Which Chinese pens will take a Pilot Plumix/Pluminix/78g/Metropolitan/Prera/etc. nib?



Recommended Posts

I really like the Plumix/Pluminix F nib but I don't like the pen it comes in at all. I've put one of these nibs in a uber-inexpensive Wing Sung 3003 a few weeks ago and, so far, so good - I like it better than the Pilot 78g's that I used previously for swapping Pilot nibs of the same ilk. (Though I wish I could have used the Pluminix's feed with the WS 3003 but it didn't seem to fit. The performance with the WS feed is fine, regardless.)

 

I thought to try a PenBBS 494 for my next nib swap from a Pluminix but which other Chinese pens should I be looking at that fit the Pluminix nib well, please?

Pali 013, which is from the same mould as the Wing Sung 3013.

 

PenBBS 494, as you've already mentioned.

 

I'm sure there are others, but having several of the above (and some unopened Pilot Prera pens in a drawer, plus several older Pilot 78G pens from maybe 2014 that sit largely unused), I'm not going to look any further myself, and so won't be offering any other alternatives.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Hello, I could fit a M Plumix nib into a Wing Sung 698, whose nib was skipping.

Fits a bit tight but writes smoothly.

[Edit] If I recall correctly I could only fit the nib, not the feed/nib combo...

Actually the best IMHO would be the Caliarts EGO-II

 

WRT the Caliarts EGO-II, are there any differences other than the clip and the colors/finishes between it and the earlier version of the EGO?

 

Thanks to all for the info!

The Mfr made small improvement on the piston assembly but generally you can consider both version the same
