I tried the 1912 Heritage Roller time ago and it seemed to me smoother than the Pix i am using. Same thing for the M that uses the same refill;the line also were bolder and more saturated. Was it only my impression or they are really smoother? How does this pen behave for long writing sessions? I d like such a refill to be offered for capped rollers too.

I totally agree - I have two different sizes of Meisterstuck rollerballs and the capless refill in my 1912 Heritage outperforms both of them with a slightly thicker line and a bit more fluid feel.

I haven’t had any problems with the pen for long writing sessions, but I have had the occasional refill not perform up to standard.

I’d LOVE for Montblanc to make a larger capless rollerball that uses this same refill, as the Heritage is a bit small for my hand. I inquired at my local Montblanc boutique but was told that this is highly unlikely. I got the impression the Heritage has underperformed in terms of sales.
Current favorite pen: Montblanc 144 Meisterstuck purchased at Art Brown in 1984. After 25 years, every part has been replaced except the nib. Still a gorgeous writing instrument, rock-solid reliable, gives me hours of pleasure to use.
Current favorite ink: PR Supershow Blue
Current favorite paper: Kokuyo Ice notepads from Japan

Try WE Homer, it is slighter bigger pen than 1912 Heritage. It is still available even at some Montblanc boutique stores.

I am using the MB Heritage 1912 SS Ballpoint. It is very smooth and easy to write with. When I changed the refill with a new one, it did not perform as good so I chucked it and use the original refill that came with the pen.

I did the trick where I would refill it using fps inks. I am using it with Montblanc Permanent Blue without trouble!

I find that it performs better than the MB Starwalker rollerball and MB regular broad bo refill.
