Sorry, I think this question must have been asked hundreds of times before but I simply cannot find recent information. It's been a few years since I last bought a good assortment of sacs and spare parts but now I'm running out of a number of sizes. Unfortunately, my shop closed it's doors by now and I'm looking for a new supplier. Could you recommend a good and reasonably priced source, preferably in Europe?

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

I've happily bought from them before having been recommended them by a serial repairer at the local club.

Ha ha, I wonder if you are referring to me, having critised information or lack thereof, supplied on another thread..

 

Back on topic, here is another reccomendation https://www.vintagef...ccessories.html 

I haven't compared prices, but buying my sacs direct from USA, I have heard nothing but good tings about these suppliers.

Sorry to dissapoint but nope not you :)

Although I did find the original posting I mentioned that you were quick to poo poo and it turned out you also dismissed the work of Fountainbel as it was his method of repair I was referring too. ;)

Thank you all for the info. Pendragon looks good to me, they have what I need. Would there be any benefit buying sacs directly from the US?

I'm buying in bulk, from the same USA suppliers as those mentioned previously, for use on customers pens, servicing/repairs.
To retail sacs and, repair supplies, would take up too much time, more power to those that provide this service.

I'm not sure, which US suppliers you refer to. Could you let me know an address you would recommend? Then I could make up my mind.

An endorsement from me too.  I don't have to buy sacs very often, but I always get them here.

Although I'm in the US, I've dealt with Pendragon multiple times and have never had a problem.

From Australia, Pendragons have been cheaper. This may be owing to the [Brexit-related] decline of the British Pound.


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others.
