Platinum Plaisir Fountain Pen - Green, Fine is rated 4.68 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice inexpensive pen I purchased this pen on a whim and I am not disappointed. I don't need to carry a Pelikan or TWSBI or vintage Esterbrook every day. But I do need to carry a fountain pen! The Plaisir fits the bill quite well. It can knock around in my backpack and still look good. I am a high school teacher and I generally use a fountain pen when I grade papers. The Plaisir has not dried out, even when I have the cap off and am pondering while deciphering student work. The nib is smooth and I like the color as well. The price was right and the Goulet method of packaging was, as always, secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good budget pen This is a very brief review because I only quickly tested the pen (it's for a gift). The appearance of the pen is quite nice, it has a very bright, shiny finish, and the clear grip section is a nice touch. The feed+nib is exactly the same as a Preppy fine--writes like a European extra-fine, very stiff, but entirely functional with flow that is on the drier side. The nib is not catchy, but not smooth, either. It has a level of feedback like writing with a mechanical pencil. I don't mind it at all, but some people might. The cap is a snap-cap, and snaps very securely onto the pen. The pen feels extremely light, especially when compared to the similar-sized Pilot Metropolitan. In all, a good pen to move onto if you're looking for a much more durable version of the Preppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from platinum plaisir, fine nib this is my second platinum plaisir; i love this pen! it's inexpensive and writes well, and i love how fine the nib is. i ran through several of the platinum preppies (which is exactly like the plaisirs, except with a plastic body), and half of the pens' plastic cracked, so those are definitely not meant for longer term use. unlike the platinum plaisir, the preppies are also prone to drying out. i'm happy that the platinum plaisir i received had a working nib, and writes without being scratchy (as this is sometimes a concern with these cheap platinum nibs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Writes great! This is a very nice pen, good hand and writes very nice. Weight is well balanced in the hand. I love how it is a bit of glam and yet so functional. Becoming a fast favorite pen to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fountain pen I haven't been able to use this pen too much, but when I have it's very nice. The nib is a fine nib, but compared to my Lamy it's more like their medium nib and I usually like a finer nib. Also, when I tried this pen with a composition book I got from Walmart's it bled through too much. But then again everything else I tried also did the same thing except my extra-fine nib Lamy fountain pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Price I really like this pen. It has a little bit of tactile feedback (read: a bit scratchy), but I like that it's not too smooth. The included converter is fantastic and really easy to fill. The writing is on the finer side. I have also never had a problem with it starting, it has always been ready to go when I needed it. Solid, cheap pen. (The nib is green, too! How about them apples!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen and Great Price The pen was bought for use in grading student term papers, an activity occurring at the end of the semester, leaving the pen unused for days and weeks at a time... even when not used for weeks, the pen starts right up without a hitch... the preppy nib writes smoothly... the metal body offers more protection than the preppy's, and it looks better...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, sturdy pen Worked well right out of the box, and I keep it filled with green ink, which I don't use on a regular basis, which is why the properties of this pen (not drying out when it isn't used for awhile) were high on the list of reasons why I purchased it. No skips, a smooth writer and comfortable in the hand.
