I have been using G-Tec...
, September 3, 2008
I have been using G-Tec C4 pens and Pilot (Precise) P-500's and finding the
Hi-Tec-C was great fortune. I have seen some say that the Hi-Tec is the G-Tec
with a different name but this is far from true. The ink in the Hi-Tec is far
less soluble than that used in the G-Tec and Precise pens (I think the Precise
is the American version of the G-Tec as the ink behaves very similarly).
This isn't a knock on the G-Tec or Precise pens, as there are uses for smudging
ink. If you would like to wash sketches a bit - the G-Tec and Precise pens are
for you - but not the Hi-Tec.
The Hi-Tec is awesome for a fine line that won't smear or smudge. It also works
great in Moleskine Sketchbooks and Cahiers. I got both the 0.3mm and 0.25mm
Hi-Tec pens and the 0.25mm is ludicrously fine.
