The Pilot G-2 is my favorite daily-use pen, and, apparently, I'm not alone as
it's the #1 selling pen in America. Soooo... why doesn't Pilot offer this
multi-colored set in .38 mm??? I'd never use another pen (this is a lie) if
they did! Please, Pilot - more colors in the .38 mm G-2!
This is the perfect shade of yellow. It's a warm golden-y / orange-y yellow and
is a welcome change from the horrible fluorescent yellow highlighter.
Almost perfect save for the fact that the color bleeds through 20 lb paper.
Honestly though, this is not enough of a problem for me that I won't purchase
this highlighter again. I bought the full set of five but really just find
myself reaching for the blue, yellow and pink so I'm purchasing those colors
If you're looking for another "soft" colored highlighter that doesn't bleed
through, try the Essenti highlighters.
My daily pens are the Pilot G-2 .38 mm and the Pilot Hi-Tec-C pens. If you like
either of those, you will probably like these just fine.
I prefer both pilots to these Signo pens, however, I use the Signo pen
exclusively in my chemistry classes where my papers / notebook is very likely to
get wet. These are waterproof and my lab notebooks are no longer a big blur
after class! Also, the plastic box / case they come in is very generous in size
and is perfect for storing additional highliters, pencils, erasers and
paperclips. Highly recommend these pens!
Just FYI - this highlighter is SUPPOSED to be soft / pastel. It is great for
use in my math classes where I use pencil. Heavier / darker highlighters make
it very difficult to see pencil marks but this highlighter leaves pencil
completely legible. I've tried going back to the regular highlighter styles but
they are too dark.
I took off half a star because the paint on the body of the highlighter flakes
off making the highlighter look a little "janky." Another half a star because
they don't last quite as long as "regular" highlighters. I am purchasing more
