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 really want to like...
I really want to like this line of pens; but can't say I do. To me, as other reviewers said, line is too scratchy and not consistent. No typical gel pen glide to it either. Ordered the upgrade from Jet Pens (retractable) and we'll see if that's better.

It feels nice to write...
It feels nice to write with, but the line it puts down is rather watery and faded; if you draw a line really quickly, it will also skip a bit (noticeable when I try to underline or circle things). The case also looks rather lame. I think the pen bodies for the 0.4mm version are much better, so even if you want to use a 0.7mm tip, I'd switch the cartridges (they fit).

I bought this pen in...
I bought this pen in Taiwan because apparently the phenomenon hasn't dried out there yet either! The ink isn't bold enough for me and again the 0.7mm is too thick for me. A design flaw is that the eraser is on the top of the pen and not on the cap so when you cap the pen, you have to remove it in order to erase.
