If you've been using thick permanent markers of this type for a while now, you
might start out thinking the retractable function is a gimmick, but it really
isn't - it makes a lot of difference when I'm working that I can just click the
button and write, all one handed - and it also means I always cap the pen right
after using it, since I don't have to hunt down the cap to do so.
Size is excellent for writing on things you need to see from a medium distance,
like a buy-milk note on a sticky you
want to see before heading out; the nib is broad enough to make for the perfect
sized lettering, not so small you have to be at a normal reading distance, not
so big you have to write huge so it's not garbled.
If you need it for uses like writing on moving boxes or anything like that which
requires BIG letters, this is too small and pointed, a bias cut nib is better.
