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
-----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.
