I got this as my first everyday fountain pen and have since bought several other pens. I still find myself going back to the Pilot Metropolitan over other pens. This pen is a great workhorse. It, like all Pilot pens, has a fantastic nib and writes incredibly smooth for a pen under $20.
When I called to order a new pen for daily use, and wanted a nice smooth-writing pen, the sales rep told me about this line of pens. She told me to not think of the low price as being indicative of its writing ease, and she war right! It is so smooth and ink flows very well and uniformly. Pretty stiff nib, but that is fine for what I need as a go-to everyday pen. It does not hold a ton of ink, though, and you can't see the ink level in the rubber bladder. I really like it, and ordered another to have on hand with a different color ink.
