Beautiful blue. Easy to sketch with, creamy color and lay down on card stock.
It does erase cleanly with some pressure if you've made a heavier and darker
mark. But if you are looking for a pencil lead that will not reproduce in from
scanners for clean line art, this is a really good lead.
Though I did notice that it wore down fairly quickly when sketching with it.
Will have to buy more to assure a steady supply as I think it is a softer lead
than for average mechanical pencils.
Still, well worth it to finally have smudge free clean line art!
This might be a good pen for use on dark papers or certain mediums but in a test
as a correction pen replacement for use in line art and inking over black, it
did not hold up well by compare to the Sakura Gelly Roll white and Uni-ball
Signo Broad. Those two just wow'd me and I use them for broad and pin point
corrections in my art work and line art.
Honestly this is a really, really fabulous pen for whiting out areas in need of
correction. I've tested at least three other gel pens against it and in order of
similarity, some either held up well or just did not match the opacity and flow
of this pen.
/531 Held up marvelously in terms of opacity and flow and to be so cheap I was
really surprised by how well it worked in compare to the Uni-ball. The Uni-ball
is fantastic if you have to spot correct a semi largish area but the broadness
of the pen tip makes it harder if you do very fine spots so the 0.4mm of the
Sakura is a good twin to the 0.8mm of the Uni-ball.
this one was just not as great as I had imagined it would be. For the cost which
is close to the Uni-ball Signo Broad, I really did expect for this pen to be
just as opaque but the ink was actually rather thin over the pens and I tested
this against a variety of inks. It just did not do as well as the Uni-ball and
/1309 Using the silver as a kind of aid for anyone considering on buying the
Pentel Sunburst Gel Ink Pen in White should JetPens ever bring it in stock.
Still medium tip and much like the Hybrid, it was just not as thick as it could
have been. Repeated layering doesn't seem to be a huge problem but I like being
able to put down a coat of white from the onset.
In summation, if you draw, stick with the Sakura or the Uni-ball. Pentel is a
great pen company but they just need to thick up their white or make it more
This link shows my test and the pens I tested these four against.
