Hi. I love the nib on the Hero 329 old version, but really hate the rubber ink reservoir, it is annoying on a number of levels, and depending on the ink (noodler's bulletproof black in particular), it can be quite problematic at times.   :wallbash:

 

I was going to post a topic on whether the Hero 329 can be fitted with a slide/piston converter, but I figure that might too involved, if even possible at all.  :doh:

 

Instead, anyone knows whether there is a Hero pen with the same exact nib as the 329 old version, but which can take a converter?  :unsure:

 

P.S.  I read before that the new 329 is not as good as the old, then later I read that the issue is that the nib on the new version is much smaller, and hence scratchier, which is the reason I would rather avoid such a nib in any new pen I buy. 

 

Thanks for all suggestions.  :thumbup:
