Great pen. Higher visibility than I expected, but definitely less than a gel ink
or ballpoint would produce. This is a great note-taking pen with no smearing
upon erasure that provides a much better set of notes than a pencil ever could.
I use this pen for about 5-7 hours at a time with only the occasional ink
thinning and have never had a problem described by the other user about
Depending on your writing style, this size (0.5mm) or type of ink
(water-colorish) might make this pen difficult for you. The scratching requires
you to let up on the amount of pressure you put on the pen given the ink is not
as a thick as a regular gel pen. Maybe grab a 0.7mm if you have this problem.
Also, if you have a slanted handwriting style like I do (being left handed), the
ink doesn't flow as well creating a much lighter line than if you held the pen
perpendicular to the paper. I've adjusted my own writing style to work with this
pen since I haven't found a better pen for note-taking.

I have no idea what other reviewers are talking about. I use this pen 24/7 in
college and I love it! Ended up buying loads of refills also.

I love this pen! Writes very well, has little to no smear, and erases
beautifully. Comes in handy when I need to handwrite essays for some classes. I
use it all the time. The placement of the clip as the trigger for retracting the
pen tip is perfect and practical.

This pen comes in a dark navy blue color. The grip is just a thin layer of
silicon, not to be confused as a soft grip. The clip which operated the push
mechanism in the pen does fell a little unstable; the clip jiggles as if it may
come off. The ink is just a little light for a blue black, but it does erase
well. One of the only negative things that I noticed about this pen, is that
when I had to erase a large area when I was writing chinese characters on flash
cards; the frixion rubber started to wear down on the back, but just a little.
This worried me that the rubber might not hold out for a very long time. But
overall this is one of the best erasable pens on the market.

This pens ink color is good and the erasability is fine. However the pen did not
write smoothly. It is VERY sharp and makes an indent on the paper so even if you
erase you can see what you had written. Also when writing with this pen I sound
like Michel J Fox. The clip at the top is the mechanism that retracts the ink
tip and when it is in use it rattles loudly. If I actually liked this pen I
suppose I would make do by using a hair tie to hold the clip in place. I would
not recommend this pen to anyone.
