The color...

Solar Storm is a bright orange. Seasonally, I would use this ink in the summer.

The large swab doesn't show any sheen or shading, so I would call this a classic orange.

Even in ink drops, this ink doesn't show much shading.

Dry time: Solar Storm dried in 22 seconds (in a medium nib on Rhodia).

Water resistance: Solar Storm is not water resistant. 

Feathering: Solar Storm only feathered on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.

Show through: Solar Storm had medium show through on all of the papers.

Bleeding: Solar Storm only bled on Baron Fig paper, but did well on the other papers.

Other properties: Solar Storm doesn't have any sheen or shading

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (or top to bottom for RSS): Montblanc Lucky Orange, Nemosine Solar Storm 1859, and Diamine Blaze Orange. I think Blaze Orange is the closest to Solar Storm. To see the Nemosine swabs together, click here

Longer writing:

I used a Pilot 912 FA on Tomoe River paper. 

Overall, this ink is pretty well-behaved and has an average dry time. I would recommend this as a classic orange ink, since it lacks shading or sheen.
