Love the Hi-Tec-C pens...
Love the Hi-Tec-C pens and I love multi-pens...what's not to love? This is my
first create your own and after a few minor hiccups I can say that this is a
great pen. I have filled it with one 0.5 pencil, three 0.4 colors, and one 0.5
color (I have the Five Color, not the four color listed here). I would recommend
that if you're going to buy the empty pen and the refills, fill them all for
optimum writing performance. I had originally bought only four, and was
constantly running into writing problems. Once I bought the last color and
filled the last spot, the writing was so much better.
The 0.5 writes slightly better than the 0.4. The pen's grip could be better,
it's not very comfortable for long-term writing. There is a lot of rattling when
you shake the pen but not so much when you're writing. The pencil component is
nice but the eraser component has bad reviews and I think it's silly to have to
click over just to use an eraser so I just use a separate eraser. I don't know
if I would use this for every day use, but it's not bad. It also comes in a
variety of color and point options so that is a major plus. It also writes
really, really well.
PS: I didn't know how to put in the refills and almost broke the pen the first
time around before I Googled how to properly do it. Turns out you have to get
your fingernail under the top part and pull so it pops off and you can slide the
