I'm using a newly acquired Jinhao X450.  This thing is a lead pipe compared to most of my pens. 

 

I'm also playing with a couple loaners - TWSBI 540 and Jinhao 599

With a bit of smoothing, I have found the Jinhao 599 to be a real treat. Use them for taking class notes, and have experienced good ink flow for speedy writing.  What has been your experience with the 599?

I am using a Baoke flighter. It is the best quality Chinese pen I have ever come across. Using this pen will make anyone forget about all other Chinese pen brands. Details are here :

Hero 901. Not happy with the nib. Considering purchasing a Knox K26. Pen has a classy gold/black look. Cost $2.80. Weight 50 grams. Do not have any Hero pens in my collection, so I thought I would experiment with the 901. Inked with a bit of Montblanc Blue/Black.

Hero 237 - I used Hero way back in primary school so using this pen brought back memories of the ones I had before. Inked with Aurora Blue the XF is about the same width as my Sailor F if not a touch wider. Now if only I can decide between the 100 and the 1000
