The best part about this highlighter is the thin tip. Unlike other double-sided
highlighters, the Tombow Kay Coat's thin tip is very durable. Usually, you have

The broad tip isn't as handy. It's hard to make a consistent line with them. You

consider this boldness a positive trait, the dark color makes it hard to read
highlighted text written in dark ink.
