December 29, 2009
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).

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!

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. 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!

I love how smooth and thin I can make lines with this pen. I wish it came in waterproof ink, but will have to be happy with using it for finishing touches instead.

While these pen work great upon first buying, when they don't, it is rather annoying. I've been using these pens since they were first advertised on Jetpens. Fast forward some years later and more experience, I'm finding that these pens dry out in a year. Maybe I just don't write enough, but I never get to use up all the ink. Considering that they're $3.50 still, compared to a $1 Papermate, I would expect it to kind of last the same? I've always bought the really thin .3mm ones, and very nice when you want to take notes in a small notebook. Even great for use in sketching and doodling artwork. Or just artwork in general, but not recommended for permanence as these inks are not waterproof. They will smear with water and copics or any alcohol based markers. I really do like them when they work. Ink dries up pretty fast; I don't really have smearing problems unless I'm writing on a glossy paper surface -- they don't absorb well on those of course since its gel. But now that I'm older, I don't take notes or write as much -- I definitely don't write with these as often because they're not waterproof like my Noodler's or fountain pen carbon ink. But good for writing quick notes and carrying in your bag since they're a good size.

Great pens. Got here really quickly (thank you, Jet Pens)
The 0.3mm pens are prone to 'drying up'
I have been blessed with this batch - no drying up!

I have terrible handwriting and these pens allow me to read my own work.
Be careful - these pens are prone to being 'lifted' by co-workers, if you leave them lying around.
