Good review. Can't beat this pen on value for the price.

Nice review Thanks! Reg the stoppage that you encountered, the feeders are made of ebonite and will need to be primed well. Once primed, the ebonite feeder works like a champ. Here are some filling instructions:

thanks Amarjit!

 Completely agree! though I still need to ink the Wality 71JT. Hopefully will be another worthy Wality

Thanks Hari. I actually used your instructions and it seems to be working fine since then; I was a little apprehensive reading mehandritta's bleg about his Wality 71JT nib but hopefully I face no such issues!

good handwritten review... nothing beats handwritten.... u write what u feel while writing with pen... so connected....

 

Also best thing about ebonite is that the feeds can be widened at your convenience.. there are few youtube videos about the same...

Also 71JT is well balanced pen... without posting... for its size... you dont require cap posting....

 

lastly as i said nibs are hit and miss... My 69 A nib and my 52 PD nibs were good enough....

Thank you sir! Someone praising my handwriting is a truly first
One question on the YouTube video - would it be possible to share a good example, maybe a a reference thread for archiving?
