Ranga 9B With Customized (Extra-Girthy) Section



Recommended Posts

Just to quick post to show an interesting pen that arrived today: A Ranga 9B with extra fat, concave section. I asked for a section that was comparable in girth to that of an L-size Eboya Houga.

Very comfortable in hand! Happy so far.

Fantastic!

Wonderful! I love how the thicker section makes the step-up to the body diameter from the section relatively less prominent. Are the cap threads the same diameter as on the standard 9B?

 

I love how the black ebonite looks too, though I might go for the black crushed ice acrylic instead. This could well be my next Ranga if I decide to order, but how would I specify this shape to Mr. Pandurangan? Would he know which pen I mean if I cite "Fudefan's black 9B"?

I don't have a regular 9B so I'm not entirely sure, but from photos it looks like it could be the same diameter.

 

Their premium acrylics are pretty too! I'm sure that'd look good. Yes I believe he'd know what pen you're referreing to, especially if you send a link to this thread :)

Thanks! This is their "rose red / black ripple" special ebonite, aka S12.

well done, a very nice customization that meets the desires and earlier discussions about a Ranga pen with not only a larger body but also a larger section that the 3 /3C (without going into the huge body size of the 5).

 

As BlueJ says, I too love how the thicker section makes the step-up to the body diameter from the section relatively less prominent.

I usually suffer from the stepdown on pens, so this is going in the right direction in terms of design.

 

Willing to experiment one in future.

The solid black ebonite looks good too, is finish bakul or polished?, cannot tell so well from the photo

Hi, yes I think Ranga did a great job with this one. Very comfortable in hand. It's polished ebonite.

That black pen is really lovely and the photography is excellent too. I just got a Ranga (B in black/red swirls and couldn't be happier.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
