DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
The FriXion Ball 3 multi pen combines three FriXion gel inks in one pen body. It features Pilot's beloved thermosensitive ink that can be erased by rubbing. The rubber “eraser” tip at the top conveniently allows you to erase without retracting the pen tip, and the ink erases cleanly. A rubber grip ensures writing comfort, and a clip secures the pen to your pocket or notebook.

In this Metal series, the body colors are metallic, some with color gradients (fading from dark to light), and a silver metal tip and clip complete the sharp look.

Interestingly, erased ink reappears when the temperature dips below – 10 C (below 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is cold enough to make this happen. The pen is like a magic pen for adults!

Due to the thermosensitive nature of the ink, we advise against using it for mailings, or leaving the written materials in hot cars or in environments that expose them to a lot of friction.

The pen includes black, blue, and red FriXion inks. Refills are available.

This is the pen with a Gradation Black body. (Some photos feature the Gradation Blue body.)

Q: My Pilot FriXion pen is not writing well. It seems to be dried out or writing with clear ink. What should I do?
The FriXion ink formula is thermo-sensitive, which causes it to become invisible when heat from friction is applied. If the pen has been exposed to warm temperatures or direct sunlight, this may have caused the ink inside the pen to be "erased." Please try to store the pens in your freezer overnight, then remove them for an hour or two prior to writing to allow them to come back to room temperature. This can usually reactivate the coloring in the ink and allow the pens to write as normal.

I was previously using the Pilot FriXion Multi plastic-bodied pen as my "go-to" for note taking given its ability to write over printed powerpoint slides and erase cleanly when I found better coherence to my thoughts.

My only complaint about the plastic-bodied multi-pen was the lightness of both the black ink and the scratchiness of the red. With this upgraded version, the point of the pen is more heavily weighted by the metal lower body meaning both the black and red are much fuller and visible then before and don't require me to write perpendicular to the page just to get those inks to work appropriately.

Overall I love this pen, but like anything I wish it was cheaper.

Just a quick update, this pen accepts the 0.38 refills as well. I've since switched over which makes fitting notations in cramped review texts much easier.
