These are my favorite refills to use in my Frixion Biz pen, which I frequently employ for lengthy math-work sessions. These are deliciously smooth refills with a brightly pigmented blue ink, and they make a satisfying medium-width line on the page without being overly bold or inky. Dries fairly quickly (3-5 seconds at most) and erases completely clean. These refills also never skip and always start up easily when you need them to. My only complaint is that the ink gets used up quickly due to its semi-viscous nature and 0.7 mm tip. The overall writing experience is so good that I don't mind paying a bit extra for all of the refills that I go through.

This is my absolute favorite pen for math classes! The 0.7 mm refills are very smooth, making it easy to write for a long time without hand fatigue, and the shade of blue in the ink is bold and easy to read. I prefer Frixion pens over pencils for math since they actually erase more cleanly as long as the paper isn't too thin/cheap.

The metal body of this pen was worth the extra cost to me since it adds just the right amount of weight for a good balance in the pen, as well as needing less pressure to write. The knock mechanism in the clip is fairly sturdy, and the eraser hidden under the top cap comes in handy when I don't have my block-style Frixion eraser around. Refills are easy to change out just by unscrewing the silver metal tip. Be careful when putting it back on though, the spring in the front can send the tip zinging across the room if not screwed in before you let go!

Really nice writing instrument, I'd definitely recommend this to fans of the Frixion line who like a heavier pen.

I decided to try these pen bodies and refills out because of the interesting look they had. The pen bodies are very nice to hold and have a somewhat "creamy" textured plastic body. The pen refill sticks out of the back of the pen in a strange and unique way, but the cap covers it when posted. Sadly the felt-tip refills are terrible and do not work well at all. May try the brush-tip in the future to see if I can salvage these pen bodies. Bummer!

The quality is pretty bad on these refills. The tips are very dry and the ink does not flow worth a hoot. Even when left tip-down overnight they still do not become saturated enough to lay down a wet line, and will instead just create a bead of ink on the end, making a mess on the paper. Skip this one.

Got these as part of a gift for a friend. Though I have not tried the ink myself, he told me that he really enjoys using them with his Pilot Metropolitan and that the ink color and quality are very good, and behaves pretty well with regular paper.

I have both set A and B of these pens, and I love them both! They all write very smoothly and lay down a wet line of brightly-colored ink. The scents are amazingly spot-on for most of them as well, though they are most noticeable when the ink is fresh and tends to fade after a day or two. The pen bodies are really cute with glitter and designs that depict the scents, the clip and clicker are of a decent quality, the rubber grip is very effective at preventing finger slippage, and the pens are quite light in the hand.

Bought this as a present for a friend after using my own Pilot Metro for a long time. These are absolutely amazing fountain pens for the price... I don't know how Pilot does it!

The pen body is a medium weight and made entirely from metal except for the plastic grip section, feed, and other inner parts. The nibs are impressively smooth and are very hard (no flex), making them great for fast writing. The grip section has a small lip right before the nib to prevent your fingers from sliding too far forward. The pen cap posts securely on the back and does not throw off the weight of the pen - it's usable but on the short side when un-posted.

I decided to purchase the Fountain Pen CON-50 Converter for my own pen as I personally prefer conventional converters to the squeeze-type converter that comes with the pen. The one that comes with the pen works perfectly well though, and is also good for flushing the pen with water occasionally if you don't have a bulb syringe handy.
The cap fits snugly on the pen and ink rarely dries out in the nib/feed when the pen sits unused for a while.

These pens look just as good in reality as they do in the pictures and perform phenomenally well for the price. Don't pass this one up!
