Right after unpacking the highlighters, I had a bit of a scare!
Three of the pens had white nibs and the rest had extra faded ink! And no matter how much I shake them and try to write with them they did not apply any color. At first I thought they were dried out but the nib was wet with ink only it was transparent. Then I remembered the fact that frixion ink fades with heat and can be restored when subjected to extreme low heat (As per the description above).
So, I left the pens in the freezer, took them out after about 10 minutes, left them to thaw then tried them again and they worked perfectly fine!
So, definitely be wary of that if you place your order during the summer ;)
After solving the problem, the highlighters are very delightful change from the usual strong colors and they erase very well. The colors are still too faded for my liking but definitely usable. Overall, a nice product.

I always had problems skimming my text books after highlighting and with how light the colors are it's easy, even without erasing anything.
The colors are by no means dim though. They are colorful and attention getting but not bright and blinding. I love these highlighters and won't buy any hang else. :)

These are by far the best highlighters I've ever owned. I use highlighters for a lot of planning and outlining, so I like to have a good selection of colors, and one of the biggest problems I have with most, is that once you get past yellow, the other colors can get really dark and hard to read through. These soft colors are a godsend, for real -- they're so subtle and so light, but it's still enough color to make it pop on the page.

And the erasers actually work! I was a little skeptical about them at first, and they weren't at all a major selling point for me, but of course, I had to try them when they got here. And they erase the highlighter ink really easily! The only thing is that you have to wait for the ink to completely dry, or else the eraser might smudge it up a little.

I had an initial moment of worry when I first used one of the highlighters, because the point felt dry and stiff, but that was just because it was brand new, of course -- they work like a dream now. Really pleased with this purchase.

These take quite a while to dry, and can't be erased until they're dry, so that can interfere with work flow sometimes. They're not bad, though. I don't regret getting several other colors in addition to this set.

I absolutely love these highlighters! I'd only known about the regular frixion ones but was so happy to discover these for my cross stitching. They erase fantastically and they don't completely cover my symbols on the chart!

Well, they're just too light for me. Almost like they're dried out (?). I use them but not what I expected.

I like these because they don't visually scream at my eyes. Like the rest of the Frixion highlighters, they are drier than traditional ones.

These are just okay. I'd just use the markers instead of buying these if I had to do it again

Absolutely amazing! I don't think I'm ever gonna suffice with standard highlighters anymore. They erase so cleanly you can barely tell any ink was even put on the paper. And without the mess! I also love the softer colors because they're not so glaring on the paper.

I like to use highlighters in my fiction writing as a sort of editing/revision color coding system. Rather than wrack my brains trying to figure out a better description or dialogue, I'll just put down whatever cheesy words I can't get past and highlight it a certain color as a reminder to do something about later; whether it's find better wording, decide if it even needs to be there, or whatever the case may be.

Not only do these provide more options, but they better serve the subtly in the reminders I use them for when I'm re-reading manuscripts. Relatively easier to overlook during an over-read and not as distracting. I think they'll also allow for a vibrant highlight on more ink color options than just black, too. Plus the ink output isn't overdone, giving a nice clean stroke without any squeaking or initial smearing.

All in all, I'm so glad I stumbled on these. Kudos to Pilot for FriXion's remarkable innovation!

The highlighters worked well when they arrived. The colors are nice and the ink does get erased. However, after less than a month of use for school, all of them have pretty much run out of ink. I expected them to last a lot longer, but they seem pretty disposable.
