The pen feels amazing when you are holding it, and the nib is extremely smooth partly bc its so broad. Having said that, I don't use it very much (really at all) as a highlighter bc it's too wet and ironically not broad enough. I am going to change the nib into a finer one and just use it as a pen. Lacking as a highlighter. Again, however, just holding it melts your heart at least in my hands.

Bought this for my fiance. While it's nice, the material feels rather cheap.
Got this pen last week. I'm super happy with it. It's my first Pelikan. I want the yellow now, would also like to see this in blue or red as well.
I was thinking of doing this. Just not at this price.
Or you can get it right here at 99.19 normally plus EMS shipping (from Japan usually 2-3 days to your door) https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/penroom/item/24785/ So the only deal I'm seeing here is the free US shipping.
I bought both the green and yellow as a set WITH the ink (yellow and green_ cases etc for a total of $120. I rarely use them but the deal was too good to pass up. Oh, it was free shipping and 30 day returns. The deal is all sold out now.

It was on eBay.

BTW these are very cheaply made and not worth $99 each. But everything for $120 made it worth it.

I have one of these in yellow - I filled it with blue ink and use it as a regular pen. The double broad lays down a rich wet line that I love. It's really not that thick, I would say 0.8mm. It's a gorgeous writer.

CBob I am very interested in the current drop for the Green. I like you would love to use normal ink in this pen. Have you had any difficulties? thom
I've got the yellow version of this pen and I love it. I use it daily for highlighting (or when I am bored during a meeting and want to take notes that others can't easily read). If you're looking for the same performance as a "normal" highlighter with one very wide line, you might be disappointed. But if you want a highlighter that is great for underlining or circling and making notes in the margin, this is unparalleled. The nib lays down a very thin line when you write upside down, great for fine detail work. Overall it's much more versatile than I expected.
I really like the yellow, but I don't think I can justify the green as well. A friend has the green pen and it's terrific - far more subtle in a meeting environment and you can change the ink if you want the traditional yellow highlighting. Can't go wrong either way if the price works for you!
Got mine today. Love the performance, together with a normal M200 it makes the perfect duo.
Sadly the following contents were missing: -Leatherette pouch -Owner’s manual -Manufacturer’s warranty

It's beautiful and I love it, I wish i could justify spending the money for something I will for sure never use.
Amazon says that its $105, but does this include the ink too? I wonder because I don't see them say it. and below it is advertising the ink. If you have to also buy the ink then $105 doesn't look so good. Anyone know?
After recently getting a standard M200, I really want the suiting highlighter now :o
Wow, what a cool idea. A fountain pen highlighter. Amazingly stylish.
I'm really glad Massdrop is bringing us unique products like this. That said, it's a bit rich for me, being such a specialized type of pen I don't use too often. But I appreciate that it's here on Massdrop.
BTW, I saw that Amazon had the green version of this for $117. Pricing on Amazon is so dynamic, who knows if any of these prices are still valid when you look them up? But it's good to know what they have been available for from Amazon as a reference.
I bought this one for 99 euros from a regular store back in 2010. This is not a good deal.

Double broad and the ink is the issue. So any pen with double broad (like a 78G) or any other Pelikan, and this ink or any other suitable ink (like Diamine Jade Green ) can serve as a highlighter. I have Jade Green on a Jinhao 599A for highlighting my notes but I guess it is more elegant to do it with a Pelikan? Don't know is this is at all a good bargain which is the purpose of Massdrop.
Noodler's also makes several different colors of highlighter ink which can be used in this pen i.e. blue, pink, yellow, green, etc.
This same pen, and ink, is listed on Amazon for $105.00

Not for nothing, but the link you posted goes to the pen selling for $155.95 from Pen Place. There is a different seller (Zega Pen) who is selling it for $117 shipped. Nota Bene - the $117 seller is a new seller on Amazon with no feedback and shipping is from Hong Kong.

They since sold out, there were only ~3 left at the 105 price on Amazon at the time I linked it, but it still shows the lesser price available.
da_vi_ci - why do you say that? Because you like this Pelikan and want it really to be a fountain pen with a F nib? It appears to be designed to be a highlighter which really should be broad to highlight, no? I also really like the looks of this pen, but I think Pelikan makes similar looking pens with nib sizes. Does anyone know whether there is anything different about this so called highlighter pen than other Pelikans, other than the BB nib?
It is so tempting to get this pen and then just change the nib to a fine.
da_vin_ci
Is it possible to change the nib?
Squee
I believe you should be able to change the nibs. I haven't looked into it though.
