This is a long, detailed review*. If you just want a quick summation skip to the bottom. If you want an in-depth account of my observations of this product read on ... I have both the green marble and the red marble (or whatever Jinhao calls the color, it's the same as the green only it's dark red)....
As I am enjoying writing in my Hobonichi A6, I had to pause to share this review with y’all! This Jinhao X450 has a substantial weight which feels good in the hand. I weighed it at 44 grams. That’s more than twice the 21gram weight of my TWSBI Eco. The M nib has a gorgeous gold color with silver acc...
Wow, the amount of detail and precision you can get is amazing. I know to those who own a loupe this is a no brainer, but to any collector, hobbyist, writer, enjoyer, or tinker-er it is a powerful tool to turn a mediocre pen into a stellar writer. I had pens which I had no idea were misaligned set back to the way they should and can actually feel a difference (particularly a Lamy Vista and Jinhao x450).
Here’s the deal with Jinhao fountain pens
I then got the Jinhao X450 in Gold and Green Marble, which also has a nice heft and passable nib. One main difference with the x750 is the ribbed grip, which I like. Knock on wood: I have not had any issues with leaks or outright terrible nibs with these pens

Early thoughts on the Jinhao 159 fountain pen.

What's your unpopular fountain pen opinion?
That the Jinhao X450, however cheap it may be, is not worth it if you think you are going to write with it a lot for more than 6 months. The snap cap loosens up really quickly, the grip paint peels off, it can hurt your middle finger when the pen rests on it, and the gold plated trims damage very easily.
