I really like this pen. I have always liked Platinum pens and this one has made me a bigger fan. I bought this with an EF nib and it writes very smooth and is nice and wet. Platinum nibs are awesome! I have an issue of it drying up if not used for several days, I just need to clean the nib a little and it is back to working great. That may be an issue of it being EF, I have mostly used Fine nibs prior to this owning this pen. The design is different since it is retractable. As with all of my pens I have a slightly different grip. The little bumps on the bottom took a little getting used to but I don't notice them anymore. It does have a larger body than my other pens and I tend not to write for long periods (more than 20 minutes) with it. Works great as a daily driver and will be a regular in my rotation. As always great service from Pen Chalet.

I hesitated to purchase because of reviews I saw on UTube: I worried that clip and proturbances on the barrel would interfere with grip on pen.Not a bit of it!
Pen is comfortable to hold, EF nib writes smoothly, mechanism works flawlessly.
Cartridge insertion is a tad complex, but easy to master.
I love the pen !!!

Fascinating mechanism! The fine nib is a bit finer than western extra fine. The diameter is similar to a Noodlers Ahab. It's a little long with the nib retracted, but just about perfect with the nib extended. The clip doesn't bother my grip, but it's easily removed if it troubles you. Check out the excellent video on the product page, it is spot on.

Impressive pen! Writes well. Has a comfortable fit in the hand. Clip does not get in the way of my writing. Capacity for ink is average, but that just allows me to try various inks with the pen. I purchased the Extra Fine nib. After using this, I think I would purchase the Fine nib if I were to buy again.

Pros: 1. Looks cool, not too industrial, not too classical. 2. Glides effortlessly once the nib softens up after repeated use. 3. Large and bold with a quirky, intricate mechanism for accessing the converter.
Cons: 1. Too long to clip it in pocket. 2. It took a while to soften the nib and to get the ink flowing smoothly.
Overall, it is surprisingly light with a broad grip. If you like the Pilot Vanishing point, you'll like this one, but the writing experience is completely different due to the broad grip and extreme lack of heft.

This pen is incredibly uncomfortable, awkward, bulky, and annoying. Part of the problem may be that I have small arthritic hands,but I have never had this much pain from using a pen before.

This pen doesn't write smoothly either. This really surprised me because you can usually count on Platinum to have incredibly smooth pens.

I also found the innards of the pen to be too much trouble.

I love pens. I love Platinum, but I have never hated a pen more. I'm angry for making a fairly expensive mistake.

These are excellent pens that provide a unique but functional appeal. Filling the pen and changing inks is not as easy as I would like, but it is such a small inconvenience. I recommend watching the video on the Pen Chalet site to save yourself some time. I didn't remove the clip at first, but it is more comfortable without it. Nonetheless, it is one of my favorite everyday pens.

Lots of cool engineering on display with this model. Perfect for high tech pen nerds. Fine nib smooth with a little feedback and good flow with Waterman Mysterious Blue. Fits my hand fine. Possible EDC pen.

Writes really well. I am happy with the Fine nib. Not for the nervous clicky types, if you click it too fast I have seen small ink droplets hit the paper. If treated as a fountain pen then its really great.
