For choice the Vac 700R, I have three and they have been wonderful, never a skip or a hard start no matter how long they go between use. I have Medium nibs.

But for ease of use and cleaning I second the Go, by far the easiest pen to flush clean.

If you like posting, the only option are the mini pens (the mini and vac mini) and the GO. TWSBI pens SUCK at posting.
I actually kind of hate the 580 and can't put my finger on why.
The 700 is definitely the best pen if you can tolerate it not posting. The vac mini is probably my favorite overall.

The Eco posts. I like my Eco over the 580's I have.
The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old.

The Eco posts...

Hi FB, et al,

That had slipped my mind earlier,... yeah, so both the Eco and the Classic post... for those who are interested in postable pens. :)
