The Conklin Duraflex has turned out to be one of my favorite fountain pens, but there's a key thing you have to do before writing (otherwise it would be a very frustrating pen): Prime the feed. In other words, constrict the converter piston a little, or squeeze the cartridge a little, so that it pushes ink to the nib and feed (not enough to make it leak or drip, of course). It's worked like a dream every time I've done this.

If that's not enough, try widening and deepening the ink channels on the feed with an x-acto knife or something similar. (I did this *before* regularly priming the feed, so I don't know for sure if priming is always enough.)

Smooth. Slick. Sharp. Sturdy. Stellar. And stunning.


Size-wise, it is almost exactly as long as a Noodler's ebonite Konrad in my accumulation of pens and 0.026" larger in diameter right below the cap, measuring 0.496 where the Konrad measures 0.475". (If you speak Metric, that's 12.5984 mm vs. 12.065 mm.) This pen is anexceptionally smooth writer, and it does display some line width variation with varying pressure as I write. This is a worthy step-up from a starter pen.

A non fully functioning pen. The flexible nib is skipping/hard to start a lot. This is not a pen in the league of regular flex nib pens such as the Pilot Falcon (as a popular alternative).
Really disappointing in the nib quality. First and last Conklin pen.

The night was terrible. Called Yafa pen and ordered an broad ñib. Whoever developed the Flex ñib should be fired.

I have to give this high marks. This is my first Conklin Duraflex with an Omniflex nib and I loved it. This is a wet versatile nib that functioned beautifully for my calligraphy. The Sunstone body is lovely. Honestly, pictures don't do it justice. And the rose gold just made the whole pen stand out. I highly recommend this pen. It is a fantastic value as most Conklin' pens are. To date I own the Turquoise, Cracked Ice, and several other colors of this style of Conklin. I will keep collecting these limited editions because they are just stand outs in the pen community.

I have a love/hate relationship with this pen. The pen itself is a beauty, all black with a black nib. The dark clip and metal accents offer just enough contrast to the glossy black resin body. Although this looks nearly identical to the Duragraph, there are some differences. Most notably, and annoyingly, the cap takes almost three full turns to take off and post. The Duragraph takes one turn. That's a lot of turning.
Posting the cap is not for the timid as the posted pen length is 175 mm (almost 7 inches). Unposted is probably the best way to wield this pen.
I was experiencing the skipping and hard starts that others were complaining of with the flex-nib (many others, and loudly), but I knew that this might be an issue going in. After some work, it seems to be working smoothly and the feed seems to be keeping up with the nib. I hope this continues to be the case.
A mixed bag. The pen is striking and writes beautifully. When it writes. I got lucky with mine after some tweaking. Opening and closing also gets a bit tiresome. I still like it and it was worth the purchase.

I am in love with this fountain pen. It writes like a dream. I make up excuses to write so I can use it. Nib is beautiful. Very responsive. Adore it.

Great-looking pen with a nice flex nib. While the black coating on my nib began to wear off almost immediately, Pen Chalet replaced the nib within two days of my contacting them. The new nib is perfect.
