    Just make sure you don't put it in a pen that's ever had any other ink in it.

    I've has Baystate Blue in a Kaweco Dia 2 continuously, since 02-12-2015 and have had no issues whatsoever. No flushing, just refilling and nothing has fallen apart or dissolved. No Martian invasions etc etc.

    Right.........pen hygiene, use only Baystate Blue in less expensive converter pens Parker 45 and the like, no demonstrators or light colored barrels, feeds.
    I have had absolutely no issues using Noodlers in a wild range of pens. Becareful of reds, wild colors in snorkels, etc. - but that is with any ink.
    Been using Noodlers in my P51ís, 61ís, 75ís, Pelikans, Japanese, etc. ever since Noodlers come out; what is that 15 years?
    I will admit that my sac and button fillers are hit or miss though......
    Eyedropers love Noodlers......Bernanke inks really are awesome in EDís

    The problem with this, as it always is, is that "Noodlers" is hardly one ink. Within all those many formulations that Nathan has put together, there are many different behaviors. One simply cannot say, across the board, that Noodlers inks are either flawless or the worst thing ever. Many of their inks are fine, some are problematic. They almost have to be addressed on a case by case basis.

    And that doesn't even address his inconsistency in batches, though I haven't sampled many of the inks in the last couple years, as I've pretty much walked away.
