I have not had the pleasure to try the Penmaship. Wish I had though. I bought the EF Pilot 78G+ for my husband because it looks like the kind of pen he would like: black, slick yet unpretentious. He does not like attention trapping pens and this seemed like his thing. He has in fact used it daily since I switched the nib to F.
Will post a more complete review on the main page. Since there is the big switch to the CON-40 converter I think it is also worth talking about it.
Thanks for the info you posted about the 78G+ and I think a new thread about these pens is a great idea.
Above, you mentioned posting "a complete review on the main page". Could you please put a link to it in a post here?
I have taken the EF nib from a Wing Sung 659 ($9 Chinese pen purchased on Ebay) and mounted it
in one of my original 78G's with satisfactory results and use it most of the time now. On Rhodia dot or grid paper it has been a decent writer, neither scratchy nor too dry.
Below is a link to the Wing Sung 659 on Ebay. I am not affiliated to the seller in any way except by buying one from him.http://www.ebay.ca/i...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
