MontBlanc StarWalker...yay or nay?

Hey guys and gals, Iím looking for a new weekender pen. I was thinking the MontBlanc StarWalker ballpoint either black/platinum or midnight black/gunmetal.

Any pros or cons?

YUP! I left it at a Starbucks after signing a bill. Went back and they said they never saw a pen!

I did buy another thinner one (see picture). I like it and haven't managed to lose it yet.

I do write with a ballpoint 75% of the time. Paperwork at work. My fountain pens bleed through it all the time.

I have one and frankly I use my 15 dollar Parker jotter more, I find it too bulky and even a bit cheap feeling for a 300+ pen.

Have you tried rollerball ? Itís a good halfway option between the two. Doesnít need the pressure a ballpoint does and puts down a nice wet line more akin to a FP.

Agree with above post. Rollerball's are great. I can't use a ballpoint anymore, rollerball is always my go-to. I usually leave the fountains at home unless we're going to a nice place for dinner.

If you like using ball points, like the looks of MB Starwalker, can afford the MB Starwalker then get the MB Starwalker BP.

I love rollerballs. But when I picked up this ceramic Starwalker extreme bp I was really impressed with its smoothness. Itís a hefty pen but well balanced.
