My Ranga Bamboo regular with a titanium nib, Medium arrived today.

It writes beautifully with quite a wet line, though not as wet as my Visconti HomoSapiens.  I've grown to love wet lines.  :P
The nib is well tuned and is well aligned.

Overall, great value.  
This one does NOT post, although I don't think this is a requirement since the pen is well big enough to use without posting.
 
... and here are some size comparisons with pens that I use just fine without posting.

Here it is with my other Rango pen, a model 4c

I highly recommend this model and the nib.  I prefer it to my model 4c.  I found it to be surprisingly comfortable to write with despite the considerable change in calibre between the barrel and the nib/grip section.  The threads don't come in contact with my hand at all.  I don't plan to use it as an eyedropper although it seems like it can be used as one.

Thank you for this review, as I have ordered almost the same model, except with a fine nib, I am glad to read how happy you are with yours. I found my previous military green Bamboo with 1.1 Bock nib was both comfortable and wrote well, and I feel this black and yellow model does look like a blackened bamboo. As you say the Titanium nib is reputed to be rather wet, which is why I went for the fine nib, but of course this can be tweaked by ink choice. You are right though that using it as an eyedropper would make it even wetter. Thanks again maclink!

Just for completeness... (and to inflict my horrendous handwriting upon the world)
