I bought this to do try out basic watercolor. I'm a total novice at art.

It works quite well! Holds a decent amount of water. My girlfriend, who's a professional watercolor illustrator, had never seen those before, and liked it. She didn't fall in love with it, so maybe it's better for beginners/people who haven't been using standard brushes for decades.

I'm happy with it though - it does its job, the construction is nice, it's easy to carry around in a bag.

They hold plenty of water and the size is compact for travel, but the brush is way too soft and flimsy to be useful for me. The springiness I want just isn't there. Depending on your style, these might be great for you, but they did not meet my needs. I still kept them as backup, since they're relatively inexpensive and I enjoy having tools around that are different than what I'm used to. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't repurchase, though.

I bought this and the Kuretake small water brush to see which one had the finer line quality, and I think they're fairly equal. However, I would buy this one again because I can get a better variety of line thickness, and it's easier to refill.

My FAVORITE waterbrush!...

My FAVORITE waterbrush! It has excellent spring and the odd shaped barrel both holds more water, and makes it easy to have a secure grip that doesn't accidentally squeeze the vessel(?) and release more water.

I personally have one for watercolor paintings, and the rest I use with Diamine ink (also purchased from JetPens) and I made DIY ink brushes!

This is just about the coolest thing since sliced bread, no joke. You never have to worry about dirty water and it uses so little as opposed to traditional brushes. I wouldn't say this should be your only watercolor brush, but this is perfect not just for traveling but painting at home as well. Works best I think with watercolor pans.

Lovely to draw with.

I prefer filling these with Diamine Ink over buying brush pens with cartridges because cartridges feel sort of wasteful to me compared to buying a bottle of ink. They can also be filled with Sumi ink, but that clogs much faster.

The bristles are very durable and I've not wrecked any of them yet.

This is a great entry-level waterbrush pen. I'm using it for brush lettering and filling it with fountain pen ink rather than water, and it works great for this purpose. The flow is fantastic--not to wet, not too dry. The tip is indeed fine when you want it to be, but it can take some abuse and become very broad as well, then bounce right back to fine. The only slightly annoying thing is that the shape of the pen causes ink drops to collect at the top and sides of the pen rather than sliding down to the tip. But it's not a big deal unless you're obsessed with using every last drop of ink, and it certainly wouldn't matter if you're actually using it as a waterbrush pen.

the best travel brush there is. if it is used very very frequently, you do need to replace after maybe a year and half. i love the brush tip. and "Fine" is not a joke! tiniest tip around.

I really like this brush, but a few things disappointed me
- very convenient
- easy to use
- not springy (hard to control brush lettering)
- would drip if i squished it from other places than only the brush ruining some of my pieces
I would've really liked it if it was more springy
