Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall Good Overall good ink. I used it in my medium nib green Kaweco Sport converted to eyedropper. Unlike many other reviews, I rarely had issues with the ink being too wet or feathering. I work in an office environment where I constantly have to fill out forms on poor quality paper and this ink performs great. It is a dark green ink, but I would not call it a green-black. It's definitely green with little subtleties in that aspect. There is some nice fluctuations of color and density depending on how much ink is laid, which I love. I got this as an ink sample and I'm the bottle of ink that was purchased in the end was the Air Corps Blue Black. The Air Corps ink hardly bleeds, even on cheap Field Notes paper, which is important to me. Bad Green Gator, despite its lovely color, does bleed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Green Gator My primary green in has been Green Marine for quite some time, but I always like trying out new greens to see if they're an improvement. In my opinion, Bad Green Gator is not. It spreads out on the page so my XF looks like an FM. Feathering is slight, but present, especially on non-premium papers. Bleedthrough not intolerable, but worse than I'd like on even on premium papers. FWIW, the color is nice. It's less bright than Green Marine. You wouldn't mistake it for black by any means; it's just a deeper Forest-y green.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great green I liked this green a lot, and the permenance. It has a deep color that's close to the HS colors without fading or thining. It can appear chunky at times, with texture like it's dirty. I like this, but it could be a turn off. I did have trouble cleaning it, as my Konrad coughed up bits of dried gunk when flushing it. The 1-star ding is from bleed-through which it did very mildly on Rhodia, but was more annoying on Luechtturm letting dots through the page. Just got worse on cheaper papers. Best green I've used.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great color but a very wet ink. I really like this color. The ink is smooth and flows great.However this ink is very wet and has a strong issue with feathering. I have to write really fast to avoid making big blots of ink visible on the other side of the paper. I cannot use this ink on papers on which I print my work for review or on my cheap note books. I have even tried using my fine nib fountain pen but I still get bleed through to the other side. On good quality papers, this ink is smooth and does generate some texture in color tones. It dries faster than the Noodler's bullet proof black.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very bleedy This ink bleeds more than any other ink I have tried. (dozens) Even in my driest finest pens I still got feathering even on Rhoda paper. For me this is a problem. The color is OK but not really great for me. I couldn't get past the feathering and bleeding.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad gator I'm having trouble loving this ink. The color is delightfully unique, but the ink comes out so fast that it seems determined to feather on every surface, including clairefontaine 90g paper. It does seem to dry fast and it is quite water proof.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible flow The flow of this ink is something like a running water hose. Be sure to order a sample of this ink to try with your pen before getting the whole bottle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pretty good ink, if you're into dark green. My experiences with dark green are limited to Iroshizuku, Private Reserve Ebony Green, and this. The Iroshizuku was not dark enough but flowed well, the Private Reserve was a gorgeous dark, dark green but is very, very dry ink. Bad Green Gator walks the line between these two. I don't regret this purchase.
