Pros: These are perfect for on the go calligraphy. In fact, they are so convenient, the only times I pull out my dip pens are for things like Copperplate calligraphy, which requires sharp, flexible nibs, and when I am doing something with an ink that doesnt work all that well with them, most notably J. Herbin's Emerald of Chivor (it has gold flakes, and the pen I tried it in had trouble not with getting clogged, but with even distrobution of flakes). The colors that came with the pens were a perfectly workable black and what to me was a slightly garish red (no more garish than most regular red pens, I just tend to like slightly darker colors). After I used up the first cartridge, I got an ink syringe and started filling up the empty cartridges with my own inks.
Inks Ive successfully used in these pens include: Noodler's Antietam, Noodler's Ottoman Rose, Noodler's Apache Sunset,and to some extent, the Emerald of Chivor
Cons: There is a weak point in the pens where the body meets the feed, and it is liable to break there. On my 6.0mm pen, over the past 2 months or so, the plastic on the feed where the body screws on has been slowly breaking and is now almost completely seperated from the main feed. This causes a lot of flex between the body and the feed, putting more strain on the area. I believe that the majority of the damage came from putting them in my pocket and sitting down with it early on when I had gotten them.
Comments: The size that I use the most has to be the 3.8 mm tip. I find that the 1.5 is too small for anything beyond slightly flashy writing and accenting stuff written with larger pens. I lost the next size up one, and the 6.0 is too big for a lot of general use, plus the cracking makes it more nerve-wracking to use. The pens that I ordered came with a giant blue bulb for cleaning out the pen instead of a converter that would fit inside the body of the pen, but that really isnt an issue anyways since I use a syringe to refill the cartridge.
TL:DR- Great for a beginner and pro, at the very least, it is good to use when practicing forms. Dont treat is as casually as a regular pen do to possibility of breaking the connection between the body and the feed. Price is essentially by 3 get one free.
The Amazon listing has a picture that shows that each of the 4 pens come with a converter (the same black bladder squeeze style converter that comes with the Pilot Metropolitan) however instead of getting the pictured converter it looks like Pilot has replaced it with a blue cleaning bulb. The cleaning bulb is too large to even try to use as a makeshift converter, so if you want to use bottled ink you'll need to purchase four Pilot CON-20's or Pilot CON-50's.
I first ordered from an Amazon-fulfilled 3rd party seller and it didn't have the converters. I figured they must have old stock and Pilot must not have included the converters in the past, so I immediately returned it and reordered directly from Amazon.com. The Amazon.com ones didn't have the converters either so I can confidently say that, at least as of 11/22/2015, these pens no longer come with converters.
Other than that (which is a big deal to me since I wanted to use fountain pen ink I already had, I bought 4 CON-20's to remedy it however), the pens work great and feel good despite being plastic. Just keep in mind that you need to buy converters if you want to use bottled ink.

Bad part is that the ink doesn’t last so long if you use them a lot.Read more
