Review: Zebra Pticolon 0.8mm

I wrote the whole review by hand this time. Just because. Let me know if you'd like me to transcribe it, I don't know how readable my handwriting is :)

Closeup of the different colors. The fumes were getting to me at this point. Also, the green apple is as obnoxiously fluorescent as the orange. Bring-out-the-glowsticks bright! If only they glowed in the dark. Wait, do they glow in the dark? *tests* ...nope, apparently they only "glow" in daylight. I wonder, are they UV-reactive? Must find a way to test that sometime.

Super-duper closeup so you can see what annoyed me about the ink. See how there's white in the middle? Yeah. That annoys me. I used smooth notebook paper, which usually works very well with all my gel pens. But not these, nope. Scratchy and streaky.

In conclusion, they're ok novelty pens. I would not buy them again, though. I mostly use my pens to write with, and these made my hand crampy. At least they look very good in their little case, which is probably where they will spend most of their time.

Smell you later!
(oh come on, I had to. Resistance was futile! The fumes, I blame the fumes.)

I'm sure if you squint just right, you can see the orange glow outside your window ;)
