After trying out the Pilot Varsity fountain pen and being a little disappointed with it's performance, I decided to try out this Platinum Preppy pen (also available in Black, Red, Yellow and Pink)

As I had mentioned in my previous review, my primary reason to use a fountain pen over a ball/roller point is the smoothness offered. Having used this pen for a few weeks I can list out the following based on my experience:

(1) Nib/writing: This is one of the smoothest pens I've used, especially considering it's price point. The ink flow is consistent and the pens glides over almost any type of paper! It's way smoother than the Pilot Varsity I had reviewed earlier; I also happened to try a Lamy Safari and found this smoother at about a fourth of the cost.

(2) Weight: like the Pilot Varsity this pen is very light, this may or may not be an advantage, it was good for me since I plan on carrying this pen with me at all times.

(3) Price: the price is right, as a pen I hope to carry around often I won't feel bad if I lose or permanently 'lend' it to someone.

This is the free pen that comes with the 4.5 oz bottles of Noodler's ink. When you buy it from Noodler's it's been converted to an eyedropper pen, so that you can use the entire barrel as an ink reservoir, making it an excellent pen to take to class with you for taking notes and the rest. I'd class this as a step down in width from a Pilto Metropolitan. The line is fairly fine, but not as scratchy as a fine pen tends to be. In fact, for what it is, it's a startlingly smooth writing pen.

I've tested the pen on premium paper (Rhodia, to be exact), the heavy cardstock used for time punch cards, notebook paper, as well as carbon paper from a vendor's invoice. I've also written on basic copy paper, sticky notes, and all kinds of scraps of paper you see every day. There is moderate ghosting on the other side, but because the tip is so fine, you don't see a whole lot of bleed through. Even on the thin, cruddy paper (the carbon copy), there was no feathering at all with Noodler's Heart of Darkness.

Nib creep is minimal with Noodler's ink in this pen, whereas the Metro tends to have a messy looking nib every time I take it out of my bag. The cost on Amazon, however, is ATROCIOUS. Every major pen carrier will have the Platinum Preppy for $3. If you are making an order on another pen site for a more expensive pen, throw in a few Preppy pens to take advantage of the lower price everywhere else on the planet.

I found these "disposable" fountain pens by chance in a stationary shop in Taipei. I say disposable because they're far cheaper than most fountain pens (at the time I was looking for a 70-90 dollar one), and the body is made of clear plastic. But the nib and ink are very good, and I find that both of mine (same model) write better than the Lamy pen I acquired more recently. The only problem is trying to find replacement cartridges, since I'm half a world away from the shop that I bought them. Definitely a good buy.

I received one of these pens as a gift and have used them exclusively ever since. I always carry one in my pocket and don't own any other writing implements. They are cheap, refillable and write perfectly all the time.

I had been looking at these pens for quite a while. When I fell a few dollars short of free shipping, I I decided the time had come to try one of these. With the difference in shipping it was like I was getting paid $4 to get this pen. Yay Amazon!

The pros:
-Writes smooth, really smooth, even smoother than that.
-Easily converted to an I dropper pen to hold tons of ink.
-Can take some abuse. Toss it in a backpack with a bunch of other pointy things and it'll be fine.

The cons:
-It takes it's own converter/cartridge. Same as most (all?) Platinum pens.
-The converter costs more than the pen, still cheap overall though.

The review:
It's a $4 fountain pen. That's a big plus in a world that can be hazardous to pens. This pen seems to be able to hold its own in the durability category. I've tossed it around quite a bit, and no real damage has been done. That's probably due to the plastic it's made out of. It's not so hard that it feels like it's going to crack, and not so soft that it feels like it's going to bend. It feels like plastic, but it's very smooth plastic more like what you'd find on a more expensive pen.

The nib writes smooth right from the first time I put ink in it. It feels more like a big rollerball than a fountain pen. I got the 0.3 nib and it writes more like a medium German French nib. That's with the cartridge it came with. Personally I would have liked a finer line. Did I mention it's smooth? I have pens that cost 100 times more than this one that don't write this smooth. In fact there's only a few pens that I have that wrote as smooth as this one without tuning. So while I want a finer line, this pen gets top marks for smoothness. It really is that good.
