Rexall RGP Pen – Wet Noodle (On Ebay)

Here is a very interesting third tier pen. Rexall did no manufacture high end pens, but somehow this one has been kept in like new condition. The body of the pen is 1/40 14kt. which classifies as Rolled Gold Plated (RGP). There are no real dings or scratches on the pen that I could find. It really looks to have hardly ever been used. The Warranted 14kt. nib on this pen is most interesting. It writes normally as a very wet, soft fine. The flex on this comes very easily, however. Like near paintbrush easy, which is why I’m classifying it as a wet noodle. The feed, however, doesn’t do a fantastic job of keeping up. If you know what you are doing, and you are using a good, wet ink (like the Tsuki-Yo I used for the pics) you can do some nice writing without a lot of railroading. But turn your wrist while flexing or use a drier ink and you will get railroading. Still a very interesting third tier wet noodle in great condition.
