The pen is attractive and well made, very comfortable to hold, the feel of the nib on paper is great, and it writes very well without skipping while in use - BUT - after even a few hours of non-use it requires several tries to get the ink flowing again, and the problem seems to be getting worse with time.. I have several other Parker pens, some even cheaper than the Reflex, which do not exhibit this difficulty. I am using cartridges in this pen which I purchased from Overstock at the same time, and it has been suggested to me that perhaps old ink is responsibke for the problem. I plan to clean the pen and try new ink to see if that improves the situation.
