A little background about...
January 11, 2012
A little background about my note-taking preference first: I love writing with
pens except when taking notes or outlining for a class I use pencils due to the
fact that I am always erasing. However because of pencil transfer, like when you
write on the other side of the written page, I only use the front side of pages.
NEVER THE BACK PAGE. And this never really bothered me, but recently I've been
noticing how much more paper I've been wasting compared to my peers. So in comes
the Pilot Frixion pen. I was always iffy about eraseable pens, since they didn't
seem to give clean pencil-like erasing. But the heat erasing mechanism of the
Pilot Frixion pens intrigued me.
When I first got this and the black pen, I was in LOVE. Yes the black looked a
bit washed out, but the writing and erasing was amazing. SO CLEAN. And so for
the past week I've been writing avidly with my new pens. However upon looking
back at my notes I've noticed parts of my notes missing, like a part of a word
here and there. And so I realized, when erasing one side of the page, the heat
goes through the paper and partially erases what is on the other side. I was
devastated. And not to mention soooo frustrated. And while rewriting parts of my
notes and getting very annoyed I decided to take a break and write this review.
So yes beside the fact that the heat mechanism does have a downside or two...
the pen itself is good and erasing is amazing.
