Set includes: red, black, blue, light blue, green, pink, orange, and purple ballpoint pens.

The Staedtler Maxum ballpoint pens are perfect for those looking for a broad line, with a wide point of 1.6 mm. The transparent plastic bodies are lightweight and allow you to view the ink levels, while the rubber grips ensure writing comfort. The smooth pen tip won’t scratch when writing, and dispenses a quick-drying acid-free ink that is smear-proof, permanent, and waterproof once dry.

bought these about a month ago. will do a pro and con review.

-Big Bold lines (if you like more narrow pens i.e 0.5 0.7 these wont be for you. these offer a nice thick line when writing
- Pretty shell
- The colors are gorgeous! They are bright and heavy but don't sink through to the back of the paper.

- The pens skip at first, and i don't mean when you use them for the first time. I will use these for notes in class and I have to have a separate piece of paper to doodle on quickly before I start writing with the pen because if you don't "Warm" up the pen then you have a whole bunch of indentations on your paper from where you tried to get the ink flowing.
- The grip on the pen is not comfortable at all!
- The cap feels very loose on the top of the pen if you keep it there while writing. I can feel it bobbing around while I write so I usually just leave it off completely.

Overall the ink color is amazing but, I would not purchase again due to the fact that the ink skips every time I use it and it isn't a comfortable pen.

September 1, 2012
I bought these pens at a drugstore about 3-4 years ago, and while I've lost about half of them over the years, I still have and use the blue, red, pink, and black pens today--they're nearly out of ink but they still write with a nice bold line, especially blue & red. The silver writing on the barrels has worn off over the years, but that's no surprise.
By the way: the pens do benefit from a few squiggles on scratch paper before use, then they warm up and start writing perfectly...because I noticed some skips during the first few sentences. But after that, its smooth sailing! The writing is not as smooth as Jetstream, of course, but its comfortable enough for long journaling sessions and serious note-taking, even on cheap school notebooks, like USA Mead composition books. The 1.6mm lines are easy to read and the colors have stayed bold and bright over the years (except when I read my notes taken with the pink and light green pens, those two colors are probably too bright for readable notes).
So take a little chance on these pens. I am glad to see Jetpens carrying them, because now I want the full set again and I cannot find them anywhere anymore!

Love the width, but a few of the colors are too light for more than highlights or margin notes, so I pulled back a star. Very easy on the hand & don't gouge cheap paper like the needle points so prevalent.

Great bright colors. These write with a bold line and the colors are very saturated, better than I expected. However, they don't write consistently on some types of paper.
