    get some duck tape or electrical tape and tape around it, it might stop the ink from leaking it does on mops most of the time

    return it man..if its cracked or someshit thats not ur fault..unless you did it

    if you just bought it chances are something happened when it was shipped

    just use superglue around the seals. it will make it hard as hell to refill but it will fix your problem. and so you know, next time dont buy a flopen. out of all the otr markers its like the most likely to make a huge mess in your pocket and ruin good underwears

    These are one of the 50 reasons as to why NOT to buy OTR's......but if it wasnt your fault, check it out and see whats wrong, if you wanna try to fix it, i HIGHLY recommend (like MoNkEy said) Electrical tape...and if you wanna thicken your ink....kool aid powder.....:D

    And by the way....MoNkEy im in love with your Sig Clip haha...i watch it for like 50 seconds before i post......

    that probably means you pumped it too much and the ink stayed inside the cap instead of coming out of the nib. thats what happened to me when i got my first flowpen. or, if you over-twisted the cap you cracked the seal thing and the valve isn't closed so the ink leaks out.

    if you unscrew the cap on a flow pen and look behind the nib is there a little circular sponge? if there is cut up alittle peice of foam like the circular one for good flow and put it in. that helps absorb some extra ink
    works well with zigs so why not with OTRS
    they are both the same thing
    but to answer the thickening ink part
    razor always says add koolaid powder
    it helps thicken it and makes it smell good too
    or cigarette ash does the trick
