I got it a few days back, but only managed to test it today. To my surprise, the back of the pen ("clicking mechanism") springed out and it is broken. I could not fix it and am very disappointed with this product. Anyone can tell me how to get a refund for this?

Got it today,inked it with the black ink that comes with it.
The ink is not as black as i hope,more like a ballpoint black not ink black,but it is still slightly darker than ballpoint black.As for then pen itself,it works fine,but i am having difficulty filling the converter without removing the nib,it is easier to fill it by just using the converter instead of the traditional fountain pen method which is use the nib to ink it.But on the good side at least when i do it the ink can flow down to the nib just after a few lines(at 1st the writing will be a bit light),and if i do the converter thing on some of the fountain pen i will have to shake the pen to get the ink to the nib.
As for the feel of the writing with the pen...It is just .....Just ok..Not epic but not bad,just not bad.. Better than any ballpoints that i have used,but not as smooth as some good rollerballs (above $200).I would rank it a bit more smooth than a Lamy Safari,but not a lot.If you like ballpoint but want to use different ink this is for you,if you're already using fountain pen don't expect this to be an improvement .Rollerball,maybe,but depends.
I haven't use it long enough to determine how it holds the ink(leaks,does it dry quick,ect.).But i can tell you the Stylus is useless,you have to push it down to get it to work which is not ideal.Just a real cheap thing,don't expect too much out of it.
BTW,the packaging is quiet nice for its price with many little papers and a few cartridges.
I used it for a few days now and it is holding the ink quiet well,it can be used as a good travel pen since it tends to leak less than fountain pen and you can still use your favorite ink on the go,but i do recommend using more lubricating ink,since the pen does make my hand tire after long writing session.Personally i would suggest don't use the ink that came with it since it is more on the dry side,use J.Herbin 1670 or iroshizuku,some Noodler is really good for this pen as well.

An update for the group! The vendor has informed us that some of the shipment is still enroute to their warehouse due to the congestion at the port of Long Beach. As soon as the vendor receives it they will overnight it to our warehouse.
We expect it to arrive at our warehouse this coming week. Our warehouse team will be standing ready to get these packed up and turned around as it is our first priority to get them to you.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 3/31 or sooner if something comes up.
Friend received his. I don't have a tracking number yet. Is it being separated into multiple groups?
My pen and ink bundle arrived safely and I have placed the pen into service. I started with the cartridges packed with the pen. I find that the pen writes wet and on some paper (like the pages of my DayTimer) the bleed on the ink is excessive but that tends to be a function of the paper quality more than the pen or ink.
So far I like this pen and its writing characteristics. The stylus works very well on both my Android phone and my HP Windows tablet. Time will tell how well this pen will perform in the future -- I will be glad to keep others informed.

One-month update? Feel free to post a writing sample if you'd like. I've been using this about every other day using bottled ink...maybe Noodler's Baystate Blue, but I honestly can't be 100% sure...and I like it, but found that it squeaks a little bit, so I'm going to try a more viscous ink.
Quick update for the group! The vendor has let us know that most of the group's order is currently backordered until the end of next week. It is our top priority to get your delivery out as soon as possible so our warehouse team will be standing ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.

Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Monteverde Engage Ink-Ball Bundle and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 3/20.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/17.
Can we do it without the ink bundle?
Very beautiful, refillable pen with a stylus. Too bad I'm cheap though. Otherwise, I would have definitely got on this drop. I want it, but I can't justify the purchase. Congrats to those that get it. I will say that I did see two reviews on Amazon about this pen having a potential leaking problem though.
C'mon -- you can get this exact pen on Amazon for $83 !! I thought the point of Massdrop was to pay less, not MORE!!!

This drop includes 2 bottles of ink. If you bought the ink separately it comes to about $12.50 for each bottle.

Can we minus the ink and save 12 bucks?
Monteverde's inks are quite nice for fountain pens. I've had good experiences with them. Haven't used this pen, however, so I have no info on it.
It's decent. The ballpoint tip was rough for me and mine stopped working after a couple of weeks . so I returned mine.
1st! :) So does anyone knows anything about this? It is a nice concept and i am sure at this price they are of good quality. But the ink that bundle with it,is it good?Anyone used them with fountain pens?

I can tell you about the pen, not the drop.
I bought the Engage at Goulet for about $88 (no ink). It's very attractive (real carbon fiber spun at Monteverde), heavy, and pretty long. I'm using fast dry inks with the ink converter (I write on Tomoe River paper), and it works just like a ballpoint. Sometimes I prime the ink converter, but I do that with fountain pens, and that's probably a personal preference.
The only thing I'm not totally in love with is that the tip doesn't emerge from the pen as far as other ballpoints do (probably a function to keep the ink wet), and results in a bit of a 'snub nose' writing experience. It's not as bad as I'm making it sound, but it's there. You get used to it, and the convenience of a ball point with the flexibility of fountain pen ink is well worth it.
It's my third favorite pen, and that's high praise coming from a fountain pen person.
