Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner Marker Pen - 0.4 mm - 25 Color Set - Wallet - STABILO 8825-1

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.

Copic atyou Spica Micro Glass Glitter Pen - 12 Color Set - B - COPIC GL12BSET

I wasn't sure about these at first. They are scratchy and will dig up huge amounts of paper as you are drawing or writing if you are on cheap paper. But on good quality Copic paper or Canson XL it looks great. These dry quickly and no smearing. Like another reviewer, I find the Sakura glitter pens except that they tend to flow much higher rates than these and can over saturate with the Sakuras - the Copic atyou Spica pens do not have this problem.
