I was expecting a lot...

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.
