I was not intending to get this pen, the Hero 9215, but seeing that if I got a couple I can get free shipping on my lot I put them into the shopping cart and well that's the history, so any way , with some free time on hand I take this pen out to have a try and I found something very particular about this particular pen or pen model. Admitting; I have only two samples, one black and one white but they show the same, a very dry feed. By dry I do not mean it had problem delivering ink, in fact its the reverse it deliver ink in very consistent and controlled manner , the pens had Hero's no.5 nib which is also on plenty other models but on this model the pen write and write fine but I've notice a distant difference in feel when writing and finally I got to find out that the feed like to, well, feed the ink in a fashion that it would suffice for laying down the words and nothing else so to speak, a straight forward smear test show the pen lay down the ink so thin that it shown almost no smear. And I've try several different inks ( Parker, J.Herbin, Sailor Jentle and Hero's own 23X ) and they all shown the same
In fact its so thin that the FM width nib now write more like the F side instead. That said this pen write pretty smooth though. I was wondering if any of you encounter any another pen , Chinese or not, Hero or others, that behaves like this.
