Fountain Pen Shootout #77: OMAS 360 Magnum vs. OMAS 360 Vintage

The OMAS 360 Magnum is one of my favourite pens ever, but how does it stack up to the newer version (I think OMAS referred to it as the “vintage” version, to distinguish it from the redesigned 360 model, which is a completely different pen that doesn’t have the pronounced triangular design)?
