I have had my eye on the Hero Fountain pens for some time. These were the staple pens during my school days. With a lot of sweet memories attached, I finally took the plunge and bought a new Hero 332 online on Ebay.

They are available quite easily and abundantly on Ebay for 180-250Rs (3-5$)

My quick review:

- the pen is still a delight to use, like in my school days

- the nib is a smooth F with a nice wet line. It sounds a bit scratchy but still writes a nice smooth line

- the sack style filling mechanism can be a pain at times - on my first fill i hardly got 2-3 pages as there was hardly any ink despite trying to fill 4-5 times using the metal press

On my second try i removed the metal cover and directly used the sack to fill it up and this time it does seem to have filled fully

- i like the covered nib style. A lot less messier on my fingers as I write. And nib is slightly misalligned with the feed but I can live with it for now.

- Nice light weight with a nice firm clip

- the cap fit is a bit loose. It can be powted, though I am a bit indifferent with the weight either ways.

 

Overall a nice, pocket friendly, daily use pen.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
