  1. Any suggestions for a very smooth ergonomic writer at a minimum feedback which can be comfortably used for 3-4 hours at stretch within 50$? (excluding preppy and plaisir).
  2. Hi everyone, Classes are over and I'm writing away on my thesis while job hunting. (I can hear the jealous sighs out there.) Unfortunately, long hours + humidity + tendonitis/nerve damage = unhappy hands. My hunt for the perfect and perfectly comfortable fountain pen is on! Having tried several pens over the last year, some were very good. None perfect. (Faber-Castell Loom - metal grip, Jinhao - heavy, Lamy - triangular grip is tiring, Kaweco - metal, TWSBI 580 - cheap feeling, hate the plastic, Noodlers - ditto. I've developed a list that I'm using to guide me. I'm seeking a fountain pen with: *A fat, non-metal grip: at least 10 mm, but preferably more. (I'm a small-boned woman with medium-sized hands.) *Sturdy material, preferably ebonite or hard plastic material. No metal grips. *A rounded grip section; it's hard to clutch the triangular shape for a long while. Minimal threads in the grip area. *free, juicy flow. (The Loom practically writes itself.) And here's the clincher: *Under $150 or so. (Student loans call.) I tried a Sailor 1911 in Hong Kong and am kicking myself for not getting it. Some people have suggested the Ranga 4 or 4C. What else? What I'm REALLY seeking is something I've discovered here on the forum: the long-out-of-production Tombow Egg 828 fp fountain pen. (see pic) I own several Tombow Egg rollerballs. After surgery on both arms I cannot tell you how much these pens helped me over the years. (When I learned they were going out of production, I bought four spares.) If anyone has fruitful suggestions as to where I can buy one of these, I will send you bottles of ink that I no longer want. (Noodler's Polar Blue, Red, Black Swan, etc.) Thanks all!
