Not too bad, but cartridges leave much to be desired,
on 13 February 2014
Bought one of these to replace my Parker rollerball since Parker's british factory closed down, and the refills from the French factories are absolutely appauling (as in, 3/6 I bought were DOA, 2 died in the space of a few days and only 1 has been going for a few weeks like it should do)
Personally, I find the pen a bit too bulky to write quickly with, and I'm really not a fan of the triangular grip, but that may just be because I'm used to my Parker.
The cartridges are the biggest let down. They feel like just a standard ballpoint to me, without the fluidity of the Parker refills.
I am going to try and retrofit a Pilot G2 gel cartridge into it, it's apparently do-able with modification.
Also bought a Lamy Al-star, and prefer this one personally. Though the grip on the Al-star is a bit easier to hold.
