Another cheap Chinese pen arrived from eBay today. (I have a thing for buying cheap Chinese pens with hooded nibs.) I got the Hero 736 for about 6 bucks with free shipping. It's very well built, has a nice heavy feel, and comes with a sliding-piston converter. (It's a SUPER-cheapo converter but slides very smoothly.)

Anyway, all the rest of my review is in the image (which is sideways until I can figure out how to fix it!)

Nice review. That section makes more sense on a bullet pen.

I have almost the same pen in black. My daughter is using it now. It is a tough pen.
