  1. From the album: Size and shape comparisons

    Same length. Same girth. Same weight. Same body material. Same nib material. Same limited choice of nib width (i.e. MF only). Different nib geometry. Different internal construction in the gripping section. Different cap ring. Different clip shape. Different price.

The replacement product pages are here for the transparent Profit Junior and the transparent Procolor 500.)

  2. Intend to get the M805 Stresemann, yet after considering the idea from buddies here, I choose to wait for the M1005 Stresemann. Facing my wallet to the Sailor Pro Gear, I got this Profit Junior demonstrator together with the PG. Package - Neat and tidyPlastic box, 2 cartridges, user manual.And the converter is bought separately. Outlook - clean, minimalismSmall cigar type, as usual Japanese pen, decent production. From box to the pen, no complaint. Minimalism. And no matter what, the transparent feed and section is attractive. I suggest using light colorful ink as the feed and section will demonstrate the color nicely. After difficult situation on choosing inks, I give the Monteverde Turquoise a try, I love this aqua-style blue. And also I like the chrome details in a clear demonstrator. Center band reading: SAILOR - MADE IN JAPAN Together with the CH92 Writing - no skip, no variation, stiff nib, fine lines, good for speed writing.Treat it as a European EF. The MF is medium to fine in Japanese standard. (Seems only MF is available) For the ink I chosen, the feeling is not super smooth (but surely not scratchy) on normal paper, it provides good feedback. When writing on Maruman or Clairefontaine, the feeling is much better, neat, tidy and even faster. The nib is on the stiff side and not wet, but could keep up with speed writing, no skipping problem (not even dashing extreme fast lines, and that really surprises me), so it is a good instrument for general note taking or for huge volume writing. I try to press the nib for some line variations, uum… nope, I feel scratchy when pressing hard, so don’t expect any. The overall weight for unposted is a bit light and short, but the balance and feeling is comfortable when posted (I have a relatively big hand). Price - lovelyThis demonstrator is about USD 15 together with the converter (bought separately). I think it would be difficult to beat for pens in this price range. I order Japanese pens from Japan directly, always. Two reasons: lower price, and better quality (The quality of Japanese made products sold in Japan domestic market is traditionally better than those shipped out to foreign countries, I don’t know if it is true to FP or not, anyway, a peace in mind) Cons - no nib optionsReally hard to find two I may say for a demonstrator with these qualities and price tag.And it’s the nib option. That’d be wonderful if other nib options, like stub, soft medium, or Italic, are available…. Overall - Simply I like it. Very good for carrying around in the office for meeting, etc... ^_^Thanks!
