Longer writing: 

I used a broad TWSBI Eco Pink on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow at the beginning of the page, and actually felt a bit dry toward the end of the page.


Overall, it's a nice color and has some pretty shading. In some pens it feels a bit dry to me, but other than that it's pretty well behaved.
