So I picked up a Sailor ProColour from the Post Office this morning. (I had ordered it, I wasn't just randomly picking things up.)
The main reason I got it was this thread on FountainPenNetwork, a terrible addiction-enabling site. Much as I like my Lamy Safaris, I was looking for a small step up. Specifically I had heard that Sailor pens had very fine nibs. This turned out to be very much the case. It has an extremely sharp line, but the ink flow is still excellent; it writes very smoothly indeed.
I am currently using it in my Moleskine as my daily pen, and if anything goes wrong with it, I shall be sure to say. The only thing so far that I find a little odd is that the plastic *does* look pretty cheap. I know that the price has been kept down by using this sort of construction, so that almost all of the cost is nib and mechanism, but I'm sure it could have looked a *bit* better. Not embarrassing though I suppose, and less likely to be stolen.
