The new Hi-Tec-C colors from Pilot look absolutely delicious. Perhaps that's why they have flavored names, the first of its kind in the Hi-Tec-C line. Adding to an already impressive color line, these five new colors bring the Hi-Tec-C line to a whopping 51 colors!

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 0.25 mm, 0.3 mm, 0.4 mm, and 0.5 mm sizes.

The color is such a bright neon that you should only use this pen for drawing leaves or coloring, not writing. Even at 0.4 mm width, the ink is difficult to read. I tried writing over the words a couple times, and it's still pretty hard to read. If you want a pretty green color that IS readable, go for the Hi-Tec-C "Apple Green" color (it's a grass green/apple green color). That was how I imagined this pen to be before I got the Muscat pen and started writing with it.

While the Soda Blue and Grape colors are washed out in the Cutie Colors series, and the Mango and Strawberry amazingly bright, this Muscat has become a highlighter. In fact, if you got this pen, you should go ahead and use it to highlight text, because you won't be able to see it unless it's in a thick block of color.

Tried this again, and found that it works if you write something twice. For this color, definitely go for the 0.5.

A cute color, in abstract. But on paper, you can't even see it! :( I want to like it, but I can't even read it.

on my monitor the photo of the line drawn by the 0.4 mm muscat is true to what i see. and even what jetpens shows, its not that easy to see.

but i have to agree that it comes off as thiner than a 0.4 because it is so light and does not show very well on white paper. in contrast the strawberry 0.3 mm looks positively black next to the muscat.

i think the muscat color is REALLY cute, but its probably best to avoid this particular color. either that or buy it in the 0.5. and def do not get it in smaller than 0.4...

i _might_ buy this in the 0.5 and report later. just because i think the muscat green is so damn cheerful...

The color in the picture is quite deceiving. In reality the color is much brighter and more of a neon color which makes it hard to read and take notes with.
