Pardon the sloppiness (and embarrassing typos everywhere, even the first word ), but I wanted to get out this review as soon as possible because I'm so excited about this pen.
I've had a lot of bad luck with Chinese pens (Hero's have been anything but my hero), but so far no Jinhao nib has ever failed me and their quality seems to be getting even better.
Here are my comments and some writings samples about the new Jinhao 992. It's currently available in all colors on Ebay and probably places like Aliexpress as well.
Writing sample on a cheap little notepad:
- Quality construction
- Superb converter that holds a good amount of ink
- Toothless smooth nib
- Flawless flow
- Nib and feed easily removable for thorough cleaning (perfect for using those troublesome yet beautiful Noodler's inks)
- Cap posts well (no slipping or popping off)
- Screw on cap
- Great color selection
- The price!
- Unbalanced when posted
- Might be too small for larger hands when not posted
