I take notes in math class with the Uni Jetstream Multi Pen that includes a
pencil so in concept, a correction tape/eraser tool is perfect. Unfortunately
this item didn't live up to my expectations.
The tape is smooth and corrects quite nicely but sometimes it does not stick to
the paper and I have to use my finger to press it down before writing over it.
I do give it a 4/5 on strength so I can write over it with slightly less
pressure and it does not tear. The replacement is very easy- the case removes
easily and it is a matter of popping out and the used up tape holder and placing
the new one on top.
The eraser erases quite well however it does not last long; definitely buy
replacements when buying this product. The replacement is not easy- I had to
pry the eraser out of its holder by using tweezers and I made a mess because it
kept cutting up the eraser into little shreds.
Pros: Retractable ends, quality tape, quality eraser, ease of use, nice fit in
hand, easy replacement of correction tape, perfect for someone that needs an
eraser but will not use it a lot compared to the tape.
Cons: Eraser does not last long, replacement of eraser not easy
I hope Tombow improves this product because it has great potential.
Overall I am very happy with this pen. I am a big fan of the uni jetstream
line. There are a couple of things I would like to see improved on this pen and
they would be 1) the pencil click could be more sturdy. I find that sometimes i
have to click more than once to get the pencil to come out. Additionally the
pencil holder at the bottom doesn't hold the lead as tight as I like. Maybe I
write hard but my lead breaks off a lot. 2) I would make the thread on the
bottom piece stronger so that the top part doesn't screw off during writing.
This happens every so often and it is annoying but because I love the pen so
much, I deal with it.
