Kokuyo Campus Adhesive-Bound Notebook - A4 - Dotted 6 mm Rule - 40 Sheets - KOKUYO NO-201BT

Paper quality is so good! There is little shadowing and my pens move so smoothly. I only wish that they made the B5 ones with the same paper (weight wise) and with more sheets.
Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 03 Fine Nib - Purple Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 28

I didn't get this one from JetPens, but from eBay. Regardless, it's the same product, so I thought I'd review here.

I love love love love this pen. It's a fantastic writer, though the violet ink it comes with is, to me, atrociously bright. Blech. That aside, I had no problems with this one in getting it started, or dryness. It always wrote smoothly and immediately, and the line was fine, if not as fine as I would have liked. It can take a bit of roughness, as it was dropped several times without damage.

Unfortunately, the cap did eventually form a crack after a nasty fall, and would never snap back on right. So I stole the nib out of this one and put it into another Preppy of mine that had a not-so-good nib. Still, for the price, this was a lovely pen. I was intending to convert this one into an eyedropper, but the cap died before I could. Alas.

To note, the nibs on these aren't flexible at all, so you'll get one solid line of the same width all the time. So this makes them good as outlining pens in sketches. Just be sure to get your own water/alcohol-proof ink if you're going to be coloring with markers as well.
Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 03 Fine Nib - Black Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 1

I didn't get this pen from JetPens, rather I got it free with a bottle of Noodler's ink from ebay. But it's exactly the same product, so I figured I may as well express my likeness for this pen here. :D

It's not a perfect pen by any means, but for the price, it's a great beginner pen! This black one in particular had some starting issues, but it must have been in the nib, because my violet Preppy worked like a dream (until the cap broke). Needless to say, I traded nibs. Otherwise, the nib wrote finely once I was able to get it to start--usually by doing some margin doodles--though not as fine as the Pilot Petit fountain pens (which I prefer for a cheapie pen).

Also, these pens are perfect for turning into eyedropper pens if you write all day every day, like me. They will hold a LOT of ink. A gargantuan amount of ink. So heavy writers will enjoy that aspect of the Preppy after a little modding.

I bought these for my planner and I am in love! The colors are vibrant and they write so smooth. The ink dries pretty quickly so they won't smear. I will definitely be ordering these again.
Uni Propus Window Soft Color Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - 5 Color Set - UNI PUS102T5CS
  These are the best highlighter..., July 10, 2014
By ego...
These are the best highlighters on the market. I have tried so many highlighters in my search for the perfect ones, and these are them. I always come back to these highlighters. I tried the Zebra Mildliners, many of the pilot line, many sharpie highlighters, even many different uni highlighters, but these are the best. The Propus window line, in general, will not bleed through the pages, but with these softer colors, the chances of bleed through are even less. The colors are great, especially the reddish-pink, the golden-yellow, and the aqua color. I got the Propus VIEW highlighters before because I loved the way they looked, but those can't hold salt to these.
