I haven't tried the Hi-Tec...

I haven't tried the Hi-Tec C Maica series before, and decided to jump into it and purchased it based on how much I like Pilot's Hi-Tec C series (0.4mm) which I've used for over a decade now. I went with the Blue Black colour since I liked how it was different from the usual blue and black on the market. I'm really glad that I decided to buy this. It has become one of my favourite pens to use! The 0.3mm hit that sweet spot for me. Before this, depending on what I was writing, I found the 0.4mm Hi-tec C to be on the thick side. This was especially the case when I was trying to make notes on the margins. That's no longer the case with this pen. I was able to write my tiny notes on the margins, without having to worry about letters and characters blending together. It writes smoothly, and there was no breakage in ink as well. It always came out to a crisp and clear line. I've now used this pen for a bit over 7 months, and have just put in an order for the entire set! There isn't much of a grip on the plastic barrel, so if your fingertips get a bit sweaty and damp after writing for a long time, you may find that the pen might start to slip a bit, but if you're used to using the regular Hi-Tec C pens, this likely won't bother you much.

I highly recommend the Maica pens to people who love the Hi-Tec C Pens as much as I do! It won't disappoint!

Great Pen. I thought it might be scratchy with such a fine tip, but it was not.

This is about the best pen I've ever used. I love the, the feel, the flow. It's fine but not scratchy. Love it . . .for about one week. I'm not sure if it's dry or if I used to heavy a hand, or being dropped did it in, but its now very inconsistent. I work retail and let customers use my pens, so maybe one of them mashed the tip. But for as much love as I have for this pen the durability has been lacking. Five stars despite that because I assume some user error, and it started off THAT well.

I was a Hi Tec-C lover anyway but I have to say the maicas add another touch. more comfortable to hold and prettier to look at. Prefer the 0.4mm but even in a 0.3mm the color is good! Smooth writer.

absolutely love the Maica. It's smooth, solid, and the cap stays securely on the end. Personally, I prefer the 0.4mm because there's no scratchiness. But scratchiness in this 0.3mm is minimal.

This has the finest point on all of the pens I purchased in the .28-.4 range. The tip is true to size, as are the others, yet for some reason it writes very smoothly and with little effort even managing to go through two part forms.

I'm a little obsessed with blue black ink. I bought a large selection of blue black pens from JetPens to sample. This pen is relatively dark, but not the darkest of the lot. It's tip is like nothing else I've ever used... it's almost like writing with a needle, it's sooo fine, and obviously the line it writes is extremely fine as well... the finest of all the pens I purchased. It is scratchy when I write because of it. I also bought the 0.4 version, and that was just slightly less fine (2nd finest of all I bought, even finer than the other two .38 pens), but less scratchy. The pen itself is beautiful... very elegant looking.

These arrived well before the expected date. I believe they received within four or five days of ordering them. They arrived in perfect condition and work just as I expected. The smoothest pen I have ever written with...and they don't smear!! I also always write small, so the fineness of these pens (I ordered the 0.3) is perfect! Can't say enough good things about it.
