As a fan of the lowly Preppy ... I sort of think the opposite ... "why get a metal bodied Preppy that I can't eyedropper?"

My question to those who own both ... is there an actual improvement in performance with the Plaisir? I know that the Preppies on my desk that have sat for a while will NOT write perfectly on the first stroke ... (just checked ... BBB wrote perfectly ... Heart of Darkness and Nikita wrote well after a second of empty scratch ... Kung Te-cheng wrote okay after two seconds of empty scratch ... Baystate blue and #41 brown didn't write, but did okay after being left to lie horizontal while the other pens were tried. All pens normally stored nib-up.)
IIRC, it's the same nib ... but is it the same feed?
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
