I've tried to use the Hi-Tec-C gel pens. They start out really nice, smooth, and inky. As I continue to write with them, however, the lines become more faint and eventually I cannot use them at all - I am left with a nearly filled ink cartridge. ): I've tried my best to revive my pens, and I have not yet been successful. Maybe it is because I write with more pressure? Or it is because my pens come from Taiwan? o_O I don't know. But, my Sliccis never do this to me - so now I use Sliccis exclusively. So 5 in the beginning (because it writes so well and smooth), a 1 in the end (because it is useless and makes me feel sadpanda).

Great pen, writes well, desperately needs a better grip for extended writing.

One of the better pens I have used, but I frequently run into problems with the ink drying up and requiring a fews seconds of scribbling before ink starts running again.

The tip of the pen is definitely intimidating, but it produces a minor scratching feeling whenever used to write, and that may turn some people off. A little annoyance for me, but no real big deal.

Don't expect to write with this pen for too long, as the barrel is very thin, and the design just starts to hurt your writing hand after a short while.

Too scratchy when writing....

Too scratchy when writing. Plus, at times, the .5mm one gives out way too much ink....

i am wondering why everyone was in love with this pen and after haivng tested a few hi tec c's with varying tip sizes, i've concluded that people have been following the herd as opposed to buying this pen for it's quality/writing ability.

i wish i could send these back =/ i bought 4 of them.

Okay, so I just got this pen from a friend who went to Japan and brought back some pens.
First of all, I would like to say, that this is a bit scratchy.
It writes EXTREMELY well though.
It flows well, it has good consistent ink, and it does not smear.

The irks in this pen, at least for me, lie in the barrel and the point.
The point feels delicate, so it just doesn't feel natural sometimes.
The barrel feels somewhat cheap, and I don't really like the grip. It is just raised plastic, so if your hands ever get sweaty, then it gets uncomfortable.

Still, it is very recommended!

But i must confess ^ that they do get clogged up with dried ink bits and paper, that happens when you buy the ones in taiwan. My aunt bought me a set of Hi-tec-Cs and pentel hybrid technicas, both clogged up, and found out the ink was old. lol believe it or not, sometimes pens get old. So what i do is get a cotton ball of rubbing alcohol, poke it with my pentip for about 30 seconds, and its good as new. Flows great after!

Despite giving it only 3 stars, I did enjoy this pen. It writes in a smooth, fine line, allowing me to fit 6 lines of text in a single standard rule notebook space. On 'semi gloss' workbook paper, I did have to blot in order to avoid smudging while the ink dried. Out of ten different pens I ordered to test, this one is in the short list of keepers. At the time of this review I have yet to test the Hi-Tec-C .25mm, but given the performance of this pen I have have hopes for that one. This is the first of 6 pens tested and reviewed so far that doesn't have a rubber grip. I mention this because I really hold onto my pens. I try to consciously relax my grip, but my hand just naturally clamps down on a pen. That being said, I really felt the grooves cut into the barrel to be the grip. After a couple days of use, they weren't noticeable, but if you have sensitive skin/hands, you may wish to take that into considerations.

I find this pen to be nearly perfect. I've grown to prefer marker pens but I haven't used a better gel pen. I think this width is perfect for someone who writes lightly (I find the .25 to be a little too thin for regular usage). Sometimes a little scratchy but generally a beautiful smooth line.
