The writing experience is great. 580 is an excellent writing instrument for its price. Ink flow is smooth.
Nice pen. Smooth and wet. Not too heavy, good for long writing session (without posting the cap). At first it write too wet for my liking, but after writing for a few days (inked with Graf Von Faber Castell Gulf Blue) it become nicely wet. Like it.
Very wet and smooth
The writing experience of 580 is similar to Eco however is much more elegant, from the nib to the body, and the same problem is the cap cannot be posted very well. Btw, the balance of the pen doesn't feel good after posted. Personally, i would rather buy Eco if the elegance of pen is ignored, nevertheless, it's worth to buy under the pricing, would buy another soon...
