Noodler's Triple Tail Flex Fountain Pen // Clear Demonstrator
Introducing the newest flex pen from Noodler's! The Triple Tail features a new body resin which is a cotton butyrate mix. It has a more clear body than other clear Noodler's models, and is (almost) completely odor-free. The Triple Tail also features a new three-tined #6 flex steel nib which is smooth as butter and lays down a generous amount of ink with nice line variation. The nib and feed feature a threaded housing.
To fill the pen, submerge the nib and feed into your ink bottle, then move the filler rod two full strokes. Wipe excess ink off, and you're good to write! The entire pen can be disassembled and reassembled by hand.
The Noodler's flex pens were designed for the hands-on tinkerer - they are made to be taken apart and adjusted. The nib and feed twist right out and can be adjusted and heat set for optimal performance. Don't be afraid to get a little ink on your fingers while you learn how to use this pen.
As a simple rule of thumb for writing with a flex pen, just apply slight pressure on your downstrokes, which will spread the tines and increase the line width, achieving that optimal line variation. Make sure to go slowly so that the ink can keep up with your writing. As with any flex pen, it just takes practice!
Due to the residual machining oils used when cutting the feeds for these pens, we highly encourage you to give the pen a good flush before use. We recommend any of the following options: distilled water, water with a touch of dish soap, a pre-packaged pen flush, or a solution of 10% clear ammonia to water. This should resolve most ink flow issues!
