After watching Brian Goulet's video on the new Pilot Metropolitan fine point, I decided to give one a try. I had my eye on the White Tiger model for a while, so I bought one with a fine nib from my friends at The Goulet Pen Company.
Let me say this at the outset: If you don't have a Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen in your collection, get one! At $15, it is one of the true bargains of the fountain pen world.
I always add a CON-50 twist converter to my Metros, since I am not thrilled with the included CON-20 squeeze converter. That adds a bit over $5 to the price, but to me, it is well worth it.
The Metropolitan fine point is a great writer. It produces a true Japanese fine line with just a touch of feedback. For me, it has become a daily writer due to its low cost and great performance. Highly recommended!
