I got a Cross Burgundy and 23k Gold Solo Medium Nib Fountain Pen without the converter so I wrote to Cross and asked them what converter I should buy. Their representative was very helpful and told me that the 8751 (green cartridge) would do. The Cross price is $5.00 plus 4.95 shipping -- you can order by phone via the rep or on their website; Amazon's was 6.95 and as I am prime no shipping, so I ordered from here.

The back of the package tells you how to put the converter into the pen pictorially and while the converter was a little stiff getting in it did so with a little extra push and fit the Solo well, I have had no leaks, and most of all I can use my Noodler's Fountain Pen Ink, Baystate Concord Grape, 3oz. bottle ink so I am happy with the converter and Cross customer service. The converter works as it should, is made in Germany & can be used for the Solo, Townsend and Aventura lines. HTH /TKL

Can't really go wrong with the Cross converters. They work well. They don't cause the pen to leak and they seem to feed the ink very well. Mine haven't broken after a lot of use and the threads are still OK on mine. They don't seem to have a tendency to cross-thread. Note that there are screw-on and push-on types of converters. The plungers (pistons) haven't worn out or caused problems in any of my Cross converters.

Here is something you might want to know and I'm writing this just from memory, so I might be wrong: Some Cross pens use screw on converters and some others use push on converters. The front portions of both screw-on and push-on converters form a tight leak-proof seal with another part of the pen in front of them. If a Cross pen takes a screw-on converter, you can still use a push-on converter in it. It will seal the same way, but you just won't be using the threads inside the pen. On the other hand, I think I remember that you cannot use a screw-on converter in a non-threaded pen.

Here are some other possibly important things: The last I knew (some time ago), Cross only sold two colors of ink: black and blue. Cross inks are identical to the Pelikan inks, except that Pelikan comes in many colors. The Cross and Pelikan ink bottles are almost identical. I'm sure they're made by the same company. I was also told by one fountain pen merchant that they were the same.

My advice is not to buy Cross or Pelikan ink. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it or that it won't work. But if you want real quality, then buy Private Reserve ink. It's the best I know of. Private Reserve inks come in a good color selection and they are vivid on paper!

I ordered this converter for my Cross Bailey Medalist fountain pen. It works perfectly, allows one to use any fountain pen ink on the market instead of being limited to Cross ink, and it's more economical than buying cartridges. How economical? If the converter holds 0.5 ml or so of ink (which is pretty close, I believe), then a standard, $10, 50 ml bottle of ink would yield about 75 - 90 refills. The same $10 will only buy about 12 cartridges.

I had read some reviews that said the converter leaked, or that it didn't generate enough vacuum, but most of the complaints related to the fact that it doesn't draw ink all the way to the top of the converter. The answer to that is, simply, it can't. The piston does not extend all the way to the end of the converter, where the end of the converter tube mates with the feed, so there is air space left at the bottom of the converter tube when the the piston is fully extended. When you retract the piston, that air is drawn upward ahead of the ink, and there is no way to expel it; therefore, it's impossible for the converter to draw ink all the way to the top of the converter. This is true, by the way, of virtually all fountain pen converters.

I'm a pen junkie and these refills are for my Cross Fountain Pen which is the best pen I've ever owned. I love it.

They are easy to use and do not leak, I would rate this product as excellent.

Good new converter. Reliable feeding of ink. I haven't had too many problems yet other than the mess I get on my fingers from playing around with the ink so often.

Edit 08/23/2013: After a few years of experience, I'm having a problem with these green piston converters. They are leaky leaky leaky in my travel pens. Just a mess when I open them up. They leak from the middle, they leak from the back. Eventually enough ink will leak into the pen body and my start dribbling out of everywhere. I don't have problems with cartridges doing this, because they don't have so many places for ink to leak from except to flow to the nib.

Going to apply silicon grease to all the leaky parts of the piston converter this weekend. Hopefully it works in sealing up the leaks.

Style Name: Fountain CartridgeColor: Black
I originally got two packs of these cartridges when I got my first fountain pen, a Cross Century II. I didn't know much about fountain pens, so these cartridges were an easy way to get ink. The ink flows nicely and is a rich black.

I was a bit timid when I first tried to install one as I was afraid to push too hard and break my nice new pen, I thought I had pushed it in enough, but tried to write and no ink flowed, so I tried again more forcefully. After installing a few of these, I now know that you must press hard to break the ball seal that holds the ink in. Trust me, you will know if you break the seal or not.

I still have a pack and a half of these left, as I now have a converter. Not only does the converter hold more ink, but it also gives you the choice of different inks. Converters are more economical too, with these you are spending more than $0.50 per fill, when with a converter you will spend less than $0.10.
