini 1.1. When I first purchased the 580 I had to send it back to TWSBI to 'fix' the nib. Upon its return, it still did not write as I would have expected for a stub nib. It sat in my pen case for close to a year before finally pulling it out and writing with it. However, the Eco wrote beautifully right out of its box. It is not as fancy in some minor respects as the 580 mini, but it is a true delight to write with. Chesterfield Antique Orchid, Noodler's Ottoman Rose & Iroshizuku Kon-Peki look beautiful in the pen!
