The Lorelei and the 992 are two Sailor Procolor 500 homages, each took a different path towards the common goal of achieving a certain appearance.

992 barrel cracking issue fix:

💬 Comments

I came to similar conclusions, having purchased a 992 with a fantastic nib and cracking barrel, I decided to get the Lorelei. Not happy with the stock nib, I purchased a Pilot Plumix with a medium italic nib and it fit perfectly in the Lorelei and has become one of my favorite knock-around pens. The Jinhao nibs are really amazing for the price, however, and the cracking doesn't really affect either the performance or aesthetics. Thanks for making this video.

Oh my, I didn't realize the feed and section are threaded lol. Imagine if the 992 had no cracking issues, Jinhao would have sold millions. Thank you so much for sharing!

Thanks for your this and your other considered reviews Seele2015au. I've watched all of them with interest and learned much in the process. I look forward to more of your engineering and materials-based video essays of writing instruments, both contemporary and older. Btw, you state the Lorelie is made of poly-bicarbonate. Is the 992 made of polystyrene?

Great review and interesting - thanks. You raised a number of points I hadn’t picked up on from other reviews. I’ve just discovered your channel and have subbed.

How did you know my Jinhao 992 had a crack? I tried changing the nib for a stub 1.1 mm and the nib is skipping and gushing in equal parts. XS very annoying, since I love my stubs and this pen looked so good and affordable. I will check your other video, thank you so much!

I had a 992 and it's okay for the price, but I really should stop wasting money buying these cheap pens and buy a single high quality pen that will last me a long time.

Great review. I included a Sailor Procolor in my Youtube review of Blue Demo Lingmo, another homage pen.

I thought they're more of a Monteverde Monza homages. Including the bimple at the end of the barell.

The most important part is missing, the WRITING.

I guess "homage" pen is your nice way of saying "blatant rip-off" ;b
