I've used so many different brush pens over the years, but had until recently given up on them out of frustration. They all had problems; they frayed or dried out quickly, they were difficult to control, or they were too expensive for the quality I got. I was recommended this pen by a fellow artist, and I've got to say so far I'm in love. The other major issue I find with pens is their marker resistance, as I do a lot of work with copic markers and found that some pens, even if marked "water resistant" or even "waterPROOF", will bleed when I go over them with markers. I did my first full colored picture I had inked with these pens, and there was absolutely no bleeding at all. By far the best brush pen I have EVER used!!

After using it for a while now and comparing it to Zebra and some other brush fibre tip pens, this Uni pen beats them easily. It is very juicy and black unlike Zebra which is black but not as dark as Uni and it is harder tip. Lasts longer than Zebra also probably one of the reasons it is on the expensive side but worth it. Perhaps Zebra pens are more for smaller artwork as they are not as juicy therefore create thinner line, but that can be done with this Uni pen also by holding the pen more vertical. 5 stars

I also have the Zebra Disposable Brush Sign Pen - Super Fine and the Kuretake Fudegokochi Brush Pen - Regular. The Uni-ball brush pen has a very soft tip, compared to the Zebra and Kuretake. I don't like soft tips because I have less control over the line. I just use the pens to write Chinese characters. Things may be different if you are an artist.

Very similar to the Pilot hard pen, but not quite as wet ink flow.

Like all of these types of pens, it can't handle very fast, longer strokes, but is very capable and offers some line variation.

I've tried countless numbers of brush pens and actual sable traditional ink brushes for my cartooning,..and this little beauty has them all beat by a mile!! The rubbery type of tip offers control yet flexibility for an amazing result! Thick to thin lines are no longer an issue and no more spilled ink bottles or dried out bristles! What a pen! Congrats to Uni-ball for such a fine cartooning tool!!
