Zebra Prefill 3 Color Multi Pen Body Component - Limited Edition - Dot White - ZEBRA S3A11-DTW
  I do like this pen body,..., October 20, 2013
I do like this pen body, but there are a few things that I wish I knew before buying it. First of all, the top knock (for advancing pencil lead, if you use a mechanical pencil component) is obviously useless if you don't use a mechanical pencil component (I don't, and it took me a surprisingly long time to figure out the "problem" with the knock.). Secondly, this may be obvious from the refills, but you have to look at the refill itself (through the clear part of the body) to determine what color you have selected. The tabs are not colored like the Hi-Tec-C Coleto.

Anyway, that said, I really like the pen body. Nice and light, not too wide for me (pictures are accurate in this regard). I thought that it rattled a little when I wrote, but I tested it recently and all was well. Very nice.
Nomadic PE-08 Easy Classification Pencil Case - Red - NOMADIC EPE 08 RED
  A++ case. I wanted to..., April 28, 2013
A++ case. I wanted to add that the size of this case is such that you are able to easily store objects other than writing instruments - for example, I have no problem fitting in a mini sharpener (with receptacle for pencil shavings) and a small ruler, which are items that I had previously had difficulty fitting in cases. The material feels really strong and good quality.

In the main (largest) pocket, I have the aforementioned sharpener and ruler, 2 basic white erasers, a white-out pen, one ballpoint pen, two wooden pencils, two thin marker-type pens, and a highlighter. I believe this case could easily fit at least double that. Overall, I love it and am seriously considering buying another.
Uni Mitsubishi Propus 2 Double-Sided Highlighter - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Red Purple - UNI PUS-101TN.11
  I've been finding that,..., April 23, 2013
I've been finding that, with my first JetPens order, the colors of the inks in real life are more saturated than those on my screen. Not so with this highlighter - the color is pretty much an exact match. I like the tips on this one in particular - for some reason, they feel satisfyingly firm and almost "juicy". The 0.6mm tip is really quite thin and is easy to write with. All in all, would reorder.
Uni-ball Signo 207 Retractable Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Purple - SANFORD 1754846
  I really like this pen...., April 23, 2013
I really like this pen. I bought it mainly for the ink color, as espoused in the reviews. I do like that, and I find it mostly similar to the Uni-ball Vision Elite Rollerball in purple (which I also purchased). The writing is smooth and the ink does not bleed through in my experience. Drying times are pretty minimal too. I may actually prefer this to the rollerball because of that.
Pilot FriXion Colors Erasable Marker - Baby Pink - PILOT SFC-10M-BP
  I may be picking nits,..., April 23, 2013
I may be picking nits, but I was a teensy bit disappointed in this. The color appears a little more saturated than the photo would tell you, but I like that. What I'm disappointed in is the erasing ability. I've tried the US FriXion gel pens and found those to write and erase beautifully, but this must be a heavier ink or something because it, in my opinion, requires more force to erase, seems to "chafe" the paper a little, and does not always erase 100% (90%, maybe). One thing I noted is that the eraser is on the cap, which is obviously better for posting. However, I doubt I will reorder this specific product.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Gel Ink Pen - 0.3 mm - Cosmetic Colors - Cherry Pink - PILOT LH-20C3-CRP
  This is my first Hi-Tec-C,..., April 23, 2013
This is my first Hi-Tec-C, and will not be my last. It's a very nice color, and not scratchy despite the small size. I mean, I can feel the tip connecting, but it is smooth on the cheap paper I tried. The color is accurately represented by the cap and the end of the barrel. It is indeed a brighter, fruitier red/pink than I would have expected. With this pen, I really "get" what others say when they claim that the smaller tip size makes their writing better.
Monami Essenti Soft Highlighter Pen - Pastel Green - MONAMI ESSENTI SOFT GR
  I adore the color of..., April 23, 2013
I adore the color of this. The tip seems like standard highlighter fare, and in my experience it's pretty smooth and doesn't smear text easily. However, I think the color is slightly darker and significantly more saturated than what is displayed in the image here. It's a lovely minty green, and it is quite mild, but it's not AS mild as it's shown IMO. The photo looks like it has too much flash, honestly.
