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.

Pen is great looking being all black with the silver tone accents. However, it's a very very light pen. With the cap posted.. Tis a bit back heavy. I tried a converter full of a Diamine ink and the nib.. The nib is claimed to be a EF but dang I think they forgot a E. It's needle like. Fit and finsh is great and while the screw in converter is a good idea I think that it could cause issues later because the threads are not that deep. Still deciding on whether to try another converter full of lubricating ink or not. Perhaps I will leave it on my shelf and see if I can come out even on it in the end.

I was really looking forward to using my Duraflex Exclusive, but was rather disappointed on a couple of counts. 1) Though there is a good amount of line variation which I love, the nib is a bit scratchy. When I had the chance to examine the nib under a 10x loupe, I realized that the feed is crooked which in turn has caused the tines to splay a bit. It doesn't seem as if this can be hand corrected as the nib and feed appear to be fused into one unit. 2) There are two different descriptions of the pen: the text and the video describe the Limited Edition, which is numbered; the title and picture is the Exclusive, which I purchased. The difference between the video, text and actual picture and title needs to be corrected.

My disclaimer: I am not, never have been and never will be a fountain pen connoisseur. I'm simply a hobbyist. That said, I am really pleased with the Duraflex Exclusive. If you're looking for the feel and style of a vintage flex pen with a gold nib, then by all means buy one, as they are quite easy to find, in fact, I own one myself. If, however, you're looking for a well made, fine quality, reasonably priced flex nib fountain pen that you could and may want to use every day then this is the one for you. It writes very smoothly and with a some extra downward pressure delivers anywhere from a slight to a substantial amount of line variation to add a little extra character to your writing. In fact, I like the Duraflex better than my vintage flex. Considering the price and the build quality, in my humble opinion you just can't go wrong with it. As an added perk, the nib unit fits my other Conklin pen perfectly. Will probably buy another pen and maybe an extra nib unit as well. Happy writing!

As a pen collector of fine writing instruments, feel more than pleased with fountain pen purchased. It's an excellent quality writing instrument and had a "deal" price. Thanks.

I wasn't a fan of flex nibs, couldn't quite get it but this lovely pen is so easy to use and writes really well. Good pen for the price too!

I like the pen in general. I have filed the pen from a bottle twice. Both times my fingers on my writing hand were stained when I removed the cap. It is the first flex pen I have ever purchased and I do like the control of the stroke.
