A little background about my note-taking preference first: I love writing with pens except when taking notes or outlining for a class I use pencils due to the fact that I am always erasing. However because of pencil transfer, like when you write on the other side of the written page, I only use the front side of pages. NEVER THE BACK PAGE. And this never really bothered me, but recently I've been noticing how much more paper I've been wasting compared to my peers. So in comes the Pilot Frixion pen. I was always iffy about eraseable pens, since they didn't seem to give clean pencil-like erasing. But the heat erasing mechanism of the Pilot Frixion pens intrigued me.

When I first got this and the black pen, I was in LOVE. Yes the black looked a bit washed out, but the writing and erasing was amazing. SO CLEAN. And so for the past week I've been writing avidly with my new pens. However upon looking back at my notes I've noticed parts of my notes missing, like a part of a word here and there. And so I realized, when erasing one side of the page, the heat goes through the paper and partially erases what is on the other side. I was devastated. And not to mention soooo frustrated. And while rewriting parts of my notes and getting very annoyed I decided to take a break and write this review.

So yes beside the fact that the heat mechanism does have a downside or two... the pen itself is good and erasing is amazing.

i loooove pilot's hitec-c pens and i finally decided to customize a muli-pen to save some space in my pen case and i'm sooo happy i did! yes the quality isnt amazing, but for an inexpensive pen it is totally functional and worth it. for those who are having problems with changing colors, make sure you have the refills in PROPERLY. i initially was disappointed with the pen-- one color would not move up and down smoothly, but i took it out and realigned it, paying closer attention and realized i wasnt lining up one side correctly! lol. but now its like 2nd nature putting the refills in and changing colors is a breeze. my next purchase will be the black barrel with 4 different colors/pencil refill! so when i'm in a rush, or just going to class i only have to carry the 2 multi pens!! :D

Being a turtle fanatic, the second i saw these i knew i had to have them.
Like another review said, they are smaller in person but their cuteness and functionality makes up for it!
I'm deciding which ones i should get next :)
