Cross Apogee Fountain Pen Assessment
The Cross Apogee is a superb pen that’s inside most individuals’s price range, with a really modern, trendy design. Taking the cap off reveals the rhodium plated gold nib, though it appears a bit on the small aspect. This, I really feel provides to the design, though some individuals might not prefer it. I might additionally add that is one within the heavier fountain pens that I’ve used. This provides the pen the sensation of substance, this weight doesn’t make it uncomfortable when writing.
The Apogee comes with a converter and a few cartridges. The converter screws into place and could be very sturdy and straightforward to make use of. The one draw back with that is that I really feel it might maintain a bit extra ink. I am unsure it holds sufficient for a full day’s writing.
So how does it write? I need to say first impressions have been wonderful. As quickly as I put pen to paper there was no scratching however a clean and nice ink-flow. The nib is not actually that versatile, nevertheless it does give sufficient to permit some variation within the ink line. Basically I discovered this pen extraordinarily straightforward to write down with. I used to be utilizing a medium nib, nevertheless I might advocate a effective nib. I suppose this all will depend on your writing type. I discovered the medium nib did give a really clear line with a pleasant quantity of wetness. Right here is an occasional skip, however not sufficient to trigger an issue.
The one actual grievance I had about this pen was the clip, as I discovered it very troublesome to function. Being spring loaded it’s worthwhile to push down on the clip on the finish of the pen, which could be very troublesome in a single handed use. The truth that that is fairly a slippery pen makes it troublesome to clip it into your shirt pocket one handed. General although I might undoubtedly advocate the Cross Apogee as I am extraordinarily happy with it.
