Noodler’s Dragon Catfish Pink was created to be used as a highlighting ink. Because I’ve had some of these specialty inks turn to goo in the sample bottle, I would not put them in a fountain pen.
I use these inks in Preppy Refillable Highlighters – I also buy the converter because it seems to keep things a little more simple for me. Honestly, I’m not sure I’d buy it again because there are so many wonderful highlighting pens out there already.
What do you think?
Noodler’s Cayenne is a wonderfully rich reddish orange. Lots of potential for shading, too.
Have you tried this one? If not, you may want to try a sample of it.
Bad Belted Kingfisher was one of my first ink reviews, you can read it here. (Brian Goulet stopped in to comment!)
Noodler’s Dragon Catfish Orange is more of a peach-pink color in this swab. I have found that some of the highlighter inks fade a bit more easily than other inks – even with my samples always stored in a dark cabinet. Or maybe there has been a labeling problem – I’m really not sure what is going on here.
Here’s a link to Goulet Pens – I’d suggest checking out the reviews before buying this ink and even then I would never ever put this into a fountain pen. Never. Ever. I’ve seen first-hand the problem with Year of the Golden Pig – it arrived completely as expected and turned to goop pretty quickly. Scary stuff.
Happy Independence Day to US readers!
Noodler’s Habanero is a beautiful ink. It has lots of potential for shading and the color is stunning on most papers. It’s a super-duper-no-kidding wet writer.
Another ink made for highlighters from Noodler’s. I’ve not used this one other than to swab it, but the others I have work well.
Side Note: Have you ever seen Catfish on MTV? I came across it one rainy day late last year and can’t look away now.
Don’t quote me on this, but I believe Army Green has seen several formula changes. First it was thought to be too yellow, and then not, and then back to the original formula? I could be thinking of something else. In my swab, I like this color – a good rich green.
Do you know the story here? Or maybe there is no story and I’m thinking of another green ink?
It’s there. I promise. You just can’t see it without a fancy blue light.
I’ve not tried this ink in any kind of serious way, but there are lots of people out there who love it.

Noodler’s makes several highlighting inks. These work wonderfully in Preppy refillable markers and highlighters. (Perhaps in other brands, too, but this is what I’ve used.)
The color of this one is definitely bright pink and doesn’t remind me much at all of peaches. That said, I like it quite a bit.
