The snazzy new look of the Pilot Metropolitan - Pop! An exquisite pen that combines color, comfort, and design all in one pen for an affordable pen. Available in Fine and Medium stainless steel nibs. The pen is available in 6 different styles/colors.
Before the Metro Pop's came out, I had the pleasure of writing with a Pilot Metropolitan in Taupe. The Fine nib Pilot Met is a very well built pen that is of medium weight. It looks and feels as thought it should cost $50 or more! Thankfully, it is no where near that in cost.
Comfortable to write with posted or unposted, this pen makes for a great daily user. You can use just about any ink in these pens. With that being said, I do want to put out a disclaimer: I would not suggest using any of the Diamine Glitter inks in these pens. The Diamine Shimmering Seas that I currently have in the Taupe Metro pictured above, has severely clogged the pen and feed to where it will not write. It did this immediately after filling it up with that ink. I was able to squeeze the converter and get some ink out, however it did not solve the problem for long.
The Pilot Metropolitan Pop Fine nib throws down a nice, smooth, consistent line; a line very similar to a Lamy Extra-Fine nib. These pens are fairly easy to clean and use and are great for the beginner fountain pen collector to the experienced enthusiast!They can be purchased for $15 at Pen Chalet (Free shipping on orders of $50 or more).
