Do the little bearings rattle noticeably when the pen moves around?

If you are shaking around, yes, but I haven't noticed it otherwise when I was taking class notes.

Thank you for posting the picture :)

 

I bought a couple of CON-20 but I'm relieved to see that this new converter will fit my "little old ones".

I like the CON-40 a lot. A silent rattle when you move the pen, but not anything near the "clonking" from the CON-50.

The small balls also do a good job in transporting the ink to the feed.

 

But my favourite thing about CON-40 is that it's transparent. The ink level is easily readable.

Ouch. It's expensive at Amazon. I'm also eager to get one for my 95S, but I'll wait until the price comes into line with the others.

The price of one on Amazon is enough for you to buy two or three from an eBay seller (they may ship w/o tracking but it will arrive).

Hmm, I'm not that enamoured with this rattlecan design, so panic- bought a con20 while they're still easy to get. The nipple is so deep within the section on my old Elite it's tricky to judge the ink level anyway.

Thank you so much to all of you who shared your experience with CON-40! I don't particularly need a converter now, so I will wait on buying CON-40s. But I like what I read about it so far, so I won't stock up on CON-20 or 50s.

and it was only that one con-20 converter?

Yeah - not sure if it wasn't sealing up or what not - but went ahead and got two CON 20s and hunting down a 40 - i tend to prefer piston converters

      @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.
