I want to put Noddler 'Year of the Pig' (it's just Bulletproof Noodler's Firefly really) in a Noodler's Bush Pen or into a Refillable Preppy to use as a highlighter.... what's my best move? OR is there a better idea? I already love the ink in a Kaweco Sport Stub, but I'm ready to have something to use in my bible. Helpneeded, because I've watched Goulet's video on trimming the brush or replacement brushes to alter the line and wetness, but I've seen all sorts of people complaining about drying problems in the preppy when filling the body instead of using converter or eyedeopper converter...

Thoughts?

*by the way, I know this could go in either this thread or in the 'first stop thread' but didn't want to get the panties of the 'but it's not a fountain pen (preppy) or it's not a nib (Ahab brush).... if I should cross post, please suggest so. -B

I dont think any liquid ink will work well in a bible. Jet pens recommends these highlighter pencils for the bible. https://www.jetpens.com/Kutsuwa-HiLiNE-Highlighter-Pencils/ct/2337

 

I currently use a pilot parallel with a noodlers yellow highlighter ink (catfish something I believe) for highlighting on printer paper. It is too wet for any textbook Ive come across.

 

I use a preppy highlighter with the same noodlers ink in textbooks and it works much better than the parallel. A few books with thinner pages have bleed through. This was limited to the older wolters kluwer books. I sent them a few emails and my newer wolters books are much better this year. Maybe they listened to me. The preppy has been going two years on the same tip and its still working fine. I cant speak to eyedropper usage because Ive only used it with the converter, which I fill with a syringe.

 

I used a bottle of pelikan duo highlighter ink and it bled less than the noodlers, but was substantially more expensive. It still was not dry enough to use the parallel in a textbook.

Try a FriXion highlighter. They actually are very dry feeling and don't put out a lot of ink, which means they perform pretty well in Bibles.
