Mixed Success

I have two of these both of which are in Pilot Custom 74 Pens. One has worked fine with good and steady flow of ink and the second one not so much. The issue I am having with the second one is that ink will completely stop flowing to the nib unit. When this happens a quick up and down shake clears the blockage. I don't know if a vacuum develops, or a problem with the ink (Caran d'Ache vibrant green). For what it's worth, I have seen other reviews (not on this site) that also experienced the same issue.

Super convenient with lots of ink

I was a little afraid about this converter given some of the reviews, but I could ignore the ink capacity in a Japanese pen. I now have a bunch of Pilots with these converters in them and they are miles ahead of other converters. Huge ink capacity and super quick filling. Filling is so easy if you make sure to submerge bellow the filler hole. Using it with more temperamental or maintenance heavy inks would probably be more annoying, as you can't really clean them out as easily, but otherwise, this is a great converter.
