Is the Twsbi Go comfortable to write with for a long time?

The Go seems like a nice size and I like that it has a long section with no threads. However I wonder if the tapering of the section combined with the fatness of the cylindrical barrel can cause discomfort? 

 

Thanks! 

 

(I'm not a huge fan of the eco because of price and fragility)

for me, no.

 

To give you an idea of what I like, I like:

- Sheaffer Snorkels

- Parker "51"s

- Parker Vacumatics

- Sheaffer Balances

- Twsbi Ecos

 

but the GO just feels... too big, awkward, weird... kinda like holding a baseball bat... I just don't like the way this pen feels in my hand.

 

my wife on the other hand likes Ecos, Safaris, Kaweco Sports and she also likes the TWSBI Go.

 

hope this helps

 

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

Thanks for your response; that helps! I appreciate that you put the other pens that you tend to like. I am not a huge fan of the P51 for example because I find it too thin and long, so hopefully the TWSBI Go can satisfy both my curiosity and desire for comfort.

you're welcome. glad I could help

 

for me the "51" and snorkels fall right into the sweet spot between too thick and too thin

 

one note: the plastic from the go is softer and feels cheaper than the plastic in an Eco.

 

 and both the section and the barrel of the go are significantly thicker than on an Eco

i had intended to use the go to test inks thinking it would be easy to clean.

I like many of the same pens you do, and I find the twsbi go a bit awkward, the cheap feeling plastic is what gets me though, feels cheaper than any other pen except for maybe a platinum preppy imo. It is also a bit slippery because of this.

agree that the plastic feels cheap and I don't personally care for it.

I DO like how a preppy feels though, but I admit that from an objective perspective, the preppy is also made of cheap plastic.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
