    Thumbs up Pen Sizes.

    The more I look into pens, the more confused I get. Is there a list somewhere that shows all pens sizes compared to names? What I am trying to say is;Baron11 is the same as Sedona11????
    It appears each pen maker has a different name for the same pen. Is that true???
    Or am I reading in to things to deep and getting myself confused?
    Any help is welcome with open mind.
    Thanks

    Actually, it's worse than that. Rather than use different names for the same pen, it seems the trend is to use the same name for different pens. The pen will be the same style, but use different sized tubes and bushings. Can be very frustrating. I've learned to order new bushings whenever I order kits from a different supplier, just in case.
    Note to self: Mallet wins over wrist every time.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.
