I really like these quite a bit. I like to color adult coloring books
(mandalas, etc) as a way to relax, and these are amazing for handling the detail
work. They are NOT so good for covering larger areas - I am honestly sticking
with my Crayola markers for that. These will feather a bit if you press too
hard or get an area too damp with ink.
I really love the color selection, although it question why I have 7 shades of
pink and no true yellow. Either way, good markers.
This is a really great pen. Very slim body, comfortable to hold, and the ink is
a very dark, vivid purple. Tip is slightly thicker than the Staedtler triplus
fineliners. Overall, a very nice, cheap pen.
These are really pretty great. I own Frixions in all available tip sizes, and
these are my second favorites (the .5 ball knocks are the best for me). These
are really nice pens - they write smoothly, the ink is pigmented, and they erase
cleanly. Be warned, though, that these are very slim and short, almost like a
Slicci, and I know some people take issue with those.
Basically, if you need an extremely fine-tipped erasable pen for your planner,
you can't go wrong with these.
First, these are SUPER cute. I love Miffy anyways, so the packaging alone sold
me. Apples dot the pen case, and they're capped off with a bright, transluscent
Now, here's the thing. All of the 'sweet' scents smell basically the same to me
- there's a few I can pick out as different, but overall, they all smell alike.
But the main problem I have with these is how darn bad they skip. I will say
that once you get them going, they seem to behave better, but unfortunately it
seems like you have to get them going every single time you use them.
On the plus side, all the colors are extremely bright and vivid - honestly, some
of the brightest and best I've seen in a gel pen.
If you get nothing else, order the Lavender one. It is truly unique in the
world of gel pens - it's a bright, saturated periwinkle color. I have a vast
amount of pens and absolutely nothing else looks like it.
I like these. For one, they are just a good looking pen, with an almost
brushed-metal body and corresponding grip. The retractable mechanism is smooth
and works well, and I love that it's on the clip, not the end of the pen. They
write incredibly smoothly, and they also erase cleanly. For comparison, they
erase better than the Frixion crayon-like .7 ones. The one downside to these is
that the ink has an almost faded look to it, so don't expect bright bold colors
like you might see from a regular gel pen. Depending on your style, the faded
look may or may not be a bad thing. I personally like it, because it makes even
the more 'bold' colors more acceptable at work. Very pleased with these.
These are okay. I have always liked a good fine-tipped marker pen, and these
have some definite advantages over some of the other ones. For one, these
absolutely have the boldest, most pigmented ink, which I really like. On the
downside, the casing for these feels almost flimsy - I don't think it's in any
danger of breaking, but after the sturdiness of the Staedtlers, they feel kind
of bendy. They do have the finest tip out of any of the marker pens I've tried
though, and I appreciate them for that and the pigmentation. Try one of these
and a Staedtler and see what suits you best. :)
I never write reviews of stuff, but I had to come and express how much I love
these. I am a total gel pen junkie and have everything from Sliccis to Sarasas
to regular Hi-Tec-C's. The Maicas are absolutely my favorite. They are just a
joy to write with - the colors are vivid and true, and like all Hi-Tec-C pens,
they write smoothly, with no skipping or clumping. The main reason I like these
more than the standard Hi-Tec-C's is the thicker pen body, which just feels
better in the hand, and the tip, which doesn't seem as delicate.
Now I wait for these to come in more colors. I absolutely love them.
