5/5 in concept, 3/5 in...
5/5 in concept, 3/5 in practice...
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...
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.
