Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Hellfire.

Grade: 76.25%.

Paper: Norcom Composition.

 

I bought Noodler's Hellfire because I usually stick to black and white media when drawing/writing, and I thought I needed to mix things up a bit. First things first, despite its name, Hellfire is a pink colored ink. It doesn't lean toward red, orange, or even yellow. It is a bright transparent pink color that's meant to be used as a highlighter ink.

 

Not many things make me miss taking notes in college, but as someone who color coded everything, it does make me wish I had Hellfire back then to break up the doldrums of Business Ethics. The first thing that pops into my mind when I look at Hellfire is cotton candy or watermelon. I don't really consider this an ink that I would use to write with every day. Not because of embarrassment, although I did get some looks at work, but because it's a little too hard for me to read on its own. Which, honestly, is not its main function.

 

Like I said, Hellfire is a highlighter ink that does its job well. It pops off the page under normal lighting and will even fluoresce under a black light. Don't expect Blue Ghost levels of fluorescence. Think more of reflective safety vest at night. It drys very quickly and won't bleed through cheap paper. It's not a water fast ink, but you can see that it will put up a fight and resist being washed away. It will feather easily, but let's be honest, this ink should go in a felt tip pen and not in a flexible dip pen.

 

Overall, I love this ink. And if you love choosing your own ink colors and feel like trying out a refillable highlighter pen, then you should definitely check out Noodler's Hellfire.

Thank you for sharing!

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

It was a pleasure. I love getting into the lesser reviewed Noodler's inks.

I love this pink but it reminds me of a favourite - Diamine Hope Pink which I write with (what else?!) and also use as a highlighter. Thank you for a fabulous review!

I don't know why, but Noodler's Hellfire makes my eyes hurt.

I finally got around to taking a picture of Hellfire in a Platinum Preppy. It took about a week of occasional office use for the feed to work out all the yellow ink when I refilled the cartridge.

And here's the reverse so you can see the show through/bleed through.

Haven't tried this one. I have a few of the highlighter inks: Lightning Blue, Georgia Peach, and a big bottle of Dragon Catfish Pink (which I like, but I actually prefer Georgia Peach better colorwise because it's just a little different). And I had a sample of Dragon Catfish Green, but it seems to be out of stock a lot of places these days (that one actually went into the Preppy highlighter pen that cam with the DCP; the others are all in some cheapie Japanese brush pens that came with bottles of Kung Te Cheng -- which work great as highlighter pens, BTW...).

If I make it up to the Commonwealth Pen show, I may stop by the Noodler's table and ask if Nathan would consider doing a purple HL ink.... :rolleyes:

Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the lovely review! I like the fact that it can be used to write with, despite being a highlighter ink :)

Nice. What pen have you decided to pair it with?

A purlple HL ink would be amazing. I actually use Dragon's Napalm as my 'go to' HL ink. I find that the feed and felt tip on the Preppy HL does an amazing job taming it. So you might be able to get away with choosing a regular purple and just using it as a HL.

Thank you very much. i can't wait to try Noodler's Lightning Blue HL ink. I also think it would be cool to see if you can write with it.

Subjectively speaking, I'd give this ink a -1 (minus one) for color but an 11 (eleven) for your review.
