Excellent October 28, 2014
Reviewer: dane kingey from eugene, OR United States  
Purchased several to give as gifts to non-fountain pen users so I could get them into unique inks.

However, I had to go back and buy more for myself! Great flow, with very little pressure required.  Outstanding little pen and a great way to experience fun ink for the less enlightened...

I really want to love this pen October 15, 2014
Reviewer: Kuna  
The good:
The design is quite lovely.  The pen has the marks of a quality Noodler's product that you can come to expect.  The body and piston of this pen are solid and reliable.  It's a great size/weight, and the balance (esp. for such a light pen) is quite even.

The bad:
I really wanted to love this pen when I received it, but the rollerball nib just didn't stack up.  It squeaked, squawked, and scratched across every paper I tried and with every ink I tried.
After about a week's use, the rollerball rolled its way right out of the nib and I was left with an open metal hole.

Finishing remarks:
I have not yet replaced the nib, but I plan to.  If the replacement nib is any better, I will gladly increase my rating for this pen.  It's a beautiful design, and I would hate to see it wasted on such a critical detail.

Great pen at any price September 23, 2014
Reviewer: Dane from Oregon  
I bought several for gifts for those who don't "get" the whole fountain pen bit.  Maybe I can win them over starting with love of various inks.

Interested, I inked it up and was floored by how wonderfully it performed.  Almost no pressure was needed to maintain a steady, wet flow and the amount of feedback from the rollerball was spot on.

At 14 bucks, this thing is fantastic!! I love them demonstrator to let newbies understand the mechanics and the lovely color of thier unique ink.

I've received rave reviews from those gift recipients; I just might have to include these (and a bottle of ink or two) in everyone's Christmas sock this year.  And, maybe a few for me as well.

Novelty item, not a pen, do not buy! September 17, 2014
Reviewer: Andrew D'Amour from Maynard, MA United States  
A pen is a tool, a tool must work well and serve the needs of its user.  This 'pen' seems amazing, but the constant leaking, blotching and uselessness of it renders it worthless.  Do not buy this.  Frankly, i'd love one of these that worked, but i even wonder if the concept is flawed as a whole.  I suggest Goulet stop carrying this item immediately.

Good - for a refillable rollerball September 17, 2014
Reviewer: Ben Cunning from Beaver Falls, PA United States  
I use this pen regularly when grading student papers.  The ink capacity is superior to the J. Herbin rollerball, but sometimes the ball can feel a little scratchy or sticky.  This is especially true if the pen hasn't been used for a day or two.  I haven't had any issues with leaks or ink seeping behind the piston and I've had the pen for about a month now.  I will say that it writes a medium line and with Skrip red is pretty wet, I sometimes get a lot of feathering and bleed through.  I imagine with an ink like X-feather it would probably be a little better in that regard.  

In the end, not as great as a traditional fountain pen, but worthwhile to consider for applications that need a ball point or roller ball.
