Jason. even a $500 fountain pen can write like dog dodo. Not knowing your experience with fountain pens I'll ask why does it suck? Did you clean/flush the nib before use? Did you examine the nib for alignment or attempt any tuning? The nib and feed should come out but, not sure if the Virage is a #5 or #6 nib.

If you are not experience with Fountain Pens check out Brian Goulet of "Goulet Pens" on YouTube, He has a series called Fountain Pen '101' which goes through the naming, care, feeding and enjoyment of fountain pens. Great info but be careful if you go to his website/online store as Fountain Pens can be come another addiction.
