Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would add this to my previous... In November I reviewed this ink. I would add to that review that today I was having trouble with my Parker Arrow. It had in it Lie de The (q.v.) and that was too dry for the feed in my Arrow. I got the idea to try and lubricated ink and the only one I had on hand was my old sample vial of Cactus Fruit Eel. I put it in and Voila! A different pen. Since I use a re-useable cartridge in my Arrow the nib/feed is dry. It usually takes some time for inks to migrate into the feed. Not with this Eel! Wow! Lubricity indeed! I had just about sworn off Noodler's for various reasons but this ink has won me back, at least to this ink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Eel (perhaps all of them?) ages oddly I bought this ink for use in a Pelikan pen whose piston seemed to have too much friction. I like it a lot, but just noticed something odd. In the pen, the ink ages in such a way that its properties change. This Pelikan writes first time every time, and the ink has been in the pen several months at least. Now, it no longer dries on the page; it will smear a long as 15 minutes after writing. I refilled the pen with fresh ink out of the bottle, and this was not the case; it dried normally. I have noticed that many Noodler's inks have a smell of some non-aqueous solvent about them. I suspect that one of these is more volatile than water and escapes from the nib over time, leaving behind an ink that has different characteristics. So...don't leave this ink in a pen for a prolonged period...it will not dry completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warning; Buy this and you're hooked forever. Absolutely the most luscious, ripe nectar Nathan has ever developed. Looks so good I'd probably drink it if I didn't think it'd kill me. Remember what it's like on a real hot day to take a sip of ice-cold pure Pomegranate juice? Yep, it's that good of a color. Well behaved. Who knew a Manly-man like me could use this color and still be comfortable with his inner self? HA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love Utterly in love with this one. I was a bit skeptical when I first got the ink drop sample, but once I loaded it on a pen and started writing with it, I was hooked. Beautiful shade of magenta, the ink flows like you're writing on butter. (Hmm is writing on butter smooth? I gotta try that). Anyway, a thousand times recommended, one of the best Noodler's inks I've acquired to date. The color seems to shimmer on the paper and looks very silky. I will definitely be getting my feet wet with more Eel inks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "slap your face" ink Cactus Fruit Eel is a startling color. It practically screams at me. The combination of pink, magenta, fuschia, red and day-glow brightness makes it practically bubble over with enjoyment. Not for everybody, nor for every occassion, it's certain to spice up any letter and thank you note that the writer doesn't want to go unnoticed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a fun ink! Love this ink and really can't recommend it enough. The flow is so incredibly smooth, the color is vivid, and it's exactly what I thought it was going to be and more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just like Saguaro Wine, almost Under Saguaro Wine I penned a review in which I stated that I could hardly tell the difference between Cactus Fruit and Saguaro Wine. After ordering and writing with both, I still can't. So the swabs were darned accurate in depicted these two. I would give a slight edge to this ink because of its lubricity. Both are good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Luscious fall color So far I have only tried this ink in my Mont Blanc fine point using a converter. It is a wonderful color for grading papers, writing letters, and taking notes in my journal. Like my other Noodler's ink, Dragon's Napalm, the Cacus Fruit Eel takes a bit longer to dry than J. Herbin or some others. But it's such a lovely, rich color--somewhere between blackberry and marionberry--that it's worth the extra dry time. I also want to say that no ink in my 25+ year old burgundy slim Mont Blanc (one of my least favorite pens, despite its gold nib) has ever flowed as well as this Noodler's Cactus Fruit Eel. Recommended!
