Wing sung 3003 

 

 Really like the body on this model , much better than other fountain pens .. Just feels more robust - stronger - not fragile at all .

The NIB on this one is NQR , but  I tested it in anyways ..

 

 Very scratchy , canted 45 deg right it became horrible , tore into the paper ...

Same thing using the pen inverted ...

 

 Doing circles the pen ran dry on one side ...

 

24 Hours latter ..

It started fine , but I got out the 2000 wet and dry and started polishing the NIB ..

It did write better but was never really good ..

So I just kept polishing till I destroyed the NIB ...

 

 I did have a spare nib , unfortunately it was another fine NIB so write scratchy , but I let this one be ...

Not sure the review is fair as the NIB was NQR , but hey , this is how it was sent to me ..  

 

 I really wish I could buy 0.7 NIB's , but I have ordered some spare NIBS ( medium I hope )  ...  

Such a shame that a nice body is attached to a rubbish NIB ..

Did you check for tines misalignment before hitting the abrasive paper? Mine was scratchy and dry, but it was just a matter of tines misalignment and opening the tines at the tip a bit.

Yes , I polished to death because of the bent nib ..

I got it ok , but decided to just keep going .. 

Really wanted to see what would happen if I went crazy .. 

It got to a certain point , but never beyond to good ..  Was acceptable I guess ..  But hey , cheap pens are for learning ! 

I have ordered some nibs ( Medium ) , I am pretty sure this was a .38 NIB , so a .5 NIB could be sweet ?

When I use this pen I inevitably dirty my hand. :(
