What was the price in earlier drops? I see someone below mentioned $19.99, was that the lowest drop price previously?
Yeah whats with the price increase?
Best price now $7 higher than last drop. No longer a great deal.. 🤔
I have five of these pens. Need three more to complete my set. Does anyone know if I can buy just the converters from this drop if I'm also buying three of the pens?

http://www.wetpaintart.com/super5-fountain-pen-ink-converter.html This site sells converters, which show up when you search the site for “Super5” All my Super5 pens have standard converters in them.... You can buy standard interntional converters much cheaper from online stores or you can buy a pack of them on ebay.
Cool budget pen, but drop only saves you a whopping 91 cents, unless I'm missing something

Great news - thanks!
I have one Super5 Dublin rollerball and a Super5 fountain pen - I love both and wouldn't mind a few more in the collection. However, the delays I'm reading below makes me leering of joining the latest drop.

Shortly after the issue was brought to light, the order I made previous was cancelled and I was refunded what I paid. I wonder how many people from the previous drop actually got their orders.
I contacted MD last month and here is the reply. Not much info.

Interesting, I got a similar reply from Ava on 23 October, but with more info:
Your concern is understandable and I have flagged this to our logistics team. They are currently looking into what is going on with the delay and once they have more information, they will update the group via email and by what I could gather from logistics, some of the orders were being delivered with lesser quantity than ordered so we took extra time to make sure all orders were being shipped in good standards. Thank you for your patience.
I only ordered one pen so I'm not sure what that means to me.

I ordered just one pen also. It sounds like some have been shipped to MD, if I read this right. Don't think I'll order a Super 5 if it comes up again.
Any update?
Haven't seen an update for this is drop yet. Is there an issue?

here is a link to a review I saw of this pen with a writing sample http://www.wellappointeddesk.com/2015/01/review-super5-0-5mm-italic-stub-fountain-pen/
Writing samples?
Not even sure I need this, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tip everyone that committed at $19.99. :D

Sweet... Thanks everyone ! Your purchases made mine an eve better deal ... Yay for us :) @cyviloq ... I wonder how many of us really need it... but if one must have an addiction - I am glad I prefer inks over drinks :)
Will this accept the Lamy z24 converter?

Description says standard c/c so I would guess not.
Does anyone have the Super5 with a 1.5 (Broad) nib ? It is the only nib size I don't have and am interested in how the 1.5 writes. More specifically - does it provide line variation and is it tipped or stub-like ?? Thanks - I don't have a red or white one ... yet.... :O

Yes that was how I interpreted as well.
Very glad to hear the 1mm is super smooth, that's the one i got. :)
Can't wait--hope this one is of the quicker massdrop variety. STILL waiting on my Diplomat Traveler.
writerstephen
Ahh... Well, hopefully you'll forget all about it and it will be a fun surprise when it arrives !
Love it! It has replaced my Pilot Vanishing Point as my EDC. Cap fits nice and snug, no play at all. Always stored nib side up, and no issues with it drying out, even after a few days of inactivity.
0.5mm Calligraphy nib w/ Kawico converter J.Herbin 1670 - Stormy Grey
Pretty crappy pen. There are better pens for the price. Mine had plastic chips from the mold. The mold joints are unseemly.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

I was not aware that some of the caps do not "click" when closed. All 5 of my Super5 pens came from MD. I only converted one to eye dropper style, with some limited success. Great ink capacity as an ED, unless I over load it, and then it tends to leak all over the place until the ink level has dropped enough. I ended up scribing a line on the pen body so that I do not overfill it again. I have not had any cracking issues, unlike my J. Herbin pens. I had not thought of playing mix-n-match with color parts ... hmmm ... might need a couple more for experimentation.
I got mine on the last drop. Writes nicely. Does anyone else have an issue with it drying out fast? If I don't is it over the weekend when I get back to work on Monday, it doesn't want to write. Using diamine Matador ink.

@SteveF8528 @j-e-g I'm the one with the cracked cap j-e-g. And yes, that's how it cracked. If you look inside the cap, you see these 'ribs'. They provide friction to keep the cap in place. The snap-on effect comes courtesy of the white cylinder in the top end of the cap, but it does not provide much grip; it only serves to isolate the nib. The ribs inside the cap, however, clearly differ from pen to pen. The caps which do not rotate easily have thicker ribs. You can even see their rub marks on the grip section. I guess one could sand them down if it's too much of an issue.

Ahh - my mistake, I thought Steve had the cracked cap... I prefer the nice snap and click of the cap. I dunno, makes me think the cap is on securely. While it may make no difference in terms of the nib drying out, I feel like the snug fit (pen not turning when capped) that too, makes me feel the nib/ink is sealed from the room air. Then again, I have no had a problem with mine drying out. After 2 weeks of being away, they started right up.... so I'll be happy with that - Squeaky threads and all :)
I too have several of these Super5 fountain pens. Would be nice if MD could arrange a package with different color end caps. My white body pen I converted it to an eye dropper style with some success (little leakage if I over fill it). The white body is translucent enough that with darker inks, I can see the ink level if I use a bright light. Different color end cap would be nice so that I could indicate what color ink is in the white Super5 if I can't remember. My eldest daughter is learning calligraphy and I have been using a few of these Super5 pens to help her practice. I am amazed at how much ink calligraphy practice eats.
It's nice to see this drop back so soon. However, MD should have offered an option to add end caps. This would make the drop more interesting to members, like me, who already have a bunch. I'd love a black end cap for my Arctic.
Just received my shipment. Pretty barebones packaging, but shipped in a padded envelope so all is well. FYI for folks who don't know - each pen ships with a filler empty cartridge, and a full cartridge tucked in the body - that may be sticky, so it may require a firm shake to dislodge it. I am so pleased to have these again - I bought one in the last Drop and i was very good daily user, but I lost it and have missed it ever since.

If the bottom cartridge gets stuck. The end cap can be unscrewed. In fact, Super5 offer replacement end caps in various colors, for a bit of modding, one presumes.

Are the "calligraphy" nibs stubs or italics? It doesn't look like they're tipped, but people in the comments are describing them as stubs.
debrowne
I guess you could call them italics. They are certainly not ball-shaped like conventional nibs, but they are not straight stubs either. They have rounded edges. Basically they write like conventional nibs but with beautiful line variation. Keep in mind, however, that for the 0.5 nib the variation is very understated.
Does it take international long cartridges and two short ones, or just a single short one?
migla9
It is a little fiddly. To place long cartridges you must first remove the cap at the upper end of the pen. Then place the cartridge, screw on the barrel and at last the cap from the upper end. You can place two short cartridges without problem.
