I filled the barrels of two Pilot Preppies identically - made sure to seal with silicone and o-rings, tightly sealed. The other day, I opened my fine point (the black one in the pix) and a big blob of ink plopped onto the paper. I inspected the pen and saw that the feed was flooded with ink. But not the feed of the other one. Does anyone have an explanation for this? Apart from the blob mishap nothing is amiss and even with the flooded feed the pen writes fine. I'm just curious. I've learned from this why some people don't like filling the barrel directly. From now on, I'm refilling cartridges. They are just Preppies but I don't like this.
Hello folks, I purchased a Jinhao X750 and a Jinhao X450. Both are giving me similar problems. Basically, with the X750, I wrote approximately two pages and all the ink in the converter was gone. It gushes like crazy and writes down a thick inky line that takes forever to dry due to the sheer amount of ink laid down. It also sometimes lays down blobs of ink randomly. Now I have taken out the feed and put it back in so its snug and correctly placed, I have flushed the pen before using it, and I have changed converters to see if that was an issue. All to no avail. I like the design of these pens so I would like to use them. Any solutions out there? Thanks!
