Beide is a brand from Zhenhai, Ningbo, Zhejiang.

That's interesting. I finally found one reference that said they were made by the Shanghai Jinlai Stationary Company, LTD. It was printed in the lid of the pen box.

Maybe it is Beide‘s Branch.

I have recently seen the Hero pens on aliexpress listed as "You" or "You Ping"... Any idea what this is about?

Nice list, and something I was wondering about. The length of the list surprises me. In a communist country I just didn't expect so many businesses.

I own a Crocodile and one not on your list, a Huashilai.

They're both attractive pens. The Crocodile took a few weeks to get writing, and some of the gold color flaked off the nib, but it does now write nicely. The Huashilai looks expensive and feels expensive, but the writing doesn't thrill me.

I assume it's because there is  lot of writing for students. My hands cramp thinking of the writing I did in elementary Chinese school,

The list is long enough (although Hero still isn't there), but even more mind-boggling for me is the number of different models under each brand. I went to the Hero site recently and saw only a handful of models available yet an hour on eBay searching produced 39 models. I wish I could understand the finer points of what I was intending to buy.

I wonder if the nibs have been developed to their optimum long ago and the different prices and models merely reflect plastic or steel construction and the appearance.

Chinese fountain pen Mfr had long develop their own characteristic approach to how a nib need to be, for their language of course. which is quite different than Latin based language in writing and execution. But to that since the language had variation in writing and " hands " ( aka style of writing ) there is equally different nib that tailor.

Yes, I understand the points you made, but all we are told when viewing pens for sale is: Fine or Extra Fine, or 0.38

I wish there was an explanation as to why we should go for a Jinhao 992 rather than a 559. Is it simply the look?

Here's a Rainbow 202 - pretty sure it's vintage. It writes surprisingly well, too.

You say Wing Sung is no longer in existence? I see pens labeled Wing Sung all over EBay? Just curious. Or did I read that wrong?

The original Wing Sung company went out of business in the 1990s, but as has happened with many old USA brands (e.g., Sheaffer, RCA) others purchased the right to use the brand name and attach it to products bearing no design connections to the originals.  Wing Sung is unusual in that pens made under that name today come from multiple suppliers and share nothing in common except the label.
