I really like the needle...
I really like the needle tip and the balance of width, length and weight. However, the biggest con, and the reason this isn't a 5 is the scratchy nature of the writing experience. The reason I am not giving this pen a lower score is that I'm mainly a printer, and the short strokes I use to form letters are not as negatively impacted as would be in script. I would order this pen again, even though for a scratchy pen, I think the price is perhaps too high a price point. I must disagree with the recommendation of the Uniball Signo over this pen, as that experience is completely different (apples to oranges), and I haven't drank the Uniball Signo Kool-Aid (though I have tried and tried). I am still debating giving this pen a four, but I went back in writing this review, and indeed, the scratchy nature (though not necessarily skipping) really precludes this from being a four. I wish I could give it a 3.75..... :)

I came back to re-order...
Verified Purchase
I came back to re-order this pen, and saw only one customer reviewed it thus far. I would give this pen five stars even if it didn't cost this much. I can't even BELIEVE that such a great pen is that inexpensive. For those of you who are reading before purchase, this is a needle-style point, capped pen. The needle is wide enough that it won't bend if you put a bit of pressure on it. It writes evenly and rarely skips. The only con I can think of is that it goes through ink quickly and it can make the other side of the page (if you have paper that isn't too thick) unable to be used because of the thru-paper visibility of the gel ink. You cannot beat the price, and no matter how you think about this pen, it's a win/win! :)

I will begin by saying...
Verified Purchase
I will begin by saying if this was based only on my love of the Miffy pens...then it would be a 5 out of 5. However, I have to be honest about the biggest problem with these, skipping. If they wrote consistently, they could be twice the price and STILL a bargain. But since I'm now passing them up in lieu of pens that write smoothly, I feel I have to post a review. For price, they are clearly a 5/5. For color variety, also a 5/5. But overall I must confess, they are getting a 3/5. Every few words, they don't write. I have to either stop and shake it down and facilitate inkflow on another page, then start again or keep going over the same letter a few times, which ruins the look of my page. So....do I love these budget-conscious scented little numbers? Heck yes! But I'm frustrated with the stop and go way in which they write. And I have at least 20 of them - and all of them share the same "skippy" nature to them, so I didn't get a lemon (if that's what you were thinking). Love 'em but must confess that I will wait before ordering more so maybe they fix the problem. I hope in six months I'm 100% wrong & I can come back and post an addendum!

AMAZING pen - one of...
Verified Purchase
AMAZING pen - one of my go-go gel ink writing implements. However, I prefer the better-flowing 0.4mm to the 0.3mm. However, I would give this a 4.5 stars since I'm buying yet ANOTHER black 0.3mm Maica right now... so I cannot say it isn't great. The limitations are as follows: 1) Scratchy in some instances but not all 2) occasionally skips 3) Fragile tip so it would be of limited use for heavy-pressing writers. Great pen at a great price. Once again, if I could I would give this a 4.5 instead of a 4, but that's sadly not an option. It's a great part of my pen portfolio & I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I have no less than 15...
Verified Purchase
I have no less than 15 of these babies....ranging in point size. But my absolutely favorite is the 0.4mm black pen. It's a serious bargain and it lasts a very long time. Granted, I have at least 4 on my desk at any given time, so I've never used one exclusively to the end of the ink capacity. The one thing to be careful with is the delicateness of the point. If you are a hard-pressing writer, perhaps you should re-consider the purchase. But if you are average to delicate, this is your pen. The 0.4mm rarely skips (0.3 occasionally has an ink flow issue) and does not bleed or soak through. It's versatile, attractive and one of my go-to pens. It's a gem in every point size, but by far the 0.4mm is the reigning king of the Maica Gel Ink kingdom!

What bang for the buck!...
Verified Purchase
What bang for the buck! This comical pen probably deserves a 4.5 simply because the scent just detracts from it's appeal, but I gave it 5 stars because for the price, it's one heck of a pen....and more. I like the fun cartoon embellishments, the darkness of the ink, and the nice width of point. I like that it has a cap rather than a retractable point. All this for that price. Wow! I came back today to buy two more, and couldn't resist writing a review touting the features of Miffy's 0.5mm pen!

I just love the Propus...
Verified Purchase
I just love the Propus & Propus 2 highlighters. This particular number is perfect for my needs, but I must confess that I do not use it as chronically or extensively as the initial reviewer who uses highlighters as a full-time student. I use it every day, but no extensively. I own no less than 15 Propus and Propus2 colors, and it is definitely a go-to pen. The versatility of having both wide & fine points in one pen is pretty cool and for my purposes, they last about as long as expected, if not longer. I do love the blue, but if you need more than one, get yourself one of the hot pink Propus 2's and you will NOT be sorry.

Terrific little sharpener,...
Verified Purchase
Terrific little sharpener, more durable than expected, and of course compact! I own no less than 30 types of sharpeners. Some might call me obsessive, others might say I was a connoisseur of sharpeners. Regardless, I not only ordered this product, but I RE-ordered it....dare I say more than once. I thought the spring would break and it has not - I thought the clip would break but it hasn't (yet). My only complaint, since I need to give you at least one - is that once the clip opened in my pencil case, and a few pencil shavings were released.... but this only happened once, so it did not detract from giving this little number FIVE STARS! And for $3.30 USD.....WHAT A DEAL?! Not convinced?? Order it and you too will believe! :)

In general, I don't just...
Verified Purchase
In general, I don't just love Slicci pens, I LOVE them. Love. However, I would steer you toward the 0.3, 0.4 (my fave) or 0.7mm which I have given a 5 out of 5 stars (but would love to give them a 10 out of 5 stars if possible!). The 0.25mm Slicci skips a lot, always feels on the verge of dried out, and with the least amount of pressure, bends the tip rendering it useless. It feels strange giving any Slicci 2 out of 5 stars, b/c I use this brand the most of ANY pen I own (and I own more than most here can imagine) but the 0.25mm doesn't do the name justice, and I think they need to either improve its function/design or just stick to what they do better than well, wider width tips. Buy the Slicci, just not the 0.25. 0.3 and 0.4 are plenty fine - and the 0.3 seems to write like a 0.25 of other brands, so you won't sacrifice in fine-ness, but will get significantly better quality if you just size up. Slicci is a bargain for the quality, and once you find the width that works, buy a lot, but watch out if you store the refills - I've had issues with ink drying even in fully packaged refills, but that's for another review! :)

Let me prefaces my review...
Verified Purchase
Let me prefaces my review by saying how much I adore the Pentel Slicci pens in general. I love them, and have just about every size in many colors - but my second favorite is this, the 0.7mm black Gel Ink Pen. My fave is the same pen in a 0.4mm size (which appears not to be in stock currently). This pen is fantastic...does not skip and produces a very nice dark line. It does tend to use a lot more ink than the 0.4mm but then again that goes without saying since it's a 0.7mm. Considering the price, quality and usability, this pen is clearly a 5 out of 5 stars and I would HIGHLY recommend this to one and all. But since you are still on this site if you are currently reading my review.... go put the 0.4mm AND the 0.3mm in your cart. However, after purchasing all the other widths, I recommend you avoid the 0.25mm width because I find it skips more than it writes, and even considering the thin width of the line, it is nowhere near dark enough. For the tiny width lines, I would go to another model instead of the Slicci (several here on Jet Pens are amazing) or consider a drawing pen. Anyway, I would give the Slicci 0.3 - 0.7 ten stars if that were possible!
