Received my newest member of the family today. The Baoer Black Rectangles (Skywalker, whatever) Very impressed with the overall design of this pen. (Even if it is a "copy")

Was impressed with the overall design. Pen has a nice feel in your hand. Good weight and nice balance when writing

Posted Image
Nice touch on Boaer's part by adding the Boaer name on the nib. Nice fit and finish

Posted Image
Love how the cap screws on both ends of the pen. Nice and secure when posted

Posted Image
Comes with converter that holds a nice amount of ink.

Wish I could post better pictures as these were taken with the BlackBerry as they do this pen no justice.

Overall I am happy with my purchase. I fell in love with the pen that this is copied after. Just cannot afford it at this time. This pen will do for now. I would reccomend this pen to anyone who wants a daily writer on a shoe string budget. Great pen for a student needing a decent pen that won't break the bank.

Thanks for the photos and info. I bought one of these some time ago and haven't tried it yet. Good to know it performs satisfactorily.

This was my first attempt at a review. Wasn't sure what to include so I just went with what I though....

Nice review. Is it a fine nib or a medium?

uncle red, mine has a M nib.


svfd757, your review is fine. a bit more info on the nib size, how the clip works, packaging, etc is also good to have... and lets not forget writing samples!!! ;) we'll be waiting on that.

Thanks for the review. What I love about mine is the way the threaded cap posts.

The pen has a medium to fine nib. I didn't provide a writing sample due to the fact that I have TERRIBLE hand writing. I enjoyed writing the review and might take another stab at it with some of my other pens. Maybe..... Thanks for the positive feedback!!!

I rate it as fairly light yet not flimsy.

Thanks to this review, I had a little impulse shopping with some Chinese pens. I hope they all work okay. I got this pen, a Baoer 388 and a Jinhao X750. I got them all for cosmetic reasons, but the reviews have been mixed on all of them. Crossing my fingers.

If you buy your Chinese pens from reputable dealers you have a much better shot at ALL of them being good.

Both Baoers I had were identically good (I gave one away just 'cause). I never had a bad Hero 616 yet do not doubt the reports of others.

I like mine but I have to be careful if I post the cap. It feels like it could be cross threaded rather easy if I am not careful.

The Skywalker I got from Todd at ISellPens and I've ordered from him before (my LAMY Vista came from him nearly 4 years ago!). I got the two others from dealers that had very high feedback on eBay (new_trust1 and danrong2008). I'm assuming all three are reputable. *crossing fingers*.
