Personally, I do not lie any PSI FP kits in this price range. I would suggest the Jr. Gent 2 and any of the stainless kits.....if you can find them.

Barea New series pen is very nice pen for $9. The Craftusa Americana roller ball in rhodium can use a platinum nib from Exotics blanks and is my best seller. I also found some great pens at Timberbits in Australia good prices and free shipping when buying more than $80.
Fountain pens are back!

I've only turned 2 styles so far, both from PSI, the Tycoon (in your price range) and the Majestic Jr. (higher than your range)

I didn't like the size, weight, and feel of the higher priced Majestic Jr.
I did like the look, feel, and weight of the Tycoon, plus I liked the all metal parts included in the kit,
Haven't done any of the other cheaper kits as I didn't care for some of the plastic parts,
to me it made the pen appear cheap, which it evidently is when looking at pricing.
I can't charge higher prices for pens that are made from plastic........
Now, if I can replace some of the plastic parts with wooden ones, then the kits might seem more attractive :)
