In most pictures online, the yellow in S9 looks quite bright, not mustardy.  I'm hoping that's the case.

a really nice looking pen and a nice photo too

This page is pretty good for viewing the rods, especially the short videos.  Notice how bright the yellow in the Yellow/Black Ripple looks?

yes, looks pretty bright.

you must remember nonetheless that batches can change.

here is a code to colour chart for some of the Ranga colours, not all... they are so many!

Mr.Kandan: I don't see an option for a gold-toned Jowo EF steel nib.  Can I get this (I think gold-toned hardware is best for a yellow ripple pen)?

If you do not find it in the options they have probably run short of the Jowo EF gold tone,

may I suggest a Bock EF gold tone? They are just as good (actually I have a slight preference for Bock).

While I love Bock nibs once they're sorted out, I've had a few  bad ones lately (including my last Ranga) which necessitated getting a replacement feed and/or nib&feed assembly.  Several nib pros seem to believe that quality control is better at Jowo.  I wonder how the S9 material would look in all chrome.....

well, I don't want to digress to much

but there's quite a few yellow pens around that are matched with chrome

here is one, that has a vaguely similar black-yellow pattern

fpn_1570734410__delta-pompei-stilografic

but I think also Parker mandarin and Pelikan 205 yellow are chrome finish

Thank you.  Is that chrome?  My eyes/brain make me see gold.  Weird....

I'll think about it.

This page shows many of the ebonites pretty well.  The yellow (if it's the same) is bright but not burning.  I think I agree that chome would go fine with this shade.  Now, I've got to commit to it versus all the other attractive options...

absolutely chrome/silver toned, yes

 

by the way, out of curiosity, google "yellow pens" you will notice a large majority has silver trim...

After all that, I wound up ordering a solid teal (4C, chrome clip, chrome EF Jowo nib) last night. I decided that I'd rather order a polished ripple in the future.

Yes. Sir. Jowo Gold Mono tone EF nib is out of stock. We have other 56 nib options:)

I could be interested in a Model 8 if I could get it about 1/2" shorter.  Is that possible?

Ok Sir. We will do our best.
