I used it for one day and the next day it started leaking. Then when i tried to
fix it it broke and now the liquids dried out and when i push the retraction
button thing the green part you unscrew bounces off. It might be that mine just
got messed up from shipping or maybe i just pushed it too hard but honestly I
just wasted $4.25.
I had first bought one of these because I had never seen anything like it. After
sketching and drawing in red ink for for long, I used these to cover any
unwanted lines. the first pen I had did great, but the second batch I ordered
was more touch and go. I recomend them if you have al ight hand, since pushing
down too hard will give you the double lines mentioned in previous reviews. This
works better than the standard white out pen though, and lasts for quite a long
time. Over all, I enjoyed this product.
First, it is awesome looking, and i am super partial to retractables!
The design and mechanism is a bit interesting. the white out cartridge is
similar to that of gel pens. They managed to make it so you dont have to shake
the damn thing every time you use it.
The flow of the white out depends greatly on how hard you push it. but be
warned, you dont have to push very had to get whiteout out. In fact, for quite
awhile i kept on pooling white out onto my paper. so white out with a constant
controlled pressure for the best result.
The problem with this though is that the whiteout does dry out on the tip,
making it difficult to start and difficult in making white out even. To solve
this you may want to rub off the dried white out off the tip, or scribble with
it on another piece of paper. (dont worry it wont get on your hands if it is
To make the white out look at its best, use a zig zag pattern like \/\/\/, and
not swirlies. This is because it dries fairly "fast", and when you go over the
same region again, it will not only make it thicker, but cause ripples and
And my final words about this is that, unlike other retractables, you dont have
to worry about the ink drying up if you dont retract it. BUT, be careful to
retract it back in its sheath before storing it, because the tip is very prone
to leaks if something presses against it. you dont want to ruin other pens or
your favorate bookbag with this.
This thing is so lame, whenever you try to make a correction, it writes in two
lines rather than one, and there's nothing where you intended to make the
correction in the first place. Because of this, I never use it. Overall; a
complete waste of money :(
