Preppy fountain pens are so awesome!

In fact, for what it is, it's a startlingly smooth writing pen.

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.

Preppy fountain pens are so awesome! They never skip until the very last of the ink is out and have refillable packs (in every color) so you can use them over and over. True, they are plastic and might break but you'll get loads of use out of it first without spending a bundle. Being a writer, I am a total pen snob and this one cuts it. I also like the preppy highlighters with refillable ink. Nice and juicy and bright.
