  I love the hi-tec-c coleto..., August 19, 2012
I love the hi-tec-c coleto line - no other multi pen (that I have found) offers the option of being able to have as many pencil or eraser components as you can fit in the pen body (most manufacturers only accommodate one pencil per pen body). I had previously purchased the "Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto Me 4 Color Multi Pen Body Component - Soft Green" from jetpens and found it to be too lightweight for my taste (though exactly as advertised). I decided to purchase this pen in hopes that it would be a happy medium between the weight/quality offered other multis (like the Dr. Grip 4+1 multi sold on this site) and the versatility offered by the hi-tec-c coleto line. This expectation did not seem unreasonable, as the listed shipping weight for this pen (0.85 oz) fell well in between the listed weights for the Coleto Me (0.30 oz) and the Dr. Grip multi (1.4 oz). Additionally, the price of this pen was identical to the Dr. Grip multi and double that of the Coleto Me. However, the pen I received was nearly identical in weight and quality to the Coleto Me (and packaged identically). To make sure that my qualitative assessment of the pen was fair, I weighed all three pens (without any components) on a highly-accurate lab scale, and I found that, as I had suspected, the weight of this pen body (0.39 oz) was barely any larger than the Coleto Me (0.32 oz) and much lighter than the Dr. Grip multi (0.83 oz). I am not sure if this is just a fluke, but if not then I find the listed shipping weight to be very deceptive and the price charged for this pen to be ridiculously high. This type of false advertising is not what I have come to expect from jetpens after years of quality service and products. Save yourself some money and disappointment and purchase the Coleto Me instead.
