  After all is said and..., February 24, 2011

After all is said and done, I think a combination of Sliccis and Hi Tec C's would be a perfect addition to any pencil case.

The blue-black pen i got was veryvery inky, moreso than usual and I love it! it writes in nice dark lines. However, it does run out of ink fairly quickly. They are both very unscratchy and you can write nice and smoothly with them.

The 0.25 is way too thin for me, and I only bought it to write my finals notecard in (because its basically a notecard where you write as much info as you can. therefore having a thinner pen works very well).

After writing with both the Hi Tec C and Slicci in 0.4, I would say both the tips are fine. The Slicci tip is noticeably sturdy, but the Hi Tec C is fine too. Unless you write amazingly heavily, it is no problem. However, the Hi Tec C tip is nicer looking compared to the slicci one. Also, the Hi Tec C has a wider barrel and a hexagonal shape, which is easier to grip than the slicci's small circle shape.

Overall, I love both of these pens, and I think they're a lot better than Sarasas. Signos are also nice, but get a 0.38 because 0.28 Signos are rather scratchy.

I have finally found my favorite pen! I had heard all sorts of good things about the Hi-Tec-C pens, and finally got around to trying them. The 0.4mm Blue Black pen will be my writing instrument of choice for as long as I can get my hands on it. It's a precisely fine line in a wonderful shade. I have not had any issues with the ink skipping, and have found the pen to write wonderfully every time.

I LOVE THESE PENS!!!!!
First of all, people love to diss the plastic barrel quality. I would like to say that it is PERFECTLY fine! There's nothing wrong with it. The lightweight construction reduce fatigue when writing for long session and I would know because I would sit and write and study for 12 hours with minimal breaks! The lightweight helps and it's very comfortable as well.

Second, this blue black color is, by far, THE best blue black I've ever tried. I love the color very much. I can't really describe it, but it's just right.

Third, the 0.4mm, is the perfect size to write notes with. It's not too large, too thin, it's just perfect.
However, you do have to let the ink run after a word or so. The ink can be scratchy for a word or so, but that is NOT a concern whatsoever.

Now for the best part, it is less than 4$!!!! it writes so much better than some quality pens that run in the hundreds *cough cough Montblanc* So just get one and try it out before making a judgement and perhaps in the future you'll save hundreds by using this pen. Have fun writing with it!

This pen is perfect for people who write small. I've been looking for a pen that wouldn't turn my small handwriting into a muddled, incomprehensible blob of ink. So far, the pen hasn't skipped and it's not scratchy either. Heavy handed writers beware: the tip of the pen could bend if you bear down heavily. The shade of ink is awesome as well. I'm not a fan of black ink, and blue ink can be a little iffy. This blue/black shade is wonderful.

If you plan on writing for a long period of time (i.e: in class) you might want to find a grip. It's not easy on the fingers.

Overall, I'd say this pen is pretty much amazing.

  After trying 0.3, 0.4,..., November 19, 2008
After trying 0.3, 0.4, and 0.5 mm (I didn't try 0.25 because I knew it would be too thin) I find this pen to be the best. The 0.5 mm line was a bit too thick for me and was similar to a Sarasa, while the 0.3 mm would lose its ink flow once in a while and I would have to shake it a bit. I found the 0.4 mm to be just right, and the Blue-Black ink color is the best. This is going to be the pen that I do all of my work with.

Good pen!

PROS
-I love the color! It's a perfect blend of blue and black.
-Produces a very fine line and allows for precise writing and drawing.
-The ink dries quickly and does not smudge.

CONS
-The pen build quality feels cheap.
-The pen is too thin. Fatigue may be a problem.
-The pen is a bit "scratchy" when you try to write with it. This is especially noticeable when you write on a single sheet of paper over a hard surface. If you are writing in a notebook or something that has several layers of paper beneath it, the scratchy feeling is not noticeable.
-Pricey
