How wuch do you open your WingSung 3013 during writing?

Saw a picture on Ebay where a gap of around 1cm between barrel and opened knob is visible. With my Pilot Custom 823, 1 mm is largely enough.

Thank you.

with any of these, so long its enough to get the shut off valve open up then its enough, I've try the 3013, I've found that it require only minute amount of taking up the valve off the seating position ; definitely not needed that whole cm of draw ; am still debating inside if I should get one ... ah decision, decision, decision

It writes OK, just tried it, but nothing special. I am not so fond of the design. So I am not buying a second one. I might reconsider if I can fit a #6 nib in it. Haven't checked yet.

I want a pen with a flex nib.

I did not open the knob even one bit, seems to work without any issues though.

The design of the 3013 is somewhat different than other vac-fillers I've used. Notably, the "mouth" of the secondary ink chamber in the section is much broader than that of the likes of a TWSBI or PenBBS vac, and the stopper is correspondingly large. I think that may account for the reason why you only need to unscrew the piston a very small amount.
