Given that this pen is so small, I had to write with it posted. Unposted, I could still write with it but it was more comfortable posted. Those with larger hands will definitely need to post it. It is also very light, especially unposted, so posting it gave it some more weight. I can see the light weight of it being an issue for some users. If you prefer heavy pens, this may not be up your alley.

- Clear section- very cool to look at the feed!
- Comes in a variety of accent colours that are really quite attractive.
- Nib offers line variation with almost no effort on user's part.
- Very little learning curve - nib is very forgiving.
- Horrendous lid. Too much white on it.
- A little more expensive than I'd like.
- Quite light and small. (Not an issue for me but for others, it will be!)
Ah yes, my affair with clear bodies continues. This one has a lot going for it, but a major flaw as well. The size is very nice, somewhat cute. Gorgeous appearance, especially with the light accents (in this case, the light green). I hate the white inner cap. I really don't know what's up with that. But I love the clear feed and I love the rest of the pen. Enjoyable nib to write with - reliable, no skipping, no hard starts. At $58.00USD, It's about $10 - $15 more than I think it should be, but oh well. I'm not reasonable about pens on the best of days. A much cheaper alternative would be a Plumix, but this body is far better looking, more convenient, and more comfortable.
