My original question was whether anyone had suggestions as to whether the heft of a FP matters when re-learning cursive? I've been using a Waterman Carene, but am going to use one of my Pelikans at some point. I can ink them all, but prefer to have 2 or less going at any given time.
I do NOT like heavy pens. Since I like to write, I will sometimes write a LOT for a long period of time. A HEAVY pen makes my hand feel tired when I write for more than 1 page. So I hard cut any pen over 30 grams. My preferred weight is about 15 grams. I will use some pens unposted, to get the writing weight under 20 grams.
But some people like the heavier pens, claiming that it settles down in their hand better.
To each his own. As long as it feels comfortable in your hand.
Since you mention heft, I found that balance is just as or even more important for me. Example, the Lamy Safari, posted is within my acceptable weight range. BUT, posting the cap on the end of the pen, makes it feel tail heavy, to me. When a pen is tail heavy, I tend to grip it tighter and push down on the pen, both not good for my hand. So I use the Safari as well as my other Lamys (Vista, pur, and cp1) unposted.
