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 cap.

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. Frustrating.

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,...
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.
