To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It is nice to see Sharpie try out new things, including these gel pens. However I would strongly recommend contiuing with the established
There are several reasons for this recommendations: 1) They don't have a good color indicator. There is a small ring near their grip, but it is on the wrong side. When pens are placed into a holder, it is not possible to see which one is which 2) Speaking of the grip, it could be better. It gets the job done, but barely okay 3) Pilot writes a tad bit smoother than the Sharpie 4) finally the plastic quality has room for improvement.
Overall they do work okay. But there are better alternatives.
Gel pens can be a delight to use, I usually love them, but they can also have problems.
The text you write with these pens did dry quickly, that's a big plus for any gel pen. However, I found that the ink was difficult to get started when first using the pens. The ink also clotted multiple times when using it which made it difficult to write in a steady way.
That's deeply disappointing from Sharpie whose products I normally love and use a lot of.
Its hard to write a honest review on these pens. Some of them worked and wrote beautifully while others would hardly write at all. the ones that did work were very smooth, comfortable to hold and the ink dried quickly.
I wanted to love these, but the pens do not write smoothly and the color is not the rich gel that I hoped for. The color "skips" and it is not consistent. I thought they would be similar to Pentel/Energel gel pens, but they fall short.
