10 pen set includes colors: black, red, blue, blue black, green, light green, orange, pink, light blue, and violet.

The long awaited retractable version of the popular Pilot FriXion line is here! Pen features the same beloved thermo-sensitive ink that can be erased by friction, but now comes in a sleek, retractable body. Just push the clip to extend and retract the tip. A subtle yellow color appears along the barrel side to show when the pen is extended. The special rubber tip at the end allows you to erase conveniently without having to cap or uncap your pen. The pen writes smoothly and erases without a trace! Refills available for select ink colors and point sizes only.

Interestingly enough, the ink in these pens will actually reappear when the temperature reaches below - 10 C (under 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is sufficiently cold enough to make the ink start to reappear. It is like a magic pen for adults!

Because the ink in this pen is thermo sensitive, we do not advise for it to be left in hot cars, used for mailing, or subjected to a condition that exposes it to a lot of friction.

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 freezer.

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.

I really wish that this company would make multi-pens for these so we could just swap out ink and only have to toe around one pen. other than that, i absolutely LOVE these!!!

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.
