This is a really handy little pen. Capable of doing finer lines, I find it most
useful for thicker lines, and blackening out larger areas (at least those too
large for a brush pen) cleanly and with minimal streaking. A "squishy" pen, but
firm enough for inking and line work. A fun pen to work with, and a nice
addition to a drawing pen stable.
I ordered this one along with the Pilot Fude-Makase Color Brush Pen. Both are
comparable. If you have one, you may not need the other, and I find them to both
be very similar.
I like this pen a lot. I have all the Zebra ones and this one seems a little
less mushy, with a slightly thinner line. It's a good addition w the Zebras. I
like the blacks, and the fact that I can get a very thin line, but still with
I really like this pen. Good line variation, nice thin line when needed, good
solid black, easy to use. Very good when you want to use a brush pen w line
variations, but still need to do finer renderings. FYI, I use mostly for inking
I'm no brush pen or watercolor expert. I do love these pens. The biggest pluses
1. The tips are very fine, allowing for good detail work, and good line weight
variation, and the bristles stay firm and rigid with good snap back.
2. The colors are very vibrant; moreso that straight Copic markers. My drawings
really pop with these.
3. Great watercolor blending. With cheaper pens, when you apply water, you'll
get a border where your actual line ended, and where the water blended or pushed
the ink. With these, you get a very nice, smooth blend.
I just saw from the above review that there were more colors available. Jetpens
really should expend the available colors.
