Have to admit that it's true that the f02 has better flow BUT for drawing comic or manga it's GREAT because this is meant for the detailed and parts of your drawing that you want to appear light or faded. The purpose of the slow flow in this pen is so we can draw slow in small detailed areas of your drawing. If you wanted faded or light streak lines that do the ink fades appearance then do faster strokes. This pen is great cause you have total control do to the pressure and speed of the streaks. Recommended!

The Copic drawing pen...
May 30, 2009
The Copic drawing pen was one of my first Japanese imports. When I recieved this item, I expected a great quality pen. (Considering it's Copic) But to my surprise it was only mediocre at best. Perhaps it was just my pen, but, it always skips when I'm inking a drawing, and that's not exactly a great thig=ng. Also, the ink seems very lightly washed out. Like a few drops of water were added to it. I don't really use it that much, but... it's not exactly the greatest, the ink from a uni-ball disposable pen is far more consistent. Once again though. It could just be my pen. Or it could be all of them that are like this. I would use caution when buying this product. The only reason I would consider using this pen for drawing, is if you use tick-lines ALOT. I mean alot, alot. Good points, is that it's a thin line (if you can get it to write) and it's very light. And if you like a washed out kind of looking ink, this pen would be good for you.

Good pen for every day.

I have several of these pens. I use them mostly for mathematics and drawing -- some general note taking too. Sometimes I just don't want to take my Pelikan, and these pens fill the bill. They are sturdy, and I don't worry about throwing one into the bottom of a book bag. They don't cost much, so I don't mind leaving a couple in the office where they will inevitably be "borrowed" by one of my coworkers. :)

On good, smooth paper they perform very well. They produce a good, dark line -- almost as good as a technical drafting pen. Constant width and good flow. The ink drys fast, and is very resistant to smudging and smearing. While not 100% waterproof, the ink is very water resistant. The pens can be a little scratchy especially when new. Only down side is that about 1 out of 10 seems to be a -- super scratchy misaligned nib, poor flow, or dried up.

I don't know if this is the Producters fault or mine or my paper's, but the nib gets clogged by Paper Fibers being scratched off from drawing all the time. I then have to get these out and this costs time and nerves. Beside that, I LOVE the feeling of drawing. It floats neat. If it floats...
Anyway - I'm not used to Fountain Pens. I gonna think about trying another brand.

Could never get it to work for more than a second at a time. Maybe I got a dud or they're not for left-handers?

For those who still have ink flow issues, this is a HUGE TIP that will make u fall in love with this pen. the pen has an ink holding sponge inside. Uncap the end and pull it out without damaging it with a tweaser and dip it in a ink bottle and squeeze it carefully to soak up the ink, then drop it back in the pen and cap the end again. The flw will go amazingly smooth. Repeat when the issue occurs again.

I really wanted to like this.

But it seems that no matter the paper I use it gets clogged by paper fiber or tears up the sheet because of being such a small tip. This is a problem that I basically never have with actual dip pens. Oh well :(

It's a cheap pen, and you get what you pay for.
The ink color is nice, and so is the flow when you can actually get it working. For me, it worked quite well for the first few hours I used it, and then came the skipping, the clogging, the lack of any flow whatsoever. A real shame that after a day it's already unusable no matter what I try.
Still, I would recommend it as a starter pen if you've never used fountain pens before. You can try out the feel of the tool and see if it's for you before spending more money on a better pen, like one by LAMY.
