Conklin Endura – Super Flex/Wet Noodle

Conklin Endura – Super Flex/Wet Noodle – (On Ebay)

Here is a gorgeous Sapphire Conklin Endura ring top in superb condition. The body of the pen is beautiful. The color is fantastic. There very little sign of wear. The gold-filled trim has no brassing. Imprints are crisp and easily readable. And it’s a gorgeous color. The 14tkt. gold made it Toledo Conklin nib is a beauty. It’s a rather wet and smooth writing XF normally, but it has fantastic flex. I’ve graded this on the border between “super flex” and “wet noodle.” It’s really close to a “wet noodle.” It might be just a tad on the firm side of “wet noodle,” but it’s not a firm flex at all. The range of flex on this is awesome going from XF (0.3mm) to a massive BBBB+ (2.3mm) without much pressure. It also has very good responsiveness. It’s a top class flex nib. And it’s on a beautiful pen in collector’s quality condition.
