  1. I'm particularly fond of the gold-trim one second from the left - it has a 12k nib. I also like the gold-trim demonstrator a lot; it doesn't exist "in the wild." I built it from parts. The parts are mostly interchangeable with the parts from Hero 616s, so if, e.g., you want to replace the dorky plastic "jewels" in your 601s with metal ones, Hero 616s are a cheap source of trim parts.
  2. So I was browsing through Bobbys e-bay and I have noticed something new. Wing Sing 601 with a metal body Price is slightly higher than classic and curiosity got better of me and I bought one. I already have 2 normal 601 and I am really curious about the metal version of this pen. has anyone any experiences with this new model? I couldn't find any pictures so is the e.-bay link. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wing-Sung-601-Vacumatic-Fountain-Pen-Steel-Ink-Pen-Piston-Type-Silver-Clip-F-Nib/233590766661
  3. Hey guys, I realized that the Jinhao 911 and the Wing Sung 601 have the exact same nibs. The Jinhao 911 however, is better made, and is generally better than the Wing Sung's nib. I have tried using both nibs, and the found that the Jinhao 911 nib has an extra 10 degrees in it's "comfort zone" compared to the Wing Sung's nib. It's also a bit wetter in general, so I gave it a try and switched those nibs. They fit perfectly. Just a heads up, hope it helps! The Jinhao is also only $1.60 USD for a pen, which is extremely cheap. I'd buy it for the nib and extra converter.
  4. Hmmm.. so I got my order of the new Hero 616Plus delivered almost for a week and of course instantly I tear off the packaging and get to the pen and was keen on trying to see how it goes, but even a single eyeball give me suspicions .. hard to say but I sense something really different here .. call it a hunch whatever and well ... my engineering spirit just had to prop up .. so out come all the current retro hooded models and my calipar, well even without the calipar I can see something there and some measurements proved that am on the right track . OK let's hack these open then so I g
  5. I have been travelling around France this past week with my new PenBBS 456 in my pocket and was very well satisfied with it. Prior to getting this one, my travel pen was the Wing Sung 601, also an extremely good instrument, albeit more understated. (By which I mean that it doesn't draw much attention to itself, and when you start writing, it sort of merges with your hand and becomes an imperceptible elongation of your arm; you don't really notice it anymore after a couple of seconds of writing.) Both pens have their advantages and disadvantages, which I quickly looked at in this comparison.

    Wing Sung 601 Review

    Wing Sung 601 This pen came after month of waiting and I am really exited to share my first thoughts and impression from it. Boxing…well the box was all ways crumpled as the transport package was in just envelope with bubble foil. Meh who cares. Chinese only manual, big help when you do not know single sign of the language. Oh well no added value here, but it could be worse I suppose. Packaging 3/10 The pen has a very pleasant heft in hand and all seems alright. The materials seem polished and have good surface no scratches or dings. I am bit worried about the cap might hold after fe
