Hello,

maybe someone can help me or give me a hint...

I found out I want a Conid Bulkfiller, but unfortunately they shut off the production until may,

and I discovered no store has them on stock...

It also appears that on the whole web nobody has a used one up for sale.

Do I miss something or it's just a bad moment to get this pen ?

Many thanks for reading this,

ATB

Fred

I think it's just a bad moment. I'm sure someone knows how to purchase one now, but I also want one and I'm just going to wait untill may when their shop reopens.

yes.. it's just a bad time to try and get one since Conid has stopped taking orders to meet their current production demands. A lot of Conid owners love their pens so I usually don't see too many up for sale.

Yeah, think you're just out of luck until they open orders again unless you stumble across one used for sale.

I'd go out on a limb and say ALL Conid owners love their pens, which explains the near non-existent availability of used in the market place.

Conid has a webpage that automatically collects mentions of its pens on the web.  Some of the mentions are offers of Conids for sale.  It might be useful to keep an eye on this:  https://www.conidpen...lk-about-conid/ .

Someone just snapped up a Conid over at fpgeeks/forum. You might try watching over there as well.

Aren't you clever, sidthecat? I hope that one day Conid can charm you with a ring-top. It would be a lovely idea!  :D Would you like?

You’re barking up the wrong tree, dear. There isn’t a Conid for miles.

That's OK I'll just take whatever I can find.
