I haven't tried the Hi-Tec...
Verified Purchase
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!

The line on this thing...

The line on this thing is SUPER thin, I love it but its too thin for an every day pen. I use it for super small printing or if I want to work on my handwriting. I know some engineers who would love it, so if thin pens are your thing-- definitely check it out. They offer different sizes as well and tons of colors.

The line is just too...
Verified Purchase
The line is just too fine for my preference, but the color is great, and the pen produces a consistent fine line without any effort

Verified Purchase
A very smooth writer with a very fine line. And beautiful to look at. (Note that I write with a very light hand, so the tiny point is plenty sturdy enough for me.) The hotel-style crest is maybe a little silly, but it plus the faceted cap (which posts aesthetically) plus the overall style just makes it nicer than the average pen to have lying around on the desk or whip out for note-taking in meetings.

Verified Purchase
Not sure what I was expecting when I ordered these. My writing style could be the man issue as I tend write "hard" and with this .4mm that didn't do much of anything other than damage the ends of the pens.

The pens are very light weight, styling is attractive but for some reason I'm certain I will not attempt to write with these ever again.
