Well don't know about the other color, but this pen's cap is definitely self
colored, or close enough I can't tell the difference. I bought 2 because I love
purple, and so does my mom. Not regretting it one second, although I did put a
purple style fit in the green spot, I have no need for green. It is working
great! Would buy again and recommend to others.
To answer the question about changing the lead, it's simple,unscrew the pen tip
the pencil apparatus is on a clear tube, you just pull that out, put lead in,
and refasten it, nothing breaks, or comes apart when you do this. You just make
sure it's secure before you put the tip back on. The ink is the same place, you
just pull out ink tube, and put refill in spot you pulled the ink from. push
till it's secure, feel free to pull it to make sure.
Well I have to say it's an okay pen, not sure if it's worth the price though.
I'll keep it. It's not a true black, nor as dark as the picture, it's more like
a charcoal ... brownish tinge to it, I put my Hi-Tec C refills in it and it is a
Yay! I found a gel refill that works with them. Pental Slicci refills, and they
have purple! (quickly replaces green with purple) Anyway beautiful pen, and
writes nicely even with the Dr. Grip ink it comes with (I just prefer gel.)
It is nice and smooth, so is Ain, however this lead is not as strong as Ain's
lead. I was able to break it when I tried, but wasn't able to break Ain's lead,
if you find this lead breaking on you during the course of your writing, go with
Ain. However, this is nice, feels smooth against the paper, and is not "easy" to
break. Took more force to break it than I normally put on a pencil while
writing, so it's a keeper yay! I have this and Ain won't need lead for a while.
