Aurora Optima Fountain Pen - Rossa/Chrome, Extra-Fine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found it at Goulet The xf nib is between Japanese and Western. Smooth piston. Beautiful nib. I think I found my every day writer at last. Goulet is the best. I like the tooth. Pens with easily removable nibs are easy to clean and last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Pen I purchased my Black Gold Aurora Optima in 1996 in Extra Fine. By far this has been my best purchase! Daily writer, excellent features. One feature that this pen has is a extra resevoir. The pen can be totally empty, but you can still write about 300 extra words before the pen is totally dry. The pen has been a daily writer since 1996 and it still looks completely mint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Red Aurora Got it maybe 4 hours ago and been writing with it since. First, the looks are great -- classy and classic all the way. The color is a beautiful shade of red giving somewhat wild and energetic feel (go with burgundy if want a bit tamer feel). Chrome details are professionally and tastefully done. The integrated piston filler is smooth and easy to use (reminds on fillers that Pelikan uses in its higher end Souverans, M800 comes to mind). The balance is great both posted and not posted. The nib quality is outstanding. Its output performance is very similar to Visconti HS EF in terms of thickness of lines with the same ink (4001 Brilliant Black), but the nib has more feedback (while Visconti HS nib is a superb "glider"). Personally, I do like both gliders and some feedback, but sometimes a bit of feedback adds to having a great writing experience. Overall, there is nothing to dislike about this great-looking and great-performing fountain pen.
