This multi-pen performs well; each ink and the pencil slide smoothly in place

that has 4 choices. It will take some getting used to. I still need to
incorporate this into my "daily arsenal".

have to reach for another pen -- until you want something in bold text.
I have never used the pencil, and wish instead that I could use green in its
place. However, if you are exclusively doing schematic work, I can see how the
pencil would be invaluable: You can pencil in how things should be, correct
mistakes, and then pen in afterward, all without moving your hand from the
My only serious complaints is with the eraser: It is tiny, and only a small
portion of it is usable without actually removing the eraser from the top of the
