I am disappointed to give this product a 4 star review. It was an absolutely perfect highlighter for me before tonight. I will first say that with this yellow color (I have all colors) it is the lightest and hardest to notice. For me that is great for others maybe not. I love the above and below idea and I think it works great. If the letters you are highlighting are really large than it might not stretch far enough but for most books I have read since I started using these highlighters it is perfect.

Again I will preface this negative statement with I love these highlighters. I have been using them for about 2 months. Tonight however with a fairly new yellow pen I had the unfortunate experience of the small tip breaking off. I do have a heavier hand but never before other than cheap lead in mechanical pencils have I broken a tip. This might have been a defective product or it may be a regular thing. I will update this rating in one month. But for now be aware this may be an issue for you too. It is worth taking the chance though, these highlighters are awesome and unique.

I love the bright colors of these highlighters! I can't find the same quality in Bic or any of the other highlighters I use. The only downside is that in order to have the solid highlight to cover the whole text, you must tilt your hand back in order for the solid tip to highlight the whole text.

I really like this simple design. The tip shape is perfect and the body is not unattractive. The ink is very light and inconsistent; It cannot highlight an entire line of text consistently fading out quickly. On top of that, the ink ran out after very little use.

If the ink issues are solved, I'd buy this item again.

The Kokuyo highlighters are the best. I use them for academic reading, and it's really nice to be able to highlight footnote text as cleanly as one can highlight main text. I don't ever use the double-line, but I can imagine other folks really digging that part of it. Great color, no bleed. They don't last the longest, but that's not a deal breaker for me.

And I've never had any of their pieces break off, just to weigh in on that point.

FYI: this applies to all beetle tips.
If you are not careful, you can get he skinny tip of the highlighter caught on the cap and gets it easily ripped off. i like the design but for the price, a dual tip is more practical. Also the clip part of the cap pops off sometimes.
