Before I get accused by  dead horse experts of beating another dead equine, I would like to ask if anyone has done a side by side comparison of a Parker 61 and a Hero 100. Or maybe a Parker 51 vs Hero 100? 

Thank you

Thanks! That review is about 14 years old. Much has changed. I am not even sure that the Hero 100 is really a Hero 100. The Hero 100's that are now available (and have been for at leas 8 years) don't have a ink window, and have integral aerometric systems (you cannot access the rubber bladder easily). Very different from what's described in the blogpost.
