I bought Kaco Retro fountain pen. The nib is smooth and juicy, plastic is good quality and the pen is well made but:

The clip is a joke. At least on the pen I received. All you need to do is touch it and it slips about 30 degrees to the left. It is unusable.

If not for this flaw, this would be one of my favourite pens. It writes and feels like Parker 51, just better.

Does anyone else have this problem with the clip? If I got a lemon I would buy another one as it would be a good pen.

Mine is good. Maybe buy another — $11 isn't too bad for a full pen with converter!
