Anything other than Cross pen refills?
I apologize for all the pen questions lately. I'm so new at making pens (I've made a total of 9 pens and 2 pencils), and I really appreciate the experience that can be tapped into here. Thanks so much for the help I've already received.
I'm buying my pen kits from PSI. They include Cross refills and so far I'm not at all happy with the way they write.
Every pen I've made has to be "started" after it sits for a short period of time. The first few strokes don't release any ink.
Now, a pen I made today, leaves blotches -- small puddles of ink -- as it's being written with.
I've looked at other pen kit suppliers and they all seem to use these same Cross refills.
Do the higher end kits include higher end refills? I've only used the lower end pen kits (not funline)... slimline, comfort, designer, trimline. If I'm just getting what I'm paying for and the higher end kits have better refills, I can live with that. I'll buy higher end kits.
I just don't know.
