Hero 5066, 2018 Summer Holiday Release


Recommended Posts

Hero release their 5066 just around summer holiday and I've got myself the ginger yellow one for some time but just get around to actually ink it up & use it; been using it for a week or so just think I should share this one, very nicely done up and for those who like me not caring too much for all the clear piston demo, and not very fond of the triangular grip, this could be a welcome option. I find this more appealing and portable than the usual affairs of 359 or 3008/3009

Its made up of extruded single piece aluminum barrel and cap , with legend silk printed on the top of the cap; brushed and colored finish but lacquered over so it feel glossy with a faint tactile feedback of the brushed texture ( it might be VPD coating, I am not so sure ), use the same matt aluminum finished ( equally lacquered over ) section for all color option ( which include the ginger yellow, dark grey, turquoise/sky blue and pink ), C/C filling ( same wide mouth type as all Lamy Style nib models, it came with a screw type converter ) and nib come in standard Fine. Something of a surprise in the clip. its spring load hinged but its plastic, the tough type used on camping gears like strap buckles. some measurement ... oh and finally the box it came in serve really well as a pen tray on the desk


- 149mm cappped

- 122mm unpped

- 158mm posted

- 11mm barrel diameter

- section is 10.5mm tapering to 9.3mm at the nib end

- 23g weight

Thanks for that review. Beautiful pen and very tempting. I don't see any listed on the usual western sites. Where are they available?

At me locale I can buy straight from their home market online store ( Taobao, JD ), but I've seen them offer on Ali-Express, but not yet on Amazon nor eBay .. your mileage may vary but check it ..

      @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!
