What nib sizes are on the Plumix set?
In the details it states the CON-40 is extra; in the product description it states the converter is included. Which is it MassDrop, and for the love of everything can you PLEASE hire some freaking editors???

The piston-style CON-40 converter is extra, but every Metropolitan fountain pen includes a CON-20 style aerometric converter as well. We've updated the specs to reflect this.
Too bad this drop restricts the metropolitan to the animal collection. I would definitely be more interested in either the standard black/silver/gold or the retro pop pens.
Amon-Rukh
I agree with Amon-Rukh that I would rather have the Metropolitan in something other than the animal collection. If the Metropolitan was offered with more choices (other than the animal collection) I would jump on this drop. Perhaps the animal collection did not sell well and they are dumping them?

If you choose to add the optional CON-50 converter, this will add $5 to the subtotal (before shipping or taxes). If you didn't add the optional converter but it still charges you $5 extra, then you should report it to Support.

I am excited to get this set for my young (10 yo) writer/artist. I have always used a LAMY, so this seemed like a great economical way to start her love of fountain pens. I almost bought a set for myself it is such a great deal!
oh bloody hell just when massdrop ships fountain pens to Canada the currency exchange bends us over the counter eh?

could not have been said better
I'm a big fan of the Plumix for a cheap refillable fountain pen. I use them with the Extra Fine Nib. Not so much of a fan of the Varsity. I have it in the medium nib and it is just too wet for me. The Plumix in EF nib is scratchy and does run dry sometimes though.
Good news group. We’re glad to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you. Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

My order arrived yesterday. I haven't used a fountain pen in decades. Started playing with the disposable Pilots. They seem nice, but the tip is a bit broad for my taste. Usable, but I usually use the Pilot .5mm pens. For future reference, what should I look for in a fountain pen to get that kind of thin line?
Second question: do you have pointers to lessons on beautiful penmanship for these pens?

Just for reference, The Well-Appointed Desk [1st link] has some printing guides (and a lot of references and useful stuff like the refill guide, so bookmark it). Then there are the guide sheets provided by IAMPETH [2nd link]; they are calligraphy-oriented though. And then there are a lot of printable templates, either ready-to-download [3rd & 5th] or customizable [4th & 5th].
