Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Noodler's Gruene Cactus Eel

Let's take a look at a green ink that I do like. Unlike Moss Green, this ink is pretty good. It belongs in the darker end of the green family, but it's not going to be confused with a green-black. It's a definite green. A little bit darker and richer than Noodler's Hunter Green.  It's actually pretty close to the green Franken-ink that I made a while back, but it doesn't require any mixing or danger.

It's a member of the eel family, and that gives it a little extra lubrication. It's smooth, but it's not too smooth. Some inks tend to skate across the page, and it can make your writing sloppy because the nib doesn't have any real resistance against the page. This eel ink isn't too slippery. It's just right for my persnickety Pilot Vanishing Point. It tends to squeak and stutter with many inks, but it works well with a few of the juicier inks, and this one fits well.

How about water resistance?
