I love the line and modest...

I love the line and modest width variation of this pen (from somewhat thin to
not-too-thick), it handles well, and it would be beautiful for medium to larger
drawings--BUT for two problems. It does dry out quickly on a longer stroke, and
at the wet end of the stroke the ink seeps into and spreads out on every paper I
normally use. Not hugely, but too much blur for a small or fine-line drawing. My
Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen (hard) needs to air out a bit before use (it always
comes out of the cap wet and sloppy, then after a few seconds is great), but so
far that hasn't been a fix for using the Pilot. Maybe the trick is to use this
nice tip with a different ink if that's possible.
