I'm not fortunate enough to own any, however the penultimate one is utterly beautiful.
Lovely! I fancy the Professional Gear, but they seem to be quite small.
Beautiful collection you have there
I'm particularly fond of this Sailor Pro Gear 'Regency Stripe' with H-MF nib that's smooth as butter. I also have a Sailor 1911 and a Pelikan M805, but the Pro Gear is by far my favourite.
They are relatively short but also wider than many others. Kinda like the Sheaffer PFM/Legacy family of pens.
Would you or @FrankieG please be kind enough to measure one and let me know the un-posted length? I tend to not post pens and find 12cm to be the minimum length I can use comfortably without posting.
Mine measures 11.5cm unposted to end of nib.
I've found you an extra 4mm: My Pro Gear Realo measures 119mm from nib tip to piston knob end. As near as damn it identical length to the Platinum #3776 when compared that way.
Quick edit to mention; mine is the older Pro Gear, the newer Pro Gear II has different components, most notably the clip - I think this may measure longer again.
Thanks guys. I may be able to get away with a Pro Gear.
