most fountain pen aficionados would know what would motivate a pen
- ink capacity - converters are smaller than the barrel itself for ink. therefore, one needs to refill more often with a converter, especially with broader nibs. this eyedropper conversion makes the Vista carry 3ml of ink instead of just half a milliliter or so.
- it's prettier - i like seeing all that beautiful colored ink moving around in a demonstrator (clear) pen barrel.
- just for the fun of it - what else are you going to do with a pen except write? converting makes you do something else with it. it's playtime.

|feeble attempt at italic writing. needs a LOT more practice.|
|my regular writing works better with this 1.1 nib than a broad.|
