This is my favourite drawing pen. I like it so much better than the Micron. The
tip is a lot more sturdy, and I've been using it daily for weeks. I'm
heavy-handed too, which usually causes problems when I use felt tip pens. The
Uni pin pens I've used through the years never get tossed because of a bent,
split, or short tip; these always run out of ink, and it's usually after three
months give or take. The ink is a nice dark black, very waterproof, and my
sketches from four years ago haven't faded or anything. I'd keep buying these
forever if possible!
After using the Alpha gel tints for a while, my hands have been pretty
comfortable, but I still decided to buy the slim version because of how nice it
looked. The glossy purple, metal accents, and creamy grip convinced me. It's not
my favourite pencil, or even one I use pretty regularly. I guess I just don't
like how it feels when I write with it, even though the grip's not hard. It
works fine and everything, but I just never took a liking to it.
This was my first, and at the moment, only 0.3 pencil. I'd been curious about
them for some time, and thought why not try one out and I'm glad I did. I've
been using it with Uni Nano-Dia B grade lead, and it's been nice to write with.
The lead has never broken once, and that's coming from someone who's been called
heavy-handed many times. I didn't buy it because of the cooling effect it's
supposed to have. But if that's the reason why I did, it would only get three
stars from me because I don't notice any difference between the AirBlanc and a
regular pencil. My hands still get sweaty when I use it. But it works good as a
It's definitely not pretty or girly if that's what you're after, but despite the
fact that it's not a looker, I still find myself using it over some of the
fancier pencils in my pouch. It's very comfortable to write with over long
periods of time. I used it to write a two page essay and my hand didn't cramp or
get tired. The side click is pretty useful if you don't want to change your grip
and go through the trouble of finding the angle you were writing at. The colour
is a nice garnet red, but I wish I'd gotten it in blue.
I happened upon this pencil a while back, but it got stolen in school, along
with the rest of my pencil case. For the short while I had it, I really liked
it. It's got a good weight to it, and the grip isn't too wide for me. The bright
colours are what caught my eye, and they look really stunning in person. The
shaker mech works well, and I love the retractable tip because it lets you store
it wherever you want. It's a great pencil, worthy of addition to anyone's
I used to use these in school a long time ago, and they are one of my least
favourite erasers to work with. It's one of the hardest kinds, and it leaves
ugly smudges on the paper instead of erasing things completely. I don't know how
in the world someone erased an entire page of work leaving no marks at all. I
really like the white Pentel hi-polymer erasers you can get at Staples or Office
Max in the US. They erase so much more cleanly than the Mars plastic.
This is my absolute favourite pink pen---the shade is one-of-a-kind, closer to
red than pink but still very bright. The ink is smooth, and lasts down to the
very last drop without any skippage whatsoever.
I bought these in blue, green, pink, orange, and this color, and they're pretty
vivid and bright. They write well, 'juicy' like someone said, and it's nice to
write with them. But the tips of the 0.6 side dent significantly after writing
only a phrase or two.
If I could give these pens all five stars I would, but they have a major flaw
that I can't ignore: the tips dent way too easily. I'll admit that I write with
quite a bit of pressure, but still, I dropped one once when I was using it and
the tip split in two. I was so mad! Another time, I used it to write only half a
page and the tip got shorter and slanted because of the angle I was writing at
with it. The only real way to solve this problem would be to write with as
little an angle as possible, and that's hard. I bought these when I was little,
but I really regret replacing them!
