mini Pilot Hi-Tec-C Review

After winning Gourmet Pens' Pelle journal giveaway recently, she kindly enclosed some additional gifts, 2 Pilot Hi-Tec-C's (in mauve and turquoise).  I had received them while i was busy trying to get last minute details for the wedding ready and did not have time to play with the pens-- well i also sorta accidentally misplaced them in a purse pocket...


They did go on the cruise with me and I am glad to say they came back with me from the cruise.  The 2 pens i received were both 0.3mm points and I love my uber fine tipped pens so this was a very appropriate sized tip for me to enjoy.  After writing with them for a bit, I am happy to report that they rank among some of my favorite gel tipped pens.  They are smooth writers, very vibrant colors are available and have almost no skipping.  With such fine tipped pens usually with the rollerball in these pens have skipping issues once in a while, but they have pretty consistent lines when you write with them.  I did have a bit of skipping with the mauve pen (though I couldn't always replicate it)  i tried a bunch of different things, I guess the roller ball just got stuck.  Other than that they were both very lovely to use-- great colors, very thin points which i ecstatically love :)  to the point where for a goodbye gift for one of the Clinical Fellows that i've worked closely with, i purchased 2 purple Hi-tec-C's in 0.4mm to give to her.

Oh yaay! I'm glad you like them :) Bummer about the skipping, mine never skip, but perhaps the warmer weather has something to do with it - liquefying the ink more or something. You are so funny "accidentally misplaced them in a purse pocket" hahahahah
