Incredibly helpful, thank you. Reaffirms my recent 149 acquisition. And great to know I could also play softball with it in case I forget my bat.

Very nice!
One more reason to stick with the 149.

Thanks for the pictures.  And I would have thought the size differences would have been smaller between each size.

Same here, I am enjoying my 144.  And now I can see that I do not need (and likely would not use) a 149.  Thank you!

And it confirm my thoughts (That the 149 is not a lot longer than the 146 but that the difference is mainly in the girth) and i didn't thought the difference of lenght was so short between the 142 and the 144...

I saw the Jinhao MSG series:

 

(l - r)  159  with beef

 

         156  with pork

 

         154  with chicken

 

         152  with tofu

I didn't want to be a pig about it so I ordered the beef and chicken with wonton soup and steamed rice.

what I would like to see is a line up of:

114, 142, 144, 145, 146 (old) 146 (new), 147 and 149

that would be a complete set, wouldn't it??

Well, there is also 144 new and old as well as many different sizes of 146 and 149.

I do not have all of the variations, but this might give you an idea. Left to right: 114, 142, 144, 145, 146 (early 80's), 146 (modern), 147.

When I purchased my 147 Traveler, I was expecting it to be the same size as my newish 146.  However, to my surprise, it is noticeably larger in all dimensions, a very nice substantial sized and writing pen.  I do note that it was billed as a 'fine', by my knowledgeable seller, but to my eye it closer to a medium. Not complaining, just saying.

Once again I am confirmed in my belief that I do not need a 149, this is big enough.  I agree with a previous poster, it would be nice to see a comparison photo of the full family of pens, maybe grouped by era.

 

PS- Looking at orfew's photo, maybe my 146 is a NOS pen from the '80s, not a modern one.

Does anyone have the size differences between the 1980s 146 and the later version? It looks like a longer cap.

Thanks
