The ink in this pen is...
The ink in this pen is a bright yellow, slightly orange. I put switched the nib with my fine Preppy and the yellow was practically unreadable, but in the M nib it is very readable even on white paper. The nib writes smoothly. I've been using this pen for the past 2 weeks and it hasn't dried up.

I have had good experiences...
I have had good experiences with Jet Pen's Platinum Preppy pens - and you can't beat the price. My one yellow one I bought (of many) malfunctioned, but it was perfect for lectures, and underlining printouts.
The problem with Jet Pen's is their shipping costs. I have a real problem with what they are charging to mail a $3.00 pen to you. You have to order alot of stuff to get free shipping.
They are on Amazon, but the same pens are $14.00 because Amazon controls shipping costs, so they get their money that way. It makes me sad, because I can't afford to buy from them - and get these nice pens - simply because their shipping costs are so high...

I like the other colors...
I like the other colors of Preppy's, but I'm not sure why anyone would want yellow ink (it very barely show on white paper).
My other complaint is that this on dried up after only 2 days of installing the cartridge. Yes,
it really did dry up - since the pen is clear and the cartridge is translucent I could see all the ink was gone.
I guess I will now put a brown ink cartridge in (since it is a .03 nib) and hopefully that will last. So I won't have wasted my $3.
