First ideas: I got mine in neon blue, a vibrant colour, like every other one exept black. It is small and thin and cheap, great as an entry level pen. Very annoying band and clip, whuch show fingerprints, colour can come off with polishing and is very thin.

Writing performance, It can post but you need to shove the cap really hard on or it will wobble. The nib I used was medium, which I belive is slightly broader than a cross and slightly finer than a LAMY. It is a little scratchy and a little dry for me, I tried an method that worked well on a Cross Dubai but didnt seem to work here, it was by sbrebrown, and is called how to wetten a nib in seconds, or something on the lines of that. You can get a tiny amount of flex but don't spring the nib ( I have first hand experience).

It uses cartridges only, standard international, not Sheaffer.

Summary A great pen for starters, but not very pliable.
