Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Pen I wanted to try an inexpensive pen to see if I liked using fountain pens so I bought a 3-pack of Varsities. Mine were fail-proof writers. They always started writing immediately, wrote smoothly, and were "wet writers." Pilot makes very good nibs.When I got my next pen, it didn't write as smooth as the Varsities. Don't dismiss them because they are inexpensive. They are real fountain pens--they have an ink reservoir, a feed, and a nib. Fountain pens aren't complicated. A little history--If you decide to use them as "eye droppers," as suggested in the description, you'll be going back to the earliest days of fountain pens, before self-filling fountain pens were developed. (Note: Wouldn't it be cool if Brian G. made a video on turning the Varsity into a eye dropper? It would be a good intro to pen maintenance without risking an expensive pen.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen, Great Ink, Goulet. Absolutely wonderful Fountain Pen! Always wanted to look into getting a Fountain Pen but didn't want to spend big money on something that might fall out. This pen is a throw away pen and it is great! Perfect for College Students, especially for students that have the issue of losing things really fast. Smaller than I expected, but not a big issue. Nice dark, vibrant, and thick ink my only regret is that one day it will run out of ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disposably Wonderful I am a fifth grade teacher and decided to introduce my students to fountain pens because they help to maintain the essence of the written word. I have had no problems with the Pilot Varsity, and many of my students love they way that this particular fountain pen writes, they are impressed with how smooth the nib feels. I do hope that my students will pass on the love of fountain pens to their own children. Three cheers for Pilot Varsity fountain pens!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value and smooth use. I'm very pleased with the Pilot Varsity Fountain Pen! It's comfortable to hold and dispenses ink smoothly even when held at awkward angles. I've been using it for sketches and like the way the nib moves easily across the different surfaces I use. I also like that I can add watercolor to the ink lines and the lines remain waterproof, a real plus for sketchers. My concerns; No visible window so I can tell when the pen is almost out of ink; I like a finer nib so would like one finer than the current one; It would be great to be able to refill using an eye dropper so I'd welcome that feature. I know it's only $3.00 but I'm not a big fan of "throw away" to take up more landfill. Can Pilot do something about this? Last line: Great pen for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! Like most, I bought the Varsity as an inexpensive entry into fountain pens and to see if I enjoyed writing with them. While I am a novice with only 4 different pens to compare amongst, I can say that this is a great daily writer. Always smooth, starts reliably, and the nib (that feels like a medium) puts down the right amount of ink to be wet and glide without feathering even on cheap notebook paper. The black ink that was in mine behaved very well on several different papers and makes for a great writing experience. I recently converted one to an eyedropper (i.e. watched a video on how to take the nib out) and filled one with Noodler's 54th Massachusetts. So far, it's behaving well and seems to be a decent combination. I could see this being my go to pen to test ink samples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good little pen Nice cheap little pen! Nib is smooth and writes great! For such a cheap price everyone should have at least one for FP emergencies!! As usual goulet pens did a phenomenal job and I wouldn't buy from anyone else!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value I bought this pen for two reasons. I wanted to see how it lived up to the great reviews and just how good a disposable FP could be. Second, a friend has shown interest in fountain pens and asked for Goulet's links. I plan to give him this pen as his starter pen. Since it was not sealed up, I had to give it a try. It writes just great! If that large barrel is full of ink it should last a very long time. Wrote wet and dark, smooth, I am amazed that it can be sold for $3, let alone made for $3! Note, I did not test it alongside my Pilot VP, I was a little afraid to!! Thanks Goulet for carrying great value products. Wonderful team to do business with. Love your videos. I will not deal with any other company unless Goulet does not carry what I want (very rarely happens). Team Goulet: you are the best.
