Smooth Writing with a Little Feedback
I'm kicking myself for not buying this pen earlier. If you get it for under a $110, it's a great deal. Make sure that you check the rating of the reseller before you order the pen. Matrix Trading Store was the reseller on my order. They were highly rated and they delivered the pen in a nicely wrappe...

Fountain Pen Review: Sailor Pro Gear Slim Purple Cosmos
I’ll admit – the Sailor beats the Pelikan every time. Though she be but little, she be fierce. Editor’s Note: While the Sailor Pro Gear Slim Purple Cosmos was limited edition, other models of the Pro Gear Slim are available and Sailor releases limited edition models throughout the year through various retailers worldwide

Good starter fountain pen
Your budget is way high for a good starter pen :-) lucky him. For that budget a Sailor pro gear slim, Platinum 3776, pilot custom 74 and several good pens could be his options. Depends a lot on writing style, size of the hand and other preferences. Honestly, if he has not written with fountain pens extensively yet, I would start with a Pilot Metropolitan.

The Sailor nibs are known for being very smooth, and boy was it. We were sold on them from the first word we wrote. What are your thoughts/experience with the Pro Gear Slim?

Sailor Pro Gear Slim Review — Minty Pens
It is a plastic bodied pen, with a proprietary plastic Sailor feed, proprietary cartridge/converter system, and a 14k gold nib. The Pro Gear Slim is also referred to as the Sailor Sapporo in the Japanese market.For the sake of this review I'll focus on a specific pen that (as of this blog post) is available in the worldwide market, the Sailor Pro Gear Slim "Ocean"

Is it just me or?..
To me, Sailor nibs are far more scratchy on the paper than Pilot's. And in my turn, I'd say that Pilot nibs give me that exact feeling of a pencil!. The only nibs I could compare are on Sailor Pro Gear Slim (EF) and Wancher Japan Blue (M) vs Pilot 823 (M).

Excellent
I own and use on a regular basis gold nib pens by Pilot, Platinum, and Lamy. Sailor fountain pens are my absolute favorite. In my first hand experience, the sailor gold nib is as good as you will get in a <$300 pen. If you want to get a converter (not included) and use bottled ink, I find Sailor con...

New nib and finial design
Great price, features the new nib design that is missing the 1911 and has a different base imprint. Also note this is an F nib, not an HF. Included with the new nib design is the new anchor design on nib and finial. It’s not for everyone, but whatever floats your boat…

My GFs first fountain pen. She says “it’s interesting…” but doesn’t quite seem sold on them yet.
I have this pen, it’s beautiful but heavy. To me it’s not a first pen, particularly with a stub. It would feel really weird to her if she’s only used ball points, gel or fine liners. If you really want to hook her in get her a Sailor Laguiole, if you have cash to splash around a Sailor Pro Gear slim in a fine or medium nib point.
