Noodler's Nib Creaper Piston-Fill Refillable Rollerball Pen - Clear Demonstrator is rated 3.9553 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noodlers Roller Nibs vs Visconti Eco-roller The new Noodler?s Creaper roller-ball has a finer point flow than the Visconti Eco-roller (not available from Goulet Pens) and is much more reasonably priced ($14 vs. $140). They both write very well, so the choice focuses more on fine vs. medium with reference to had pressure and everyday use pen. I like them both with reference to smoothness, although the Noodler?s Creaper, because of the more pointed shape of the roller-ball nib, tends to write more heavily (leaves a dent), whereas the Visconti Eco-roller tends to flow more clearly and lightly ? again the individual hand pressure preference must dictate the choice rather than the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts easy, every time... but buy some spare tips I use this pen for things that FPs don't work well on, like semi-glossy labels or carbon duplicates. Running Noodler's Purple Heart in mine and it writes very nicely. After about 2 months, quite suddenly, the original tip started leaking and quit writing. Upon examination, the ball had gotten pushed back into the tip, ruining the tip. Replaced the tip with a spare I'd bought and all was perfect again. I've never had the leaking issues others describe until the tip went bad. After replacement, it didn't leak. Really nice little pen for a mere pittance! And the cost of the extra tips is negligible, so you can keep them writing and writing and writing... you get the picture. :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has it's place Got this refillable rollerball to use some of my vast ink supply beyond where my fountain pens would be appropriate. In my case I always carry my own pens for guest payment signatures on credit card transactions and thermal paper. Works great. Gives an extremely fine line, and the bonus is I'm using some of my fountain pen inks I'm less fond of. Only problem, is it does leak ink, so care is needed. Still, all my fountain pens I've taken out and about manage to leak ink into the cap and around the nib. Also, the rollerball isn't the smoothest, but still serviceable for it's intended purpose. Recommended, with purpose in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Rollerball Pen is 5 inches capped, 5 3/4 inches posted. Writes a nice consistant medium line. I own two of these pens. The first, I filled with Noodler's black and it burped on me. I found it's important to keep the air in the ink chamber to a minimum. The other pen is filled with baystate blue and I've not had any leaks since the first. I do feel they take a bit of extra attention due to one having leaked, and having to bleed excess air from them which usually requires a paper towel. Also, be careful not to over tighten the blind cap. I cracked the barrel of one. It didn't effect the operation of the pen though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. A rollerball is heresy to many Pen Geeks. I bought this for my checkbook companion on a lark and then fell in love with it as just a terrific little pen. I writes well and filled with Noodler's X-Feather has become a staple in my daily carry. It works with even the lightest of touch and puts out a constant fine line. I did a few drawings with it and was impressed. Great buy

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept and I wanted to like it, but... I enjoy Noodler's pens, but, sadly, I think this pen misses the mark. When I first received it and inked it up, the rollerball squeaked like a rabid mouse. I wasn't sure if this was part of the design or if the rollerball itself was dirty, so I took the pen apart and cleaned it. Alas, it still sounded like a mouse in need of medical treatment. The pen went unused for maybe three weeks. Apparently, this is too long. The rollerball stopped working and there was nothing I could do to revive it. Also, I find that the threaded disk that keeps the clip on the cap on backs out very easily. So easily, in fact, that it came lose during normal usage on multiple occasions. I love the idea of a rollerball pen using fountain pen inks, but it pains me to say that this one still needs some work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Economical Pen - Fun to Use I have been using this pen for a couple of months with Bad Blue Heron ink and I find that it writes smoothly and is a fun pen to use. At one point (after I had reduced the reservoir volume to keep the air space at less than 50 percent), it did start skipping and had reduced ink flow - I eventually figured out that some ink had dried and plugged the little hole near the tip that allows air to enter the pen as the ink get used. Cleaning the area by gently scrubbing with a soft toothbush and warm water fixed the problem and the pen has been working fine ever since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good indoor pen. Many reviews mention leaking and I believe that I have figured out the issue. Something in the feed/fill system, perhaps the ebonite, is EXTREMELY sensitive to pressure, humidity, and temperature changes. If you cap the pen, throw it in your pocket, and walk from a 75 degree air conditioned house to the 100 degrees, 80% humidity outside, you can watch ink flow up into the feed and spill out. This can be solved by exposing the pen to the new environment uncapped first, but that's annoying. Other than that the pen is great! And I think it looks cool too.
