    Well, like it's been said. The ink itself is better and more permanent.
    And the magnum has that horrible smell that if it opens in your pocket even a little you know it's open. Pilots do have a smell but nothing compared to magnums.

    If anything, pilots are better just by the difference in smell. (Not really but yeah, magnums just smell nasty)

    Thanks everyone. I was expecting real asshole-ish answers. Who carries Pilots? Staples?

    its a good body marker, but the ink inside is too thick to flow through the nib. its very streaky, unless you pump it up alot and write really slowly. unipaint silvers are much better, and rarely ever streak. the silver krink ink isn't nearly as good as what you could make by yourself.

    and do not put gk in a valve action marker. it'll clog up, and streak alot. put it in a mop because no matter how thin you thin it out, it'll clog up sooner or later, and will streak.

    Well depends how thin you made your GK, I use a 40% paint and 60% Thinner and stain. It might flow, but not as well... I woud recommend you put it in a Kiwi mop without a regulator, or a mini-mop.

    I dont care HOW thin u think it is, it'll eventually streak.

    Thanks bro, but I already put it in a bingo marker, that shouldnt get clogged should it?. I put probably 60% paint and 39% thinner and 1% dot3.
    while i'm here I might as well ask, how do i add flix to my posts?? Isn't it some kind of code shit?!

    Speaking the truth.

    Don't add brake fluid to paint mixtures, it really doesn't help much, if at all. Put it in a mop/kiwi/bingo/etc. (Btw i have had horrible luck with kiwi's, the nibs fall off after 4 tags) But that may just be me. As for the pics are you adding ? or are you talking about sigs?
