DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers (1)
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.

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 "scratching."

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 love these pens and how well they erase. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the ink does disappear in the very hot weather (like in a car) so be warned in those situations and you have to remember it's not permanent when you need a pen for legal documents or checks. This color is a fun dark blue!

Loving this pen. The ink flows smoothly and I can erase as needed. It's been really great for taking notes that I may want to amend, but that I was to keep clean after I've finished them.

The pen is great, the point is not fine enough for my preferences.
