Prelude is a great pen. I have few of them with nibs of different sizes, and I live all of them.

I like very much sheaffer prelude and parker 75 as for me those pens are the icons of the year 70/80's.
I have about 15 prelude, in different colors and with different nibs.
Is a real workhorse, very reliable and durable pen.
I prefer stil nibs than gold ones, and prelude have a very smooth and good nib. Maybe it writes a little thicker than size of nib.
I have one of them Inked with me quite offen, in my rotation.
