5 stars for color selection,...
5 stars for color selection, smooth skip-free writing, fast drying gel ink.
Take away one star for:
-----Their small size-they seem to be art/craft pens, not for note-taking, as the pen is uncomfortable to hold for long writing sessions.
-----Mislabeled "blue black" as "midnight blue," which is no big deal except I wanted to buy all the colors not inuded in this 15 pack, but ended up with TWO blue black pens. The pen in this 15 pack is labeled blue black on the actual pen. Jetpens also sells that same pen seperately as Midnight Blue, even though the label does say "blue black"...you can see it in the picture on Jetpens for the Midnight Blue pen. There is NO Slicci pen called "Midnight Blue" it is actually blue black. And it's a lovely color! I have two of them but I don't mind!
-----Slicci's 0.25mm is not even close to Hi-Tec-C's 0.25mm. In fact, Slicci's 0.25mm point falls somewhere between Hi-Tec-C's 0.3mm and 0.4mm. Judging by this comparison, I think Slicci's 0.25mm is probably a 0.35mm in reality. But the colors are also more vibrant and more pigmented than Hi-tec-C's ink colors, so maybe that's why it looks like a heavier line.
-----Expensive pens, same price as Hi-Tec-C pens but Sliccis are smaller. Does a smaller pen hold less ink? I don't know, but the logical assumption is probably "yes" because its smaller! And I love Jetpens but Sliccis cost more here than at most other stores....although Jetpens does have 20 different colors of Sliccis available individually AND in 5, 10, or 15 packs, while those other stores only have 10 colors and only in a 10 pack, never sold individually. Jetpens wins that one even though they charge a little more.
And that is why I gave 4 stars. I do recommend these Sliccis pens if you like to write small in many colors of ink...or if you have already collected ALL the Hi-Tec-C colors plus ALL of the Uniball Signo DX 0.28 and 0.38 colors....you might as well get these too, because Slicci's colors are very exciting and different. They will wake up your creative & imaginative abilities.

These are some great pens, they write/flow very smooth and fine...love the colors!
I Like them just a bit more than the Hi-Tec-C because the ink dosn't skip.
They are a smaller, thinner pen to hold. Bravo! Highly reccommended!

The pens are nice, the ink is amazing. I bought them because I write frequently in Japanese, and my Japanese instructors always comment on two-compound kanji, how they look like separate characters. However, I do not like how it looks on paper.
I suggest moving up to either .3 or .4. Both are still very small and great for writing in both Japanese and traditional Chinese.

I've been using this set for years. The pens last a very long time. The ink flow was sharp and consistent.
