I didn't expect too much after using the 0.7mm version of this I picked up from the store, but I was pleasantly surprised. Although the ink does, admittedly, look a little faded and lacking in depth compared to other gel ink pens, the tip is fine and points down a very nice line regardless. It's small, lightweight and comfortable to hold, such that I do not find myself getting sore, tired hands after writing with it for long periods of time. All in all, a solid purchase definitely worth the $3 I paid for it.

These are perfect. They write pretty dark(not as dark as a normal gel ink pen, but still very clear and dark). I love that they write pretty thinly, but not too thin. Erasing is absolutely AMAZING; they erase COMPLETELY and leave NO residue.

I really like these pens. They work great, are neater and easier to see than a pencil, and erase almost flawlessly. To answer a previous question, I have never had the eraser part wear down - but a regular erase will work if you need it to.

I love everything in the frixion collection! I basically own one of everything and buy the refills. but I was super pissed at this pen.
mind you, I am super careful with my pens. I treat them better than I treat my computer.

after the 5th refill the plastic of the neck of the pen where you twist to open cracked. and it cracked very randomly because i wasn't opening the pen at all.

I was just writing in my notebook and all of a sudden the tip falls in..... :'(
debating if i want to buy another one or buy the metal body version of this pen....

A nice looking black pen, but the ink on this pen is a light grey. Also, the ink is doesn't always come out in a flowing stream; almost as if it dried up inside the needle point of the pen. But I do like that the needle point tip of the pen makes the writing so thin. Also, I really appreciate the thin cone of frixion rubber on the back of the pen, which allows me to erase small mistakes; and the frixion rubber seems stronger than what is on the frixion nock retractable pens. But overall I like the frixion nock retractable pens better than this.

I love how the fine point of the pen, which can practically be used for any classes. Especially those who love pencils, this is the right product for you. The downside of this product is that you can't refill it after the ink is all used up and that you have to keep buying the pen over and over again.

I hate erasable ink!...

I hate erasable ink!

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, my next confession is: I LOVE THIS PEN!

I have tried the Pilot Frixion line before (in 0.7mm), and absolutely despised the gray-ish "black" pen. I needed a couple of dollars more to bump my ink refill order up to the $25 threshold to get the free shipping, so I reluctantly selected this pen. I am so glad I did!

The ink - while still not the blackest - is adequate. The ink lays a very nice fine line. I still find that the eraser is in a curious place. Seeing as how I post my cap when I write, I find it bothersome to have to remove the posted cap in order to erase anything. Despite this placement blunder, otherwise, I love the design of the pen. Despite not opting for the Business-ready design, I find the clean black body with nicely utilized typography to be quite appealing.

While I won't be reaching for this pen as often as I do my Cavaliers, I will definitely be giving this pen a try here and there.

For those reluctant to give erasable pens a try, I encourage you to give this one a try. For those of you that love erasable pens- Why haven't you already tried this one?!
