: I was having trouble last night with that 'ribbon' shaped paste in
: the carrot bag too. I don't like it. I like the round paste shape.
: I was using Jamila, so there was no clogging, but the shape was SO
: different. So, I put my smallest pastry tip (#1) in a cone and it
: was FAB. I was doing a design with thicker lines though :)

The 00 tips are as fine as anything I've seen, and I've got the Marpol
tips to compare them to. There's a little "ridgering" at the top end
of the tips I've got and they grip the carrot bag nice to prevent
accidents. For comfort and speed and not having to refill .... good

I get along well better with a naked tip ... but that may be because
as an illustrator I grew up using Sumi brushe and crow quill pens
tools that are notoriously "twitchy" but expressive. Pilot pens and
such give me fits just like metal tips. I also prefer playing oboe
and viola to saxaphone and fretted string instruments. I can't bear
playing synthesized things. I can deal with the "twitchy" thing if
the payoff is sensitivity.
