These refills are my first experience with the vaunted Hi-Tec-C. I'm concerned
that these may not be writing as well as the original Hi-Tec-C pen (I've read a
lot of glowing reviews). I know that is the case with the Slicci 0.3mm refills,
that write no where near as well as the original barrel.
Anyway, on to performance. The ink flow isn't the best. The line gives
out/sputters a lot while writing. I found myself having to slow down a little
to get a good flow. Even then, these tips are really scratchy.
When the refill does manage to work, it puts down a nice, thin line (thinner
than the 0.3 Slicci). The colors are really cool.
Bottom Line: These refills can't keep up with my writing speed. I need to try
the original HTC pen and a 0.4 refill, to see if those will be smoother and more
consistent. Until then, it's all about the .28 Signo DX.
