I've had my eye on a Conid for some time now and am finally ready to make the plunge with my yearly dose of Alaskan "mad money" (the yearly Permanent Fund Dividend). I vacillated between the Regular Bulkfiller and the Minimalistica for some time before settling on the demonstrator Minimalistica with the Delrin cap. Also getting the Ti fine and a steel medium nib.
The order page contains a note that standard shipping is now via DHL, whereas previously (I think) shipping could be regular post or DHL. I've not heard much of anything good about DHL especially with regards to exorbitant fees to release packages from customs. Despite their reputation, I haven't had problems with the USPS system on my various orders from the EU and requested that be the shipping method when I ordered. So I'm wondering how recent experiences have been with the shipping from Conid to the US, especially to out of the way places where DHL doesn't regularly deliver. Should I be concerned? Be prepared to open the bank account further?
Still, looking forward to my first Conid!
