great highlighter for...
great highlighter for use in textbooks and on bible pages since it doesn't bleed through! can cause smudges on heavier inks like sharpies but only if the ink is wet. good product!

When I first got this...
When I first got this highlighter, I wasn't aware of its crayon-like design, and at first I didn't like it at all. A few days later, I was reading and making notes in a literature anthology for a class I'm taking. I always use a pencil to underline instead of highlighting because the pages are so thin, but even with a pencil I can still see my marks clearly from the back of the page. I suddenly remembered this highlighter, and I am extremely happy with the results. Even if I lay it on thick, it can barely be seen through the page.
I still think the design could be better. The tip is cut in a way that makes it very hard to use neatly, but after using it for a while and wearing it down to an angled tip like a normal highlighter, it works much better, and it is a lot easier to be precise and neat. I also wish the gel stick was thinner, but I guess that might cause stability issues. With that said, I would highly recommend this highlighter for anybody that is in college and has problems highlighting on the ultra-thin pages that seem to be in most textbooks now, and if you're put off by the poorly shaped tip at first, use it for a while. You can wear it down to any angle to suit the way you like to use it.

These are great to use...
These are great to use for all types of art. Sharpie has yet to let me down. I usually stock up from www.bulkofficesupply.com because that seems to be the cheapest place to get sharpies from. If you guys have a better place let me know, because I run through these like cupcakes. :) lol

Interesting concept, but I feel like using a stick deodorant when handling it, lines aren't as consistent as when using the traditional or liquid highlighters.

This is a fun highlighter....
This is a fun highlighter. The best part about it is that it does not smear any kind of ink, as long - of course - that you wait until the ink is dry to use it. In consistency it is somewhat like a wax crayon, and it is a bit messy to use. You can't get a perfectly clean line with it and it leaves little crumbs all over the page. But it's fun. It's like colouring with a crayon when you were a kid. The Sharpie Gel is currently my favourite highlighter, but it's probably not for everyone.
