Aurora Duo Cart Fountain Pen - Black/Chrome Cap, Medium is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pen, terrible converter. I've been using this for about a month now and I have to say that I really enjoy using it. The ink flow is excellent and that medium nib is just smooth as can be. Of course, I also like the classic design. Reminds me of a Parker 51. There are two gripes that I do have with the pen. One: You have to really put pressure to get the cap to post. If not it rattles about and falls off. Two: the ink converter is a junk! It leaked all over the inside of the pen when I first inked it up. I'd recommend only cartridges for this pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and delightful, just like Stockard Channing's Rizzo. Only just got this pen, so an initial reaction review. Also, pretty new to fountain pens, so actual geek knowledge is thin on the ground. This pen has a look that is going for elegance; with the lid on, it is rather sleek. But uncapped, and unposted, it becomes ever so slightly bouncy and preppy and eager to please, and the nib has a hint of a perky little snub nose. Put the cap back on, or use it posted, and the pen displays gravitas, as its weight keeps it grounded. But there is a lovely little pop, as you push the cap off, (re-capping and de-capping is satisfyingly physical), and despite the business-like black and chrome, this pen is so much fun to use. Currently "Summer Loving" it out, with some Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki-shikibu (Japanese Beautyberry)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great writer! This pen is just about perfect. It's extremely comfortable in the hand and writes fantastically consistent with not a hint of starting hard or dry. It's not a gusher, but pleasantly wet, putting enough ink to paper to really show off subtle colors in your ink of choice. I actually prefer it posted, because the cap posts so far deep on the body and adds quite a bit of heft which to me makes the nib/paper contact feel even better and more positive. My converter was a little stiff, but fortunately, a very simple disassembly allowed for the application of a little silicone grease. At first, I thought the price was on the high side for a steel nibbed pen, but after holding in hand and after a few written sentences, I couldn't be happier, and am very satisfied with the price paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Pen First let me state, I am partial to hooded nib pens, so when this showed up, I had to get one. Nice smooth writer, writes "wet" and a fine nib would have been more to my liking, but overall a very nice pen. It has found a spot in my daily rotation, and while not quite a Parker 51, it is a very nice hooded-nib pen. I would not hesitate to purchase another if available with fine nib.
