Sharing some pictures of my Guider Jumbos in Ebonite. L-R: Brahmam-Deccan, GJ Tota green, MB149 press fit, GJ Golconda Bordeaux. L-R: GJ Golconda, GJ Tota, GJ Snow Zimbo, GJ Snow Super Zimbo. The stock nib, upgraded. Alongside the optional stock Schmidt upgrade. Jumbo? Rides easily in my pocket. The pen holds a humongous 5.12ml ink in ED mode. Cheers, Hari

First impressions I knew this was a big pen and when it arrived, I wasn't disappointed Indian pens aren't exactly known for their fit and finish, but this is a pleasant deviant from that norm. Short of examining it under a loupe, I found no flaws on its body or cap. The two threads - between the barrel and section and between the body and cap - were also smooth enough. The clip has indentations that initially suggested a quality issue but after looking it awhile, I'm not sure that it isn't by design. I wish I had a better camera (what sort are ideal to photograph pens?); apologies for the
