Complaints about dry writers are common enough, but a pen can also be too wet, at least for my tastes. I have this problem with the Wing Sung 3008, a piston filler whose grip section, feed, and nib have a design copied from the Lamy Vista/Safari series. I have inserted below a photo from someone else's review of the pen to show what it looks like (Wing Sung on the left, Lamy on the right). It comes with an EF nib, which is too fine for my liking. I find it most comfortable to use with a Lamy M nib. But no matter which nib I use (I have also used a Lamy F), the pen lays down too much ink for my taste. All shading is lost and the line tends to feather and is much darker than it would be if one were using the same ink in another pen.
Plainly it is the feed that is the cause of the excessive ink flow, not the nib. So my question is: Is there something that one can do to make a feed less wet?
