I've been waiting for retractable FriXions ever since the 0.7mm FriXion gel pens
came out! I love these, the colors are beautiful, and I love that they retract
with the clip, so that they don't keep retracting while you erase!

These pens are ULTRA smooth. The pen looks nice and feels good in the hand. They
erase well, especially on good quality paper (magazine paper warps slightly).
The colors are ok, but a bit washed out. I can barely tell the difference
between orange and red, and the black/blue-black/blue pens are VERY subtle
variations. I'm using these pens to write in test-prep books and they work
great, but I can only really assign 6/10 colors to different resources, because
there's no way I'd be able to tell the difference between blue and blue-black or
red and orange notes side by side written in a book. So... I'm addicted enough
that I don't want to wait for a return/reorder, but if I were to do it again,
I'd only order the colors I need and save myself $13.
Oh, and the ink WILL disappear in very hot conditions, but my test sheet (placed
under a hair dryer) came back to near-normal when placed in the freezer. Totally
legible, though a little lighter. That's good enough for me. For archival
purposes, these pens are not a great idea, but this is perfect for my book
annotations, day planner, etc. FYI: friction-erased bits don't come back in the

Pens dry up quickly and do not write well. Have 9 of 10 bad pens. When I
contacted JP they said to put them in the refrigerator over night, so they must
be familiar with the problem but it did not help. The .07 worked fine.

I like these. For one, they are just a good looking pen, with an almost
brushed-metal body and corresponding grip. The retractable mechanism is smooth
and works well, and I love that it's on the clip, not the end of the pen. They
write incredibly smoothly, and they also erase cleanly. For comparison, they
erase better than the Frixion crayon-like .7 ones. The one downside to these is
that the ink has an almost faded look to it, so don't expect bright bold colors
like you might see from a regular gel pen. Depending on your style, the faded
look may or may not be a bad thing. I personally like it, because it makes even
the more 'bold' colors more acceptable at work. Very pleased with these.
