Saw something similar while looking for a replacement pen for my samsung notebook pro 9.
And the only guy who reviewed on amazon is really happy with the pen. Found one in yahoo auction japan and bidding it now
If anyone wants to buy me this pen, they are more then welcome to. https://www.montblanc.com/en-us/col...varotti-limited-edition-888-fountain-pen.html. Its one of their cheaper models so it shouldnt ding the wallet to bad.
The cruise collection version is relatively affordable. I think it came out '14-'15. Has the s-pen emr styluses changed where these won't work now on a Galaxy Tablet s4? I know they have tweaked the s-pens in the past. I think this one came out along with the Galaxy Note 4 phone.
I'm not fully positive....but I suspect it should work fine. The nib pack reassures me the most since they are the same nibs/tips that came with the Bamboo Smart Pen and Zbookx2 Pen....both of which work perfectly fine on current s-pen devices. With the Tab S3/Galaxy Books/Note 8, Samsung made the nibs thinner...like an actual tooth pick.....but the old nibs from the Note 5 era should still work perfectly without an offset or gimped pressure. I would still however fully recommend the Zbookx2 Pen instead....in regards to S-pen flavor of EMR.....that pen is the king in my book.....and with my Book 10.6
Thanks for the vote for the Zbookx2 Pen. I've been looking for a more substantial s-pen. Can I ask where you've seen the montblanc s-pen nib pack? Edit: I just noticed your inlaid picture. From what site did that come from?Thanks! They do look quite a bit fatter though.
Edit 2: Just found an old Bamboo Feel stylus, and you are right, the tablet s4 s-pen nib is svelte compared to it. It must of changed in the timeframe you stated.
Just as an update, I ordered one of the cruise collection versions. It was a good price for a rollerball and a s-pen. I'll let you know in a few days how it turns out. I'm kind of a stylus nut. My favorite so far was a Bamboo Feel Carbon which isn't made anymore.
Wacom seems to have the Bamboo Stylus Feel2 in the UK market in white and black....go figure..

Cool. Too bad they don't have the carbon model. It was much heavier than the plastic feel models. That's one thing I'm worried about the montblanc I ordered: the weight. I believe the cruise collection might be a bit on the lighter side. I like the weight of the ball point montblanc I own (which I also got at a good price but it is authentic since montblanc repaired the clip at one point.). That montblanc is from the standard collection, maybe called meisterstuck or something of the sort. If this is much lighter, I may not like it. I should be getting it in a few days so I'll give my review.
I got the cruise collection Montblanc pen the other day. As I feared, it is a bit on the lighter side. If you don’t like your styluses with some weight, it’s fine. I would prefer a little more heft to it. The tip is circa the Note 4 so it works without an offset on a Samsung Tablet S4 and probably all modern Samsung s-pen devices. The tip is a bit fatter than the latest revision nibs. Some may prefer it this way as recent nibs are a little too thin. I’ll see how I like it after using it for a few more days.
