I have a con-70 that came with my Namiki Bamboo. It's nice that it has a larger capacity (0.7ml) than most converters. However I'm not a fan of the pump mechanism that blows some ink back into the bottle, and also can sometimes spray / create bubbles.

 

It works fine, but can anyone suggest an alternative converter, that has a conventional screw mechanism that will fit the Bamboo? I beleive the CON-70 fits the Pilot Custom. I don't need the 0.7 ml capacity, given the little writing I do at work.

 

Thanks!

Any Pilot converter will fit, including the CON-40, which has the conventional screw mechanism:

CON-50 and CON-20 can be found on aliexpress.

 

Blowing ink back into the bottle indicates, to me, incorrect technique. CON-70 filling tutorial from Mr Goulet.
