Hi guys,


I´m a recent owner of 2 pilot prera, one in a beautiful dark brown and one in clear black. I must say, the nib is wonderful for such a small pen! I really love the pen which as become my EDC.


Usually I´m a screw type pen but in the case of the prera I couldn´t resist....


Although I love the clicky sound when it closes, I´m a little concerned the snap cap mechanism will wear out very quickly.... I believe the inner cap secures the cap, but because it´s plastic I believe it will not last many years of daily use


This one is for those of you who have a prera for a long time: How well is the mechanism sustaining the daily open/close?



Many thansk!!!

My Prera is two years old and works like the first day.

I have not one pen who has problems with snap caps, some of them are 30 years old. Companies like Pilot build snap caps for a long time, so I guess they know what they are doing.

I have two, one of which has seen fairly heavy use for almost six years. They both snap closed just as well today as they did the day I got them.
