Pilot FriXion Color Pencil-Like: Aquamarine 0.7 mm
This pen was on my first order at JetPens. I've had it for about a month and I haven't reviewed almost anything from there! So to start off...
(The pen's a lot more blue than in the picture. Sorry the quality's bad.)
The Color Pencil-Like line of FriXions was supposed to resemble a wooden pencil with erasable ink. Unlike the other FriXions, Pilot got it right and put the eraser on the cap instead of the butt of the pen. The body of the pen is supposed to resemble a wooden pencil.
I'm very fond of the dark, almost blue-black aquamarine ink. The ink is much richer and darker than the original FriXions, not to mention it glides on the page. It erases easily and cleanly. In my opinion, this is a huge improvement from the original FriXions. All in all, these pens are great for note-taking. In fact, this pen is part of my current 'A-Team'! =D
So to recap...
Pros: Much better than the original FriXions
-Rich, dark ink
-Eraser's on the right end of the pen for once!
Cons: Takes a few seconds for the ink to dry
Overall, I give this pen a 9.6/10/!
