This is a good looking pen from Sheaffer - well balanced and of a good size. The nib is smooth and pleasing. The only drawback is that there are some issues with skipping and starting trouble. Once you start writing though, it is a pleasure to write with.
If you really wanna feel what a fountain pen is, kindly go for it!Perfect ink flow with a stylish yet hardy barrel. The weight of the pen is no nicely balanced that fingers wont get easily fatigued even for after prolonged and fast writing!!! I would recommend Medium nib, since it gives the best flow. Out of all the different Prelude models, this Black-Nickel stands out! However, you should wash it at least once a month and take care of the scratches specially for the glossy models..
I have used Sheaffer prelude before and then its nib broke. This is my second prelude that I have ordered. It goes withoit saying that this is a splendid writing instrument. The grip is superb, the nib id firm and smooth, flow is consistent. Its a pleasure writing with this pen. The body is ALL METAL, clad in laquer. It feels solid and pricy. The price at the same time is reasonable for this good a pen. Highly recommended.
As for Flipkart Delivery I cannot say the same. I have been a Flipka...
