The Con-20 seems to have large capacity than the Con-50, but you cannot check the ink level. Normally, if the pen is filled completely, squeezing the bar would cause ink to shoot out of the pen.
Wow that's true. I finally managed to empty the converter (nice jet of ink) and to fill it properly, evidently the rubber set up or I managed it properly. I used the Prera all day long, wrote many pages at work, took notes, left post-it messages, really no startup problems. In k is Pilot black ink (350 ml bottle also from Ujuku), good flow but a little light for my tastes, good anyway. A substantial amount was still there when I emptied the pen this evening. This small, plain pen is flawless. A little light, the 'M' nib is a F (and a fine one too) from all viewpoints but that's a given. Probably this pointy M nib is good for saving precious ink, and mileage with the Con-20 appears to be adequate.
Thank You Dillon for the information. I'm really happy with the Con-20 (a little awkward but tolerable). Probably I'll select this one for my future VP ... if this pen (like I suspect) cannot hold the Con-70.
