I have never had a Lamy before and decided to try this one because of the interesting color scheme. I ordered it with an extra nib (italic) to try out as I had heard people really like the interchangeability of Lamy nibs. I had never changed a nib before.
I think the pen is handsome but the plastic feels more like a toy than I expected; think Legos. It was easy to replace the EF nib with the replacement. All the pen parts fit snugly together. The pen started pretty easily.
Although I like the triangular grip, I found the barrel of the pen too wide for my taste, the cap even wider, and the clip on the cap a bit awkward. The pen's weight is well-balanced.
At this price point, I prefer the experience of writing with the Diplomat magnum. À chacun son goût!
