Art Primo Press-N-Go Empty Marker - Standard by Wise_R - A Top 1000 Reviewer! 05/08/2019
Art Primo Press-N-Go Empty Marker - Standard Well...this little correction pen got me in a flashback to my high school days and mobbin' every where I went! Simply, one of the greatest instruments in my every day carry! It is just a fun little pen that I can not stop writing with it! I filled mine with silver Montana Black dye ink (I could never get myself to like using Montana dye ink or marker paint and I do not know why because their spray paint is one of my favorites), and boy, oohhh, boyy! Did it pop! The silver Montana Black dye ink was very shiny and chrome like, but I will get back to the pen review. The body looks cheap, but I can assure you it is very durable, and very squeeze-able (sp?). It has been about a month give or take that I have been using it, and I have ran over 250ml through it (filled it with Dr.Guts once I ran out of the silver Montana Black). The only con I can really think of with what I have experienced is clogging the valve tip. This pen does not like semi-wet buff/paint/repaint trash cans etc. It tends to clog the tip. From what I can put together from using white out corrections pens from my past and then using the AP correction pen now is that the AP correction pen has a metal tip with a metal stem valve that compresses and allows the ink/paint to flow while you squeeze. Ok, I am older so I like to tinker and take shii apart and see how things work! The older correction pens had different style metal tips, so I dug out a correction pen in which had the closest resemblence in metal tips (I know, I know, I am rambling now!). I discovered that the metal tip on the correction pen I found had the similar metal feed tip, but this company used a ball bearing like roller ball pen with the spring valve. I am losing track of my review, the AP press-n-go with the stem type valve tip is superior for graffiti specific use over having a ball bearing type valve tip because over time the wear on the ball bearing tip would cause the ball bearing to get lost over time. The stem style valve tip on the AP press-n-go does show wear over time and can be cleaned when it gets stuck/clogged.

Now, to deal with the complaint of clogged or stuck stems you can clean it with isopropyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, or acetone and get back on the road, but you WILL find yourself rubbing your tip off (no pun! Hahaha) or solvent flush again. Well, what I figured was since a ball bearing tip correction pen has the round ball to roll smoothly even on those semi-wet repainted or buffed surfaces, how can I make the AP press-n-go just as consistent if not better than the tried and true white out pens. I clogged my AP press-n-go constantly most especially when I would write fast which meant you press down harder on the surface you are writing on. So, let me get to the final point, what I did to reduce cloggin or sticking stem tips was I filed down the metal feed tip (NOT the inner stem valve itself) to a rounder edge so it does not score the writing surface and cause the stem to get clogged or stuck while hitting off.

It is not a big deal to actually effect the review and greatness of the AP press-n-go because I am rating it a 5 out of 5 star. If you are a true ink head, handstyler, mobber, then you best have this in your every day carry and if not, you best hop on it! It will change your game! Make shii fun! Establish better handstyle! Get you up! Get you up in smaller spots! Get you up in spots where you can not get a marker/mop/can/scribe into! And it is mad cheap in price!

Don't know about it; be about it, gang! The way GR was acting in the review, I felt the same way! Too legit to quit!

Pilot Refill Ink - 30ml by Wise_R - A Top 1000 Reviewer! 04/04/2019
Pilot Refill Ink - 30ml What could I say that has not been said about this ink. It is the good ol' reliable cheap high quality go to ink for any ink-head broke or ballin! I have throwing up handstyles with this ink since I was 12 years old. The black is the only color I have always used so I could only say what I know and have experience with. This ink dries hella fast! So if you are not working on and in an area where if you spill, splatter, drop a nib and have it bounce everywhere spraying ink droplets and splash on your mom's kitchen counter/sink/carpet/furniture/washer and dryer/and the likes, then I highly suggest wearing gloves, laying out painters plastic cover, cardboard, and other staining protective measures. This ink does not really have a strong odor that I notice (and NO I am not huffing this ink). It mixes very well with other alcohol based inks and paints. When mixing with paint before using marker/mop/etc. Make sure to give it a good shake to mix it back together. I have used it mixed with 901 Soultip OTR paint plus a dab or two of black Magic Ink in mops and did not have a problem with it drying out the mop head. It can make the mixture a bit runny in a mop. Some like it drippy some like it clean! One thing I did notice when mixed with Magic Ink and used in valve type felt nib markers is if you do not use your marker ofter it can cause sticking issues with the valve which a couple pumps of the nib can fix becareful because the marker feed can hold excess ink when prepping the nib and it will pour out of the feed when hitting up or into the cap when pocketing or storing. Also, if you do not use your valve type marker often this ink can dry the nib out and cause sticky build up on the felt nib which causes streaking. These are not any faults with the ink and thats what makes graff fun because you learn techniques to make yoh a better ink head! It is all about experimenting, getting sloppy, and learning what works best for you as an ink head. Great ink for a cheap price! You cant go wrong! Get it! Fill it! Write it! Btw, Art Primo is the only store I know that sells this 60ml ink well for $2.99. Don't know about it,BE about it!
