Thank you for this review. On my monitor, this looks very close to Waterman Red. Can someone who has used both inks make a comment?

Waterman Red is a bright,light, pure red. Levenger Fireball is not really red nor orange, it is something between red and orange. Will have to find sometime to do a comparison.

I have no experience with the Waterman, but the Levenger is my favorite ink to write with. I can say that on my monitor the images appear almost too red. Fireball is more orange. Great red to write with though.

As an aside I was told that Levenger is discontinuing production of Fireball and a few others, so if you love it like I do you had better stock up.

Hope to see a comparison of the waterman and fireball soon.

Hi there! There's a comparison of Levenger Fireball & Waterman Red at the bottom of my review of Levenger Fireball. Hard to tell on the comparison, but Fireball leans just a little more orange.

Best, Ann

Yup, it also looks too red on my screen but I am not sure how to adjust the scan setting. Waterman Red is a bit too bright for me so I haven't use for a long time, will do a comparison when I dig up the bottle.

I use Fireball to do highlighting and write short summary sentences. It is too bright for extensive writing, but that's just me.

I love the brightness of it. It's just a nice peppy red to work with, IMHO. I use it exclusively in all but four of my pens. The others are devoted to BSB.
