I debated my score for...
March 1, 2015
I debated my score for this product & settled on 5 stars because when all
factors are evaluated, the low price point pushes it over from 4 to 5 stars. The
pink is a nice shade & as a fellow reviewer noted, it has a light feel, which
some might say lacks the "luxe" factor - but to me its weight is a pro. I also
own the Zebra Sarasa multi that is VERY heavy, and too thick to reach for
routinely, so I reach for this Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto as my go-to multi pen. You
can choose 0.3, 0.4 or 0.5mm refills in many colors. I love the selection and
this body is a mere $2.50 USD. Also, I have used it regularly & have had no
quality complaints thus far. If I had to name a con, it would be the cost of
refills. I was hesitant to purchase another multi after buying TWO Pentel Slicci
multis & finding virtually all refills unusable - either scratchy or just dry. I
re-ordered newer refills & was still disappointed. This pen renewed my faith in
PROS: Light in the hand, color options, point width options, ergonomic design
(sort of), ease of refill & use, inexpensive price point
CONS: Lightweight Plastic (which can also be a PRO). Refills are a bit pricey
($2.20 each or $16.50 for a pack of ten).
OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: Buy this great product! But don't lend it to anyone b/c
they will want to take it for themselves.
