I just got my 601 knock off the Flighter yesterday.  I purchased upgraded nibs so I can get a wider line.  Writes really well. For $21 you not only get a good value, but I'm not afraid to throw this one in my pocket and go.  Plus, vacumatic.


Where can you get the upgraded nibs for a wider line width?

How does the Wing Sung 601 differ from the Hero 616?

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Are the nibs on the WS601 interchangeable with the P51?


The Wing Sung 601 nib is smaller in diameter than a Parker 51 nib.  I tried to put a Parker 51 nib into my 601, and it will not fit.
