I actually like this pen quite a bit. I normally like to use the Papermate Flair
for smaller sketches, but now I think I like this one more, as it's a little
bolder and I can get some (very slight) line weight variation out of it. (But
it's still a felt pen tip, so not too much variation.) The ink is a very dark
and rich black, it glides on paper smoothly, and dries super fast - no smearing
(and I've gotten smearing problems from other pens before.) It does feel a
little rough when you keep going over the same area where you've put down ink,
but it's not a big deal as I'm not typically doing that. It doesn't bleed
through the paper I've used it on either, for either the Fabriano EcoQua
notebooks (85gsm) or 24lb laser paper.
Great pen, I will definitely consider getting it again, after I try out all of
my other felt tip pens from JetPens!
(As a side note - I'm not having any of the problems that the other reviewer
had. No smearing, and no real problems when erasing over it - just very, very
slight fading when using a Tombow Mono eraser, and that's after going over the
same area a lot.)
