Waterman 52 1/2V Red Ripple – Good / Super Flex

Waterman 52 1/2V Red Ripple – Good / Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52 1/2V in Red Ripple hard rubber is in nice condition. There is a slight bit of fading on the hard rubber but not much. The imprints are pretty crisp. The gold-filled trim is also quite nice. There is little bit of brassing on the top edge of the cap band. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a very soft and smooth writing F/M (0.5mm) that is quite wet. It has a little bit of a stubbish feel. The flex on this is pretty good. It has some nice range going from 0.5mm to 1.6mm. It lacks a little bit of responsiveness and is really in between a high “good flex” and a low “super flex” in my grading system. It’s a great Waterman in the portable 52 1/2V design.
