I'm relatively new to the fountain pen world and was wanting to get a nice looking high quality pen that didn't cost hundreds of dollars. I really liked the look of the Invincia Deluxe, the carbon fiber and rose gold seemed to go together perfectly. I got the medium nib and it is the smoothest writing experience I have had. In my Clairefontaine notebook it makes a very pleasant sound (almost a squeak sometimes). The nib gives little resistance against the paper as well, only enough to know that the nib is touching the paper. The included converter screws in, which is a nice touch.
I've been using the pen for about 4 months now and have never had any startup problems or skipping. I've only used this pen with Iroshizuku Yama-Guri.
The only other pens I own are a Lamy Safari (B) and a Monteverde Artista Crystal (M). It may also be worth pointing out that I am a left handed over-writer.

A very handsome pen with a smooth nib... heavy compared to my other pens but not uncomfortable to hold the 1.1 stub nib makes for some eye catching line pared with a ink that shades it makes for a beautiful letter
