The Estie Loaner program was apparently moved to the PIF area.  There seems to be no activity.  In view of the relatively low cost of Esterbrooks generally, do you think this was a realistic program, given the costs of shipping pens back and forth?  I am guessing cost of material and postage would be four to five dollars each way. 

 

I had kept twenty or so pens only as potential loaners.  If nobody thinks this is viable, I'll just move them on.

OK, I suspected there was no interest in this program any more, and that confirms it.  Yes, I knew of the thread in the link, but wondered if any Esterbrook owners thought there might be any interest.  Because of rising postal costs and the fairly low price of most Esterbrooks, it makes more sense for interested persons to just buy one.
