A breakthrough in writing technology has made available the erasable pen you have always been waiting for. These new pens from Pilot erase by FRICTION, they are like a magic pen for adults! The pens have a special rubber end to rub the thermo sensitive ink away with, thus no eraser by-products are produced, yet the ink disappears magnificently (and the rubber never wears out!) The pen writes smoothly, in vibrant colors, and erases without a trace! Best of all, they are made of 76% recycled plastic.
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 using gel ink...
I've been using gel ink pens for many years because they write so much better than ballpoints. So, when my son's teacher required them to use erasable pens last year as a 2nd grader, I thought he would like these erasable pens. They write so much better than the Paper Mate Erasable Pens. Only thing I don't like about them is that they run out so fast. But, I just buy a lot of the very inexpensive refills, so it's not as much of a problem. Be careful when you order the 3-pack. The picture and description on the website show it is supposed to come with 2 black pens and 1 red. Instead, I received 1 black, 1 blue, and 1 red. Unfortunately, my son can't use blue pens at school, so they would be a waste. I've notified JetPens to request replacements.

I would give perfect...
I would give perfect score but I have an issue with these pens. Yes they write pretty well when new, (didn't know you could buy refills if I read correctly), and using frixion to erase comparing to older erasable ink pens that the eraser didn't last nowhere close as the pen did. But, this is my complaint. At the time, for some reason, I didn't like the eraser on the cap and I never really used it bc it wasn't great and I'd end up using them when I pencil eraser was no more, even after biting down on it squishing a little more out of it!lol
Ok, all this just to ask/say, Why put eraser on the cap??? Doesn't everybody take top off and place on back of pen? Habit and you don't lose that way! So an ok writing pen, GREAT concept for friction bc you don't run out of the eraser!!!! But if the eraser was on top cover so attaching on the other end and having eraser at ready would give this pen more!!!
