Hello,

The Fifth Avenue has a reputation for a really bad ink capacity, but I'm honestly a little unsure as to why that is. Whenever I restore a Fifth Avenue, I'm always able to put a size 16 sac, of the same length as a standard Skyline's, in there along with a full size breather tube. There is clearly enough space to fit the regular amount of ink in there, so what design flaw is causing this reputation for terrible capacity?

I have three different sized 5th Avenues: Stowaway, Ladies, and Standard. The don't have any problems with ink capacity. They're nice writing pens.

They're fantastic writers! Which is why I was a little surprised that there was so much commentary about its bad ink supply. Seems like that might be a bit of a myth, then.
