Hey, having a decision here. I don't know whether or not to use some black-capped Winsor and Newton inks in a Zebra R-301. I know you can't use them in fountain pens, but I'm unsure of rollers(this is my first refillable). Any help?

If these are drawing inks as I think they are, many drawing inks have a shellac in them and could dry up or clog the roller ball. Are you trying to refill the roller ball cartridge?

I found the WN ink to be too cloggy for the Zebra. You can, however, use any regular fountain pen ink in the Zebra.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
