There is a Hero 7022 that sells on eBay for about $10US and this pen has received much praise at FPN. If only to avoid misunderstandings, I wanted to say that there is another Hero 7022 that sells for about $2US and seems to have nothing to do with the more expensive one.
No, they are not striped. The red is a candy apple red and that is just how it reflected light. The blue is a somewhat metallic blue. The black looks like glossy enamel. White is also available. I think they look nicer than most Chinese pens. The red is a real standout, the blue distinctive, and the black conservative. None are over the top like some pens from China. Fit and finish is excellent for the price. The pens are mostly metal but weigh in at about 33g with ink which is light for metal pens and just inside my own comfort range.
The clip is unusual looking and is unusually attached.
Nibs are sold as medium and vary from there to fine averaging about a US fine. They write quite smoothly out of the wrappings. The nib is springy, but it is a very stiff spring, so though you can make it bend quite a bit without damage, in use it is nearly a nail.
Very unusually, the bodies seem happiest with Waterman or long international cartridges, or Hero's own cartridges. They are less happy with Jinhao, and short internationals are too fat. These pens usually ship with a converter but I used cartridges in mine. There were no problems initially and when I left them for two weeks and picked them up again all three started writing immediately -- a very good performance. Not so good was posting; it was great on the blue one but the cap just fell off if I tried to post it on the other two pens.
All in all I would say these pens are excellent value for money at under $2US postpaid. I don't think quality will be an issue but peculiarities may. If you want to use cartridge ink you will not have a lot of options, and the fact that two out of three won't post is a big drawback for my tastes.
