Wing Sung 235, Hero 616 jumbo. They are not great, but pretty good writers, accessible for those who don`t live in the US, where one can get the real pens for peanuts !

Hero 100 is better. It even has the 14K gold nib

 

^^ This.

 

I'm going to post a short review of a P51, along with a few clones (Hero 1000, Baoer 100, Hero 616, Hero 336 and Wing Sheng 036) in a day or two.

I don't know if its a model you're looking for, but the Baoer 388 is a nice clone of the Parker Sonnet. I have the stainless steel version, its pretty much my workhorse pen.

I still use a Hero 330 (Black), and its more than enough value for the price, but the QC varies.

is "great clone pens" an oxymoron?

 

To me a clone is not much if any better than a fake.

Fakes pretend to be the original, clones don't.

 

The following are very good and I use them interchangably with the original

Parker Sonnet: Duke 209, Kaigelu 356.

Parker Duofold International: Jinhao Century Mk 2

Parker Duofold Centennial: Kaigelu 316

 

Fairly good:

Parker Sonnet: Baoer 388.

Parker 61: Parker 17 Standard, later models.

 

Give an idea of the original but nothing much more:

Parker Sonnet: Hero 5020.

Parker 51: Hero 616. Parker 21, Parker 21 Super

 

Wrong Size (diameter or length, or both) but otherwise adequate to good.

Parker 51: Hero 100, Hero 329, Hero 330, Jinhao 321 (the best non P51/61 hooded nib pen I have come across bar none - shame it's out of production), Bahadur 612, Dux 612.

Parker 61: Wing Sung 812

 

I am afraid I don't know makes other than Parker very well.

 

Regards,

 

Richard

Well, there are many pens that are good quality clones. 'Homage' is a better word.
