    Thats what I do when I fill a black one up with my home made ink but it just works for 4 tags then goes streaky?

    I think it's because I'm not squeezing it enough ;)

    Not sure, prolly the marker though cause it has the pump in it still


    EDIT- Do not take out the pump or its pretty much useless. I took it out and now the ink just pours through it.

    cesk, its either your ink is too thick or your ink base isn't the same as the pilot's. you can refill it to the top and wait for it to soak in depending on how thin it is. once its soaked in, put some alcohol in it, and screw it back on, tip it over and let it soak through so it cleans out the remaining ink in the nib. DO NOT SHAKE IT it'll leak all over the place.

    i had to refill mine all the way to the top about 3times and put alittle bit of alcohol, before it actually worked without leakage or streaks.

    Coool. I'll try that man, and nah, my ink is pretty thick, its a Flexo with thinner ink. I'm going to try filling up a broad point (small ones) again and add some alcohol.

    Thanks a bunch guys.

    Haha, I would say only one worth getting is black, the blue fades unbelievaly fast on slaps, same with green. Red lasted longer than blue on some slaps for me. But Black is still pimping, so I would mainly recommend Black for slaps. For tags blue and black. :D
