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
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.
