Wing Sung 2007

Dear fellow pen enthousiasts,

 

I have a question!

 

Does anybody know anything about the Wing Sung 2007?

There is an 'informal review' about this pen, but that is about it.

 

Is it a pen that is worth it to buy? I mean, 6 dollars is not expensive, but hey, the Jinhao 601 is 6 dollars and oh boy what a pen is that!

 

Looking forward to your replies!

 

Greetings,

A fountain pen nut

Ok, it depends on what you expect for your $6.

Personally, I think that if you get a screw cap pen, that writes for $6 you are already onto a winner.

 

It is a very light, all plastic pen, which due to its design is pretty attractive and different looking.

I have the red, and even though it has a fine nib, I really quite like it.

I've probably used it for about 3 ink fills, and it hasn't given any problems at all.

What I would say, is that as it is all plastic, it does feel quite flimsy and if you prefer a pen with more heft then it's a no, no.

It's a decent enough pen, that looks nice and writes well.

So is it worth the $6? ...of course it is.

There may be others which appear better value, but there's very little wrong with this pen, and very little to go wrong with it either.

Bearing in mind that certain sellers will give you at least 10% off, it's definitely worth considering, especially if you like a lightweight pen,that looks a wee bit different, and has a nice, fine nib.

GJ,

Ian is right. A faceted lightweight screw-cap pen with converter, that writes well for $6. Worth it. Is it a faceted, machined Omas? No, but it doesn't cost $500, either.

What colour did you go for?

I bought one in burgundy last night.

 

I did this purely on the basis that if you don't buy cheap pens, how will you ever be able to recognise the quality of a more expensive pen?

The question of subjective estimations of issues of quality aside, I find that I sooner pick up one of my 7007s than my much more expensive, and of supposed higher quality, Pilot Stella.

Ahhhh, but what if you were to buy a "cheap" pen, that turns out only to be a cheap pen in price.

Would that not put the cat among the doo's. ;)

I know, I know, 'cheap', 'expensive', 'quality' , it's all relative and largely irrelevant - if you enjoy using the pen then that's pretty much all that matters.

 

Currenly I am enjoying the green Picasso 915 which I ordered (as a result of your pictures and comments) in error, which as it turns out I actually prefer to the red version (which arrived a day earlier, despite being ordered a day later) as it has (to me) a more restrained chrome finish rather than gold. Also goes rather well with Diamine Umber.

Ian,

OK, I will bite. What does this phrase mean?

Hahaha, Sorry Bob.

It translates to "Set the cat amongst the pigeons" meaning basically that mayhem would ensue.

I bought one, on the basis of this thread? I think?

 

Some weeks later it arrived, and I was initially disappointed at the light weight, as I thought it was a different pen.

 

As well, it initially was a very dry writer, until I loosened the tension between the end of the tines so that some ink could actually get through...

 

Now, I am quite impressed. For a pen of this price, its fit and finish are quite good. The shape is unusual, but it is a comfortable and pleasant pen to write with, especially when capped as it is so light.

 

I haven't done anything to the nib except spread the tines. It is an Asian fine nib, and writes smoothly without any scratchiness. No other adjustment was needed. Filled with the blend Noodler's Inkyman Sapphire, it is now just wet enough to shade a little, even though it is a fine nib.

 

Very happy with it for its price.

Oh, I see. "Doo" is the Scots' mangling of charming attempt at pronouncing the word "dove". :)

:lticaptd: Excuse me!! Our superior linguistic loquaciousness is legendary. B)

You are correct though, of course.

I personally, when growing up couldn't understand how the home for said doves, in your version of English, was a "dovecote", yet somehow it was pronounced "dookit" in ours. :lol:

Much easier just to call it a pigeon loft.

We call all the scraps in our house 'cat food', because when they are fed to the birds/rodents that's what they all turn into.

Yesterday our Main Coon cat 'Ozzie' came back with a lovely plump rat with a 6" long body, which (this time) he swapped for a tin of cat food. He normally eats them, particularly relishing the tail.

 

Regards,

Bob: Did tweaking the nib help with the 'feedback' issue? What is the nib size - #5?

:lol:

Our old Maine Coon would not have had the the brain power to catch anything. Let alone then actually EAT it -- he had been a show cat before we got him, and he was a cat who got by in the world on his good looks (i.e., he was dumb as a post). He didn't even know how to chase the "evil red dot" (aka the laser pointer) -- he would just sit and watch it intently....

He did end *up* with a few mice over the years (generally the annual "pre-Pennsic mouse") -- but I suspect that either our "brave and mighty huntress" Obilot got it and then left it (she was the only cat we ever had that was really a mouser) -- or the mouse saw Byron and said "OMG -- that's the biggest cat I've ever SEEN!" and promptly had a coronary....

The cat that adopted my parents used to occasionally catch (and eat) mice -- and then puke them back up, generally in the middle of the garage floor.... My mother always used to wonder what the woman who bought that house from them thought when Baby showed up at the sliding glass door to the dining room wanting to come in.... (He was never their cat -- he belonged to the people who lived diagonally behind us, but was two-timing.... B) And since they got him declawed when he was a couple of years old :glare: it's no wonder he liked it at our house better....)

Back on topic:

I don't have one of the 2007s, but I have a Wing Sung 237, which sadly doesn't get much use these days -- it's a nice pen (much nicer than the price tag would have warranted). I pulled it out recently, meaning to put it back in rotation (I have a bunch of ink samples still to try), but then had too many pens inked up already.... :headsmack:

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
