Hi! I'm a new member of the Fountain Pen Network! Nice to meet you all!
Just found out that the Sonnet my mom gave me is a First Generation one, a Laque Firedance. But for some reason I have to give extra pressure for it to write without skipping, unlike other pens I own, which write with their own weight. Could it be Baby's Bottom? If so, would they fix it for me at a Parker Store? Thanks and have a great day FPN!

Before anything else, I would give it a thorough cleaning.

And a thorough cleaning might require the nib unit to be removed from the section.
