I got excited to have the legendary Sharpie ink in a gel pen format.
However, every pen in the pack I purchased gets stuck every now and then. I have traced this to the ink cartridge getting stuck at full extension, and the compound spring doesn't have enough force to release it. Oddly, pushing on the tip will not free it. Taking it apart has been the only way to fix them.
It's really annoying having to take a pen apart once or twice a day. I'd say its basically a catastrophic design flaw. Looks like my daily driver Pilot G-2s will not be replaced by these until they manage to improve the reliability of the mechanism.
Initially blurry impressive. Nice vibrant deep purple line, rich. But after 1-2 weeks of use, they leak. They ooze inside and the exposed tip becomes covered in ink, which smears w first use of the day, gets on fingers, ruined one pocket. Disappointed , was expecting a SHARPIE level of premium product, but now having to decide to discard the rest of the box. No one like pens that leak and ooze.
I'm very disappointed with these pens. Normally I'm a huge Sharpie fan. The ink either runs out or dries out quickly. Which makes it not a great deal. The Color of the ink is a beautiful purple and when you first start to use the pen it flows easy and nice. I'm not buying these again and I don't recommend unless you are going to use all the pens straight away in a huge group for a one time project.
These pens are so awesome, they are everything you would want in a gel pen. I've had a few issues with them. 1. They tend to explode at times and leak every where. Recommend not to carry in your favorite pants. 2. If you over tighten they tend to not secure properly. 3. Sometimes it feels like you are running out of gel. You get that write, don't write thing going on. Other then that i like them when they are working. Hope this helps
I loved the black sharpie S-gel so much I decided to get a multi-color pack as I take a lot of notes for my job and and I really like the way they write. However, right off the bat the blue pen didn't work. The tip was stuck partly in the pen, and it was impossible to get a clean line (though I tried). I had to reluctantly throw it away without much use. Now one month later (without as much use as the black pens), the green pen seems to be running out of ink. This might've just been a bad batch, but I doubt I'll order them again.
The picture shows 2 black, blue, and red ink pens and 1 purple and green. The pens I received was 4 black ink pens, 1 blue, red, purple and green. It wasn't that big of a deal since black ink is what I use more often but after opening up the package I noticed that the green band of the green pen was cracked and so I'll be making a return.
I love these pens and the way they write. They glide across the paper with style and grace. However, they do not last long at all. Some of these pens run out within minutes of opening them. It is not a gradual run out either. They just end.
