Got this pen as a gift and the first ink cartridge I tried leaked so I put a second one in and it doesnt write consistently. I am constantly re-tracing letters and words. Also, it doesnt write dark black. Its almost a dark grey. Maybe a bit darker. Ive contacted APC twice about this but they dont respond to my emails.

Could the ink ball be clogged from the first cartridge leaking. I dont see and ink leaking now from the second cartridge.

Thanks for your help. Love the feel of the pen but the writing is frustrating. Not impressed with the whole ink ball thing. APC says its a Schmidt Ink Ball on their site. APCs website is lacking on the support side of things.
