I like the Pentel Slicci line of pens and that goes for the.08 metallic colors.
The pen size is a little smaller than I typically like but it feels right for
this pen. The 8 color set is one of the few sets of pens on Jetpens.com that you
get a break in price for buying as opposed to buying them individual. It is
cheaper for the 8 pack so if you are going to get a few of the colors it is
worth it to get all 8. I was very happy with all of the colors but the blue
happened to surprise me and stand out over the rest. I usually am not a fan of
blue ink but in this metallic set I love it. The silver also was quite
surprising. All of the colors do have a strong metallic look to them and lay a
very even line. And I have never experienced any skipping with the Slicci line
of pens in general. This set included.

I was just using one of the lovely metallic pens in this set last week and
thought to myself, gel pens sure have come a long way! I remember when the ink
would never come out, and you would have to shake and bang the pen to get just a
couple of word's worth of ink out onto the page. Flash forward ten years to now,
when we have the lovely slicci metallic gels, which flow wonderfully and
continuously onto the page in a brillant glittering color. My only qualm, and
one I hope to see fixed in the next ten years, is the problem of having to let
the ink dry. If my hand slips and runs over the page, my writing smudges and my
hand shines with the wet ink. I have to wait to let the page dry before I can
turn it over, or there will be all over the opposite page.
