It is a very beautiful and good pen, except that it won't last long. I only wrote scattered notes for 5 pages on an A4 writing pad, and I already can see the whole amount of ink from the transparent part...I guess the ink will end for another 5 pages...It is kind of ridiculous to buy a pen this price for wiring ten pages :(

If you have tried the...
If you have tried the original Pilot Frixion Gel Ink pens, then you already know how well this pen works. With erasable ink, colored sketches, notes, corrections, or doodles are endlessly fun and easy! Plus, with this new, slim body, these pens can be taken anywhere without taking up too much space. The retractable mechanism really expedites the process of changing colors, say when I am taking class notes, and gives easier access. With the slim tip, writing between the lines or along margins is no unbearable obstacle anymore!
To make sure that when erasing there are no random smudges and that the ink "disappears" effectively, be sure to check the rubber eraser for stray ink marks or debris.
Like the original pens, I still wish the ink were slightly darker, but its understandable that it isn't given that it is supposed to be erasable.
Here's a cool tip: There is a small hole in the clear lever that when you push down retracts the tip. Use that hole by stringing it with string and hang it up or tie them to a notebook so that you always have a pen readily accessible.
