Conklin Endura -Good Flex

IMG_5553

Conklin Endura – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a Conklin Endura made of hard rubber in a red/ black woodgrain pattern. It is in fair condition. The hard rubber is faded a bit. The imprint is decent, though “ENDURA” is a bit faded. Still readable. There is some brassing on one section of the band, and a few spots on the clip. The lever is good. There are bite marks at the end of the barrel (see pic), and some on the top of the cap as well though they are much lighter. The 14kt. Conklin Endura nib is a smooth and very wet fine with flex. This nib is interesting. It flexes all the way to 2.0mm and has great range of flex, but it is really too stiff to be a super flex. It it didn’t have such great line variation, I probably would have graded it as medium flex.
