Wing Sung 699 - Victo Green Stationery Vacuum Filler Coming

Recommended Posts

Tas, I've read that the Kaigelu 316 spare nib fits. What's not to love about a nib with a kangaroo imprint?

 

This is a #5.5. Only place I've seen these readily available is Fountain Pen Revolution. Fortunately I have a Kaigelu from replaceing the 316 housing and nib with Bock.

Thanks lovely people.

 

(I've pulled the existing nib away from its feed a teensy smidge and now the nib has some spring and just enough variation to add interest . . . it's still a medium in my mind though :mellow:)

(( Can't stop using it. Dread to think what I'd be like with a real 823!))

FPR 5.5 nibs are basically size 5 nibs. There was some reason why FPR calls theirs 5.5 which I don't remember now, but Kaigelu 316 nib is significantly bigger that FPR's 5.5

Spare Kaigelu 316 nibs are available without the pen body.

FPR used to sell a smaller nib (shorter, and not quite as wide, but with the same curvature around the feed), which they branded a #5 nib - so when they started selling the longer, wider nib, they called it a #5.5. It's a little misleading, at least potentially - really you could categorise either, or both, as #5 - but it was their way (at the time) of differentiating the two kinds of nib they had for sale.

There is a clear transparent version of the 699 now on Ebay.

I believe that Bobby has also announced that his AliExpress store has the transparent clear in stock.

Just a thought that I had...

It's a shame that they decided to make a knockoff of the Pilot 823, which itself is a knockoff of the Montblanc 14X design. I would much rather that they had made their 626 have a vacuum filling option, much like a modern revival of the Sheaffer Balance, but with the vacuum filling system (unlike the other reproductions, which are C/C or lever fill).

I jumped on that one from the taobao seller today. I'm curious about the M nib.

Did you also have the F nib? If so a comparaison of the two nibs would be wonderful. I want a 699 but I am afraid the F nib would be too fine for me. I saw some sellers fitting a replacement M nib but that is not an original.

I've been trying a few different nibs.

 

JoWo nibs fit

 

Jinhao nibs fit

 

Nemosine nibs do not.

Which Jinhao nib fits the Wing Sung 699?

 

Is it the jowo #5 or #6 that fits.

 

Thanks

Before you throw out the Wing Sung 699 nib and replace it with a German #6: Give it a try! They're actually good. I recently did the opposite: Replaced a Bock nib on another pen with a better-performing Wing Sung one.

I agree. The new M nib is a great addition to this pen.

Have you or anyone else tried a Bock nib? Been interested in trying the titanium one for a while, and the 699 would be my preferred pen if it fits

      @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.
