| I was expecting a lot...
, November 28, 2013
I was expecting a lot from this highlighter, given all the good things people
here and elsewhere have to say about it, but I wasn't very happy with it. :( The
colour wasn't bright enough and the ink seemed to run out very quickly. I had to
refill it often. I do highlight A LOT, but I've never had this issue with other
highlighters in the past.
Also, I bought the refill station for the highlighter and would leave the
highlighter in the refill station for several hours. Afterwards, the highlighter
seemed to work great, but only for a very short time. It's almost as though it
doesn't hold very much ink. I also did not like the feel of the tip on paper,
and it worked terribly on regular printer paper -- not smooth and not bright
enough. It worked slightly better on textbook paper, but even then...I far
prefer the Preppy refillable highlighter and will stick with that from now on.
| The color is the classic...

The color is the classic highlighter-yellow, and as advertised doesn't smear
over ink-jet printing. The cap is secure when closing the pen, but a little
loose when placed on the end of the pen (in active use).
I also bought the little pot of refill ink, but I haven't needed it yet, after
several months. It seems to last a long time, probably due to the chubby barrel.
I like the flat shape -- easier to control when marking text.
So these are the reasons I have abandoned the other highlighters in my desk. Too
bad -- I have some nice Mildliners and Staedtler highlighting pencils, but I
this one is the one I use all the time.
