PLEEEEEEASE restock Jetpens!
Seriously, this is the best highlighter by far for me. In fact, with these
around, I think using a different kind of highlighter would be settling for
second-best :-) Here's what sets these apart from other highlighters, even other
1) the erasing function actually does what it says. Not only does it not leave a
trace (even on my usual writing paper, cream-colored index cards), it allows for
repeated erasing and re-writing (which lets you change colors - great for color
coding stuff that is changeable, eg prioritizing a to-do list; it's not just for
mistakes). Other erasables work like the classic fountain pen ink eraser: you
can only erase once.
2) good build: the materials don't feel cheap and brittle, they're sturdy,
including the clip. Best of all, the eraser is really more of a rubber stopper,
which doesn't wear as you erase like with many other erasable pens: so you can
be sure it won't wear down to nothing ages before the ink runs out in the
3) the shape: it's like a pen, rather than the classic short and flat
highlighter. Sure Jetpens only has the pen type (only the best for Jetpens
customers i guess), but those other ones are overall more common. The pen style
makes it more comfortable to hold, and easier to fit in a pencil case: these are
about the same bulk as a 'good' pen (eg fountain pen) so they are perfect if you
like a roll/wrap-style pencil case or the kind that turns into a pen pot, but
still have to carry highlighters.
4) The ink: the colors are distinct (with other pens, sometimes the green and
yellow look a bit similar, same with pink/orange & blue/purple - not so here),
and they are vivid enough to highlight, but not excessively loud to the point of
making what's written underneath hard to discern, even with the darkest colors
(eg purple). Best of all, they work fine with inkjet and fountain pen ink, no
smudges at all - another rarity.
I hope I've sung the praises of these things enough that Jetpens will see their
way to restocking these asap. I really wanted a second set to keep in my
ready-to-go pencil case so i don't have to keep transferring them from my
desktop holder and risk forgetting them :-/

I've tried the orange, green and blue. They all erase surprisingly well The
orange and green work well for me, but the blue is too dark. However, with all
these highlighters I've noticed the following: If I highlight over pencil and
then erase, the highlighter disappears, but I can't erase the pencil marks that

I always like to color-code things in my planner - but sometimes I'm only half
paying attention because I'm in a hurry. I love these highlighters because I can
erase them if I accidentally use the wrong color. My only complaint is that it
is a little harder to re-highlight something that has been previously erased
with the FriXion highlighter.

This items works great!...
, November 17, 2013
This items works great! I still have the highlighter that I bought in Japan. I
am very happy I found this site. It highlights and erase. You just have to wait
for the area to dry to properly erase it. Just be careful of it being expose to
heat/sun for a long time. It will disappear but nonetheless, I love this item!
