    Do you have bad experience about ?

 

 

OK, let's start:

  • bad start
  • skipping
  • scratchy
  • tines alignment
  • felt apart after 1-2 months
  • paint off as well

Of course, not all the pens have all this problems, but at least one...

Dear hity,
The vast array of Chinese pens cannot be assessed as a whole. There are pens bad but cheap, also moderately priced but very good ones.

It is not correct to generalize all Chinese pens as bad. It varies from company to company and even between brands of various companies.

 

I have come across many Chinese pen brands which perform consistently well, if not good. Jinhao, Baoer, Luoshi to name the top 3 in my list.

 

Hero pens have been the biggest let down as they have been the "premium" pens when i was growing up. Apart from the Hero 616 i have been using since quite sometime, all others just fell apart in my hands even though they are used just as desk pens.

The only Chinese pen I am very familiar with is Picasso. I have owned several and the quality has been outstanding, especially considering the under twenty-three price tag I paid for most. Some of the smoothest nibs I have ever used.

I think the pens that HITY mentioned are those of old brand such as Hero, Wingsung and Golden Star.

Right ,I feel that maybe some of pens with bad quality and cheap appear on the market . The brand Golden Star I haven‘t own !It is bad ?On the whole , Hero have a good reputation on our native market !
