I really enjoy using this pen. This is something every inker should have. While the tip doesn't flex quite as much as a regular nib, that's a small price to pay for the convenience of not having to re-dip the tip every few seconds.

As mentioned several times in the user reviews, it is a very decent beginner pen. However, the pressure required to bring out a nice, swell & ebb line demands less finesse and more brute force. This is especially true for those who would like to try it out on their sketchbooks. While it may not be normally recommended in avg 65lbs sketchbooks (Of which I tried it out on an 80lbs sketchbook paper.) anyway, the force required to get a decent thickness in line will cause the pen tip to not only scratch the paper in a manner that may spread the ink, but also damage itself in the process. So, you have the balance of using an inexpensive, convenient pen with a much more higher-end quality paper to compensate for it, or settle for the more traditional methods of the dip-pen that allow you to settle for something less pricy as a surface work on. For a very nice price tag like this, however, it shouldn't even be an issue of at least picking up one to try yourself.
