Must be a Pilot error! I...
Must be a Pilot error!

I don’t get it! What’s with all the praise for these pens?! I’m a 30-year I.T. professional and use a multitude of colored inks on various projects. These are some of the worst pens I’ve ever used!

I've tried nineteen different colors of the Pilot FriXion Color Pencil-Like Erasable Gel Ink Pens (0.7mm), the 12-Color Set of Pilot's Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pens (0.4mm), 12 different colors of the Pentel Slicci Gel Inks (using several Pentel Sliccies 3-Color Multi Pens), and the Morning Glory Mach 3 Roller Ball pens (EXTREMELY pleased).

In regard to the FriXion pens, I’m extremely disappointed. They feel cheaply made, have a “scratchy” feel to them, poor writing consistency (inconsistent lines, even when using a single pen), just an overall poor quality pen, and are definitely not worth $2.15 apiece.

As far as gel ink, I prefer the Pentel Sliccies over either of the two Pilot styles mentioned above. For a 0.38mm, the Morning Glory pens are incredibly smooth ... much smoother than the Pilot’s ... and are $2.00 apiece.

If I could return the FriXion’s, I would in a heartbeat, but since I can’t, I’ll probably put them on eBay!

FYI: 1-star rating was not my choice; I’d go lower!

Item is as described!...
Verified Purchase
Item is as described! Best dang notebook of it's size I've EVER used ... bar NONE!! Replaced a larger size notebook that I carry in my briefcase with one of these and this size is perfect! The other notebook is carried in a 17-pocket lightweight utility vest that I wear on weekends when running around town with the wifey! Will buy larger version (in black) eventually to use for meetings and such! GREAT notebook Rhodia and thanx JetPens for a GREAT price!! Gotta luv JP!
