Today we are looking at Colorverse #7 Hubble Zoom from Spaceward Season 1. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Hubble Zoom is a medium warm brown. It's not quite a red-brown, but has more red than your average brown.
In large swabs, when pooled, the ink looks black. After two days the ink is still not dry.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 70 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering in every nib size as well as a bit of bleeding, so it's not an ink I would recommend for cheap paper.
I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point Copper on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I don't like this ink. The dry time was really long at 70 seconds, and I'm just not crazy about the color.
