Zebra Color Flight 0.3 Mechanical Pencil - 0.3 mm - Sky Blue - ZEBRA MAS53-SBL
  I have bought several..., June 8, 2014
I have bought several 0.3 lead mechanical and drafting pencils from a wide range of prices. For me, this has been the best. It writes smoothly. There is no "wiggling". Frequently, I found that tips of mechanical/drafting pencils loosen up at the tip (hope that makes sense) therefore needing to be tightened every once in a while depending on usage. Best part, minimal breakage. I write hard and thus expect some breakage. Compared to all my other mechanical and drafting pencils, including ones of larger lead size, this pencil has had the least. It's unbelievable. The reasonable price is the icing on the cake.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.3 mm - Black - PILOT LHM-15C3-B
  Too scratchy, loud and..., February 12, 2014
Too scratchy, loud and not black enough.

I must have gotten a bad product. I understand that fine point will be scratchy. But my black, Hi-Tec Maica, 0.3 is way too scratchy. It's loud. Worse, the black is not dark enough. It might be ok for those who have small hand writing or need to write small on notecards and stuff.
Uni-ball Signo UM-100 Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Light Blue - UNI UM100.48
  Unless I got a bad product,..., November 29, 2013
Unless I got a bad product, the light blue is not that pretty. The picture is way prettier. If you are familiar with the Pilot Hi-tec light blue, the color is identical. Just bleh. I have a Pilot Juicy in Aqua-Blue, which I love and looks similar to the pic above.

I have several "light blues" from Pilot (different pen types) and now this Uni-ball.I wish I could give my other light blue pens away to the previous reviewers.
Uni-ball Signo UM-100 Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Fluorescent Pink - UNI UM100K.13

Great pink! It's a bright pink and truly fluorescent - super bright. Most fluorescent pinks tend to be less fluorescent, less bright. If I understand the reviewer above, the ink is pretty opaque. I initially had the concern that the color would not be rich enough therefore my extra firm grip would be seen. It hasn't happened to me yet. I love it.
Pilot Juice Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Aqua Blue - PILOT LJU-10UF-AL

The Aqua Blue is gorgeous. I love the color. It's just a little scratchy when I write.
Uni Mitsubishi Propus 2 Double-Sided Highlighter - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Orange - UNI PUS101TN.4
  Super bright orange -..., March 11, 2013
Super bright orange - NEON orange, which is great for highlighting text. I love orange. Too often I find that other orange highlighters make my text look dingier. The images used do not do it justice. It's brighter and better.
Zebra Fullst Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Light Blue - ZEBRA MA72-LB
  The tip of my pencil..., January 23, 2013
The tip of my pencil does not grip the lead very well. Therefore, when I apply pressure as I write, some of the lead is pushed back into the pencil. It always feels like I need to re-click all the time. I may have a defect. But I am NOT a fan of the shaker pencils. I wish JenPens would have less shaker pencils in their assortment.
Zebra Tect Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - Light Green Body - ZEBRA MA43-LG
  Only the greatest mechanical..., September 20, 2012
Only the greatest mechanical pencil to have survived my hands... I have broken the tips of most mechanical pencils due to hand pressure. I can't help it.

I am not sure what the difference is between a mechanical pencil and drafting pencil. After going though several mechanical pencils, I thought I would try the drafting category. I started out with a less expensive version, the Zebra tech in 0.5, light green. It has been over 6 months and we are very happy. It's my "go to" pencil for exams and note taking. I am testing another drafting pencil for note taking, a 0.3. I keep going back to this one.
