I was not impressed with...

I was not impressed with the quality of these at all. I bought these because I
have always used the Sakura Pigma Micron to do line work, the problem with these
is they could run dry (rarely) and if they ever fall off the table chances are
it's going to land on the tip and render the pen unusable. I was open to try a
new system with these pens. The ink flow is unreliable, at least two of the pens
from the pack behave erratically (the number 002 and the 005). Whereas with the
Microns there's rarely need to press down on the paper for the line to come out
smooth and clean, with these pens I find that if I don't press down hard hardly
any ink will flow at all, which may cause for one or two botched lines. I didn't
give it 1 start because at least the 1.0 mm pen works properly and the line is
smooth, I will recommend this one pen alone.
Personally I feel that 2 pens not working correctly out of the whole pack makes
the whole Pack unreliable. When selling a whole pack of pens, there should be
some sort of guarantee that they will all work properly.
At least the little ziplock bag that they come in is high quality and good....
but 15 dollars for a little ziplock bag and one good working pen? Better stick
to the Microns.
