The WALITY 69TS is the smaller version of the 69TL. Just like the 58C being a "mini me " version of the 71J.

However the 69TS has some differences. Firstly, it has a single start cap thread as compared to the 4 starts of the 69TL. Secondly, the barrel and cap have the same diameter so there is a small step up at the end of the cap threads on the barrel.

The stock GP fine nib a no 5.5 Indian:

As I love to experiment, one of the following pens is upgraded with the Schmidt system FH341.

Finally a size comparison:

Lamy 2000, TL, TS, Pelikan M200.

Even though the 69TS is not as popular or as well known as the 69TL, I really like these pens. Ideal for tucking into small pockets or to give to your child ( with a good smooth nib).

Cheers,
Hari

They look nice as always great to see the nib mods done, they take time and effort must say (not for me honestly...not yet at least). I got my 69EB yesterday and was doing initial testings and trying to fit Kanwrite no 6 nibs (did not fit was fun though).

 

Anyway great photographs Hari, thanks for sharing.

You are welcome.
Its possible to install a no 35 kw nib in the EB. It needs a little bit of technique and you have to set it really deep to clear the inner cap.
Its more straightforward to install a KW no 8 nib. Its a straight swap. Hope this helps.

Great pics!! Is the ink capacity very different between ts and tl? Does it have an effect on tendency to burp? Thanks!

Thank you. The TS holds 1.82ml whereas the TL holds 2.6ml. So yes on a large pen with low ink levels you are at a greater risk. However you can mitigate it using a nice feeder like the ones found in the Schmidt system.
