This is a PSA - later this weekend I'll post a real review with pictures. DO NOT BUY THIS TURD. It wouldn't be worth it, were it to cost $2 and come from china. I am getting my thoughts up as soon as I can to hopefully save more people from buying this monstrosity.
I have been waiting for this pen eagerly for over a year, as it's been teased on Goulet's website for as long, with perpetual "next month" answers every time I queried its release date.
Well, it came out and I snatched one INSTANTLY. $40 is a small price to pay for a nice metal section and acrylic body, right?
THE WHOLE THING IS PLASTIC. CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP plastic. You can see and feel the flashing lines on every. single. surface. The chrome paint on the "cap band" and section is just AWFUL.
The cap unscrews with hands down the worst threads I have ever felt on any object in my entire life. They will absolutely not last. The Jinhao 992's plastic is light years beyond this monstrosity.
Capping and uncapping this thing is a genuinely. GENUINELY unpleasant experience.
The nib writes. It was a little scratchy but faded after a bit of use. Nothing special whatsoever.
I'm going to compare it to the acrylic moonman M2 this weekend with pictures and a video. I'll give you a sneak preview. It's not good.
