If this is the one I think it is I saw it, and its not fountain pen, but more like a felt tip.

The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

- Mark Twain in a Letter to George Bainton, 10/15/1888

The Parker Ingenuity is a revolutionary mode of pens that have the look of a fountain writing instrument with out the mess.

 

Because we all know how messy and impractical those darn fountain pens are!

 

 

Using Parkers' new 5th Mode refill, this pen provides an extremely smooth writing experience and brand new 5th Mode pen platform. The unique refill has several advantages including a fluid, regular ink flow, no leakage in high altitudes and adaptability to personal writing style with its soft, felt-tip writing feel.

 

I don't know about the rest of you, but comparing something to a felt-tip is not the way to appeal to me. Didn't we already go through the felt-tip craze in the early 1970s? I don't feel much urge to go there again.

Parker 5th Mode Refill : For Ingenuity Pens

The Parker Ingenuity is a revolutionary mode of pens that have the look of a fountain writing instrument with out the mess. Using Parkers' new 5th Mode refill, this pen provides an extremely smooth writing experience and brand new 5th Mode pen platform. The unique refill has several advantages including a fluid, regular ink flow, no leakage in high altitudes and adaptability to personal writing style with its soft, felt-tip writing feel.

 

And from their front page:

Parker 5th Ingenuity Pen introduces a revolutionary line of writing that will change the industry forever. The experience of the new 5th mode writing pen feels and looks like a fountain writing instrument while saving the mess of refilling inks.

 

I'm gonna guess it's a disposable refill leveraging the capillary technology of their old 61. The nib looks like a fountain pen but isn't, so … what is it? Inkjet? :roflmho:

I think you are right. I looked on Gold Spot's website and they have the refills for sale already.

I really like the super fine fiber tip refills (a la Waterman), but hate that big honker fiber tip for Montblanc. It sounds like it will be something somewhat similar - which would have coerced me go out and get one immediately... except for... that blasted metal section! UNGH! It does look kinda cool though

At $8 a refill- which includes the tip (nib?), I'm skeptical as to whether this is going to be a writing experience to cause me to retire my "messy" Parker "51". My sense is that this is Parker's attempt to come up with a high-end Pilot Varsity- a quasi-disposable fountain pen.

 

Another possibility is that Parker has decided to ressurect the old "Systemark" stylus tip model. Perhaps the folks at Newell/Rubbermaid came across the old Systemark papers when they were digging through the archives to resurrect the liquid lead recipe...

"5th mode"? Does that mean another film with Milla Jojovich prancing around in the altogether?

Was that "the fifth element"?

 

Yes.

um... I'd watch that..

 

oh wait pens, yea, uh, 5th mode? Can I write with it in my toes or something? What the H** is a writing 'mode' anyway? I use a pen and paper, I wasn't aware of the need for anything different. It's not like anyone reads my scribbles anyway.. :headsmack:

Call me cheap, but I'm curious enough to buy a refill, but not enough to buy the whole pen. That should answer some questions without breaking the piggy.

 

The last time I was curious about a "new" type of pen I sprung a couple of hundred for a Visconti refillable rollerball and hated it immediately. Hate that!

 

If I do get the refill next month, I'll let you all know what I find.

As far as I can tell, the target market for this product is anyone who has an irrational fear of fountain pens, yet wants to be seen writing with something that looks like a fountain pen.

 

Good luck with that. :rolleyes:
