In previous threads on this topic it became clear that location had everything to do with whether pens were prone to drying out. If you live somewhere more humid or even just plain nice you probably wonder what all the fuss is about! Someone in Sydney, for example, has many advantages, climate for pens can be added to the list. After all, they sell millions of Lamys so there can't be much wrong with them. It's a location thing, here I would not recommend one as a starter pen. I'd give them a Plaisir instead.
Hot dry climates like mine in wheatbelt Western Australia are an obvious tough situation. I was surprised to learn that some places are cold and dry and have similar issues. Air-conditioning can can be drying too..Our air-con is the evaporative kind which should raise the humidity and it does, but not enough to keep dry-prone pens inked.
My trouble pens behave better in winter when the humidity is higher. Like right now: it is play time for many of the Naughty Drawer inhabitants! The Lamys are all inked and the 750x has had a fude nib installed as well - lots of fun. They do hard start some days, but at least there's still ink in their cartridge or converter. In summer it would be dust in there. I value my inks too highly to waste it.
I have other Pilot pens that are no trouble at all - metal Falcon, 92 and 74.
Other dry-resistant pens for me are: Platinum Plaisir, #3776, Carbon Desk Pen and Preppy. Wing Sung 308, 698 and 699. TWSBI Eco and 580. PenBBS 308, 309 and 323. Jinhao 992. Rotring Artpen. There will be others, these are just what I have and have a enough years experience with to trust. I think the green plastic Sailor fude de mannen is going to be good too, but I've only had it here for a few months so wouldn't promise - I am confident enough to have ordered another and a blue one...
These are just my experience. YMMV. I'm not throwing much away (except the Ahabs which were given away). I have pen management strategies to cope: the Naughty Drawer, safe inking practices and an ultrasonic cleaner (affectionately known here as the buzz-pot).
