  1. I had to disassemble a Hero 100 as it was badly clogged. Unfortunately, I don't read Chinese. There seems to be very little documentation on English sites, so I'm hoping for some information Some Hero 100s seem to have clear collectors while others are opaque. Any significance to this? Mine's clear (albeit covered in horrible, waterproof residue).Is there some way to tell how old a Hero 100 is? This one might be 20+. I've heard older pens are more desirable. How are they different?Were nib widths other than F ever produced?Click on the photos for larger versions. Believe it or not, I've alrea
  2. In my quest for a Parker "51," I decided to go the budget route and originally bought a Hero 616 and later a Hero 100. Both pens gave me issues with hard starts. I took the Hero 616 cap and filled it with water and immediately saw water dripping out of the cap around the top of the clip. I unscrewed the end and covered the whole area in silicone grease and screwed the finial back on. This made the hard starts on the Hero 616 completely go away. The Hero 100 cap also leaks when I fill it with water, right where the clip enters the cap. The clip on the Hero 100 is hinged, so I didn't t
  3. I've gone over the reviews and Google even gave me a notice that they were getting unusually heavy traffic from my IP. I'm still on the fence and eBay seller laonan123 having them on sale is not helping me move on. EDIT: Two things to clarify what I need help on: I own a couple of Chinese pens (both the "vintage" aerometric fillers and the "modern" piston converter pens) with more coming in the mail. I've never bought one though at this price. Is the leap in price (3x or more) commensurate with a leap in performance and construction? Problems I have noted from research are a. section crack
  4. Introduction Why would anyone be mad enough to splurge $49 on a Hero 100 fountain pen, especially a Hero 100 variant that you have neither seen nor heard of? You do so because Soumitra Sanyal (@sanyalsoumitra) himself recommends it and offers to buy it for you from China during his visit there. For those of you who aren't familiar with his exploits, Soumitra-da is our resident walking and talking encyclopaedia on Chinese fountain pen matters. Just refer to his thread here to get a glimpse of his expertise and experience with the oriental pen makers and their instruments. That is how one fine
  5. I have been using a Hero 100 flighter at work for several reasons, I do a lot of math and calculations, with the dreaded many-tens-of-seconds pauses between writing, and the hooded nib works great for that. I found at walgreens drugstore (in USA) a Timesmart Note Book, which is I think 100 pages, a light grid on one side, and simple college ruled lines on the other side of every sheet. The sheets even have a uniform perforation so you can tear out an important page if the need arises. I was using Waterman Blue Ink, which works great for writing on this paper, but alas it does not fair we
  6. Hi there, when I am away on business travel, I take my Pilot Custom 823 with me as a pen for taking notes, a role for which it is suited to on account of it being a vacuum filler. However, the pen has a screw-on cap, which I find slightly annoying, and in addition, I would like to take a cheaper pen with me. For this reason, I am thinking of purchasing a Hero 100 / 1000, but only if it shares the same air travel-friendly properties as the pen upon which it is modelled on, the Parker 51. Does anybody of the esteemed members here have any experiences with the Hero 100/0 in terms of air tra
