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.

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.

I had really high hopes for these. A lot of reviews were either really encouraging or really nasty. I decided I'd try them out for myself. They are super thin, but they don't write well. They scratch way too much and the ink color just isn't there. Try the 0.4mm one, it writes like a dream.

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.

Okay. I'll admit it. The first time I came across a Tec-C, I had totally stolen it from a coworker. She let me borrow it and I fell in love and I just kept it. I don't do that normally. But it was worth the risk and I regret nothing, because these pens are SO GOOD. If you write from a low angle, you're gonna get scratching. Don't write from a low angle. Tilt the butt of your pen up a bit more. Trust me. These pens glide like the wind. I love them. I love them so much.

Fine lines with very little hand pressure. For underlining and notes in the margins of a bible nothing can compare to the Pilot Hi-Tec C .25. Lets you write smaller and legible in tight places. The light bleed through the page from the ink is not a problem. This pen comes in more than enough colors to keep your thoughts organized. The Hi-Tec C .25 has replaced my Uni-ball .38, for sermons and bible notes. For everyday use Uni-ball is cheaper & writes very nice.

Ink flow is not very consistent while trying to write or draw fast, but seems fine when I try to use it more slowly. Can get very scratchy easily. When it works right though the lines are very thin and sharp. Ink is not waterproof. Unless 0.25mm is absolutely essential for you, I recommend the slightly bigger sizes that tend to have better ink flows like 0.38mm.
