Blue resin and silver trim looks glossy enough, but the plain black plastic cap end is neither furnished with embossing or any silver trim, so sitting in your shirt pocket the look is that of an industrial fitting with a sad plastic cap. So not a classy pen. Which is pity, having traded it for a good USD500. The main resin of the body is another story, also not all good. Two issues: no mass, and translucent. The latter is obvious when uncapping the pen; even in poor indoor lighting the cap lights up from any ambient light close by, making it appear insubstantial and flimsy, much like a drinking straw.
So, does it work well? Yes and no. The nib is just awesome, with outstanding precision in the interaction with any reasonably good paper. Ink flow never falters or dries up. The nib writing ability is beyond exceptionally good. Still, the Optima is not a great writing instrument. Actually, I'd rate it even to some USD100-200 Parkers and Watermans I have in my collection. How is that? The problem is mass, or rather absence of mass. When moving the pen, there is not sufficient inertia to keep the pen moving in an even and fluid motion. The scratchy nib, which is great by itself, accentuates this problem. My writing deteriorates significantly with the Optima, compared to a Waterman Expert for example, which is less than half the price.
I admit to having made a mistake in fitting a fine (F) point nib on this rather chubby body. A fine nib encourages writing in smaller type on, small paper formats with tight line spacing, while the thick pen body shouts for larger fonts with wide line spacing. So the nib and the body are not working together.So my advice to anyone getting a fountain pen, please consider a possible interdependency between nib size in relation to pen girth: some combinations may not be working perfectly for you.
On that note, I’d really like to try out a broad nib on my Optima, expecting to see a considerable improvement in writing performance.
I own the Defi Xtreme as well. It’s a great lighter but the XX is definitely an upgrade with double flame.
High quality, excellent!
When I first took the pen from the box, I was impressed. It is a beauty thought. The pen writes as smoothly as I expected. A delight to use.

it's a great pen..I just bought another Aurora few days ago..thanks a lot Ted
I have had this watch for a week now and love it. It is a large, heavy watch so if you have a small wrist you may wish to reconsider. The finish and overall appearance, to my eye, is better than the photos. The textured aqua dial, polar ice-inspired , is the eye catching feature. I must have had 10 comments from people already. In summary, it is a beautiful watch that looks like it should for the price. Impeccable fit and finish, perfect function and packaging worthy of a premium product. Only 200 to be made - I'm glad I secured one!
I usually don’t like ballpoints but this was so beautiful. I LOVE it and would like to purchase another one.
Haven’t used it yet, but it certainly looks nice!
Excellent customer service. Very Fast International Shipping. Iguana Sell is very reliable and friendly. The pen is a beautiful matte black, the piston filler operates smoothly, the cap posts securely, it is light and balanced in the hand, the Italic nib looks amazing and writes well, just a little bit of feedback but not scratchy at all, extremely smooth when rotated and writing in cursive. Thank you Iguana Sell for all of your help.
This is a work of art! And it writes beautifully!
The M200 pastel green is a classy addition to Pelikan's line. Fabulous customer service from IguanaSell during these challenging times (due to Covid) make this purchase a very positive experience.
Beautiful color—back with Iguana's great customer service!
Iguana Sell kept us informed, shipped the item quickly and it was exactly as described.

Excellent,im very happy with the purchase.
Thank you Kamila and team!
It performs as expected
I am happy with my purchase
I love this pen! My line drawings have so much more energy, and that translates to the color. I would like to order several more! I recommend getting a refillable cartridge so you can use waterproof ink.
The pen is beautiful and posts securely, which is a feature that's important to me. It's a nice size for a smaller to average size hand.
Pelikan Rollerball Pen Souverän R400, Black/Blue, 997502
Very beautiful, well-balanced and smooth writing pen! Fountain pen with the convenience of ball point pen (just rotate to get the nib out - no need to take off the cap); it also comes with a converter to try a variety of inks!!
It's a very pretty pen, it feels a little cheap since plastic but still very pretty. The tip of the pen does make some scratch noises on paper, but that's the case for my other pen with EF tip.
The ben is both gorgeous and writes well with the stub nib.
Received the pen promptly from Iguanasell
