I have these and the Staedtler 0.3mm set. The Stabillo has more colors so that
is a plus, but both of them have a serious flaw in the ink that bothers me, and
it happens on a variety of good art papers. I have tried them on Canson XL
marker paper, Canson XL mixed media paper and Copic marker paper and I get a
strange texture from the ink - as if it is bleeding into the paper in some spots
and staying on top of the paper in others. It does not seem to lay down as
smoothly as I would like.
These do feel a bit thinner to me, but that isn't a problem for me, but it might
be a problem for others.
Frankly, I have a tough time telling much difference in the Staedtler 0.3 mm and
Stabillo 0.4 tips when it comes to the size, and they both put down very fine
lines for writing. I just don't like filling in an area with solid coverage.
