What are Hi-Tec C pens?

Pilot Hi-Tec C pens are special pens that are currently very popular in Japan. They are highly sought after in the US, but are very difficult to find in stores.

The fine tipped point of Pilot Hi-Tec C pens allow you to write with incredible precision. Moreover the ink is chemically formulated so that it will not bleed after it dries.

Hi-Tec C fans immediately recognize the brilliant design of these pens. They are available in .25mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm and 0.5mm sizes and in a variety of colors.

If you are looking for the equivalent(and probably even better version) of the High tech C try the Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.28mm or the zebra sarasa 0.3 mm. Both are absolutely fantastic pens in all respects, and are even better because they're cheaper than the high tech c. Both also come with a grip and do not have a fragile needle point like the high tech c.

By eugenebl - See all my reviews
A good pen, ink can actually be the same or thinner than the 0.18 uni-ball. It is better for long, straight lines (eg. cross-hatching) than for short, sketchy ones that the uni-ball is good at. Its ink is much thinner than the Slicci, which is also 0.25. Sometimes the ink seems to stop flowing and things get a bit scratchy. Note: this pen is not waterproof, and will bleed strange purplish tones if exposed to water. The 0.18 uni-ball is waterproof.

Everything has its use, though. I use this pen to write small notes, and for cross-hatching in comics. It's good at both of those.

By sheepdogg325 - See all my reviews
At first I thought that I really liked this pen (I bought this pen along with the uni-ball signo bit .28), but not long after I started using it the ink stopped flowing consistently and then pretty much refused to write more than one word without choking up. I bought this pen over a year ago and test it periodically to see if it has decided to work... but it still won't. My uni-ball, however, is still my primary note-taking pen and I have never had a problem with it. I suppose that it is possible that I simply recieved a defective pen, but I have ordered dozens of products from Jetpens and never had a similar problem

In summary; disappointing pen!

Hands down my favorite pen. I bought every gel pen on Jetpens under .4 mm, and in one clean swoop decided that this is by far the best. The tip size is very small, however if you have a light hand the ink will continue to flow well. At first, expect to have a hard time with this pen, but after a little writing it will be a very enjoyable experience.

I was really hoping to LOVE LOVE LOVE this pen because it was .25 mm and I'm a huge fan of super fine pens. BUT I was kind of disappointed because I found the barrel to be really uncomfortable to write with because it was so small.

Pros:
Super Fine Tip
Smooth Lines
Good, Well Known Brand
Sure to Impress Others

Cons:
Uncomfortable, No Grip
Kind of expensive for something that doesn't try to be aesthetically pleasing... Then again I kind of like the simple design.

I'm going to try using other pens of similar fineness but different brands so I'll probably post an update later...

Overall it's a very nice pen to have and use, I can't get enough of the fine point. I will most likely buy this pen again just because I feel happy just knowing I have it in my JetPen stash... (I'm kind of obsessed)
