    Conclusion (1-10) - This is a fun pen that I think everyone should at least try out. Check out eBay to see if you can find a good deal, and pick one up. They make great EDC's and even better presents to start off a friend into the FP world. I really love mine. Final Score 8/10

    It is a pretty good review and while I do not agree I do appreciate the you went through the effort of doing it.
    I would prefer that you take the next step and actually put the review here but that is also my personal preference.

    I bought 3 Hero 616's, took all 3 apart and reassembled a single pen out of the best of the pieces.
    I then gave it away and it embarrassed me since it was still a piece of shit.
    Postage was more than the pens and I still felt robbed. YMMV.

    Thanks for the review.

    I have four Doctor 616's. 'Doctor' I think is or was a sub-brand of Hero. Two are still in their blister packs. The doctor is a full size pen comparable to the Parker 51. The two I'm using are excellent pens, so much so that I feel no need to get a Parker 51. They lay down a fine wet line. I would highly recommend the Doctor 616.

    I have several of the regular (non Jumbo) Hero 616's. I like them while writing I my pocket notebook, but I really don't like the aerometric filler. I usually change inks every refill, and an aerometric is a pain. I did learn how to push out the nib and feed by pushing on the feeder tube. You can then use a syringe to flush the ink sac.

    It has been a couple of months since I used a Hero. I think I'll ink one up next.

    Thanks for the review - yes a nice pen, but there are a lot of counterfeit 616's for sale. I once got a 10 pack of fake 616's and had to throw them all out. Make sure to get them from a reputable seller like yespen on the bay - no affiliation and all that.

    For me Hero 616 was a cheap way of realizing I REALLY don't like hooded nibs

    Thanks for the review :-)

    This pen really really reminds me of elementary school days in China. Hero pens were cheap so great for kids learning to write. The hooded nib means young children who are not careful with handling a fountain pen won't end up with ink all over their hands all the time.

    To start, letís discuss what a soundbar is. A soundbar is a single, long, horizontal speaker that is designed to be placed in front of or underneath a television. This type of speaker is usually connected to the TV via a single cable, making it easy to set up. Soundbars typically come with multiple built-in speakers, usually including a subwoofer, to provide a full, rich sound. https://drsoundbar.com/best-soundbar-for-lg-tv/
