HI, I'm just wondering what any arty types opinions might be on:

inks
The Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks I've tried in the past have been fairly pathetic, particularly the black. What are a good brand/line?

Rotring Rapidograph Pens
I bought a rotring rapidograph, but I don't seem to have much luck with it. The ink flow is rubbish, despite being barnd new. It's a 0.3 and it just seems to cut off in the middle of flow. I've taken one back to the shop allready for the same reasons. I've varied the pressure and I clean the tip regularly, but it just wont produce a consistent line. Would I maybe have better luck with a thicker pen?

(p.s) I intended to post this in the apprentice forum as there were arty threads in there allready but I wasn't paying attention and appear to have stuck it in here. Ho hum.
