I have this rOtring Initial Pen which I find a very nice writer... as long as I stick to cartridge inks. My pen didn't come with a converter. I dislike cartridge ink... So I thougt: let's put in a standard convertor to solve this. But as soon as I put in my Faber Castell converter (which I thought was a standard international system) my rOtring start to leaks like I hardly ever seen a pen leaking before. My thumb and middelfinger litterly become soaked with ink. (ieuw!)
The inks comes out just between the black plastic thingy at the end of the section and the metal part of the section (see also the attached image). I don't even really touch the black plastic, but touching the end of the metal apperently is already bringing out the flow.
Could this be caused by using the wrong converter? I only can buy the rOtring converters in the shops here in a package of 10 (which I find quite bizarre by the way) and ordering online would make it very pricely due to shipping cost. And I don't want to invest that money in this pen, if the problem is that it's just not that converter-friendly somehow.
Does any one has experience with none-rOtring converters in the Initial (do you see the same misery? And does it do okay with a rOtring converter?) or has an idea what's happening or what I could do different? Could it be the Faber Castell converter not being as standard international as I thought?
