Love these pens!
Comments about Pentel Arts Hybrid Technica Pens:
I love these pens! Even on the very narrow ones the ink flows easily. which makes them a pleasure to use. I had picked one up at a college bookstore a few months ago and can't find them locally so I was very glad to find that Dick Blick carries them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Other reviewers seem crazed about these pens, but I find them OK, nothing special. I bought the mixed pack because it was on sale, and find the 03 and 04 virtually unusable... the points on them are so sharp that the drag as you move across the paper is scratchy and unpleasant. The 05 and 06 are... pens, what can I say? I like the 08. But in all of them, the ink seems dull and off-color, I prefer a bright black-black. I would not go out of my way to buy these pens again. (I use them for note-taking, general jotting, sketching, and jewelry design work.)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use these pens for recording ancestry information on tiny lines on charts. Love the micro sizes for this. Recommend highly!!

I write and draw with these pens. I buy a lot because I go through them so quickly. I use the 03 because I love how thin they write.

I usually order a dozen at a time. My wife uses them for her journaling and swears by them. They write smooth and don't bleed on her journal pages.
Love the pens and the service

I use these primarily for sketching and drawing. Ink flows well and I've never had trouble with skipping. Even when I've had trouble with other pens drawing over pencils, these have still worked pretty well.

not what i expected
from st louis, mo
I tried these instead of the faber-castell pens I've been using...they didn't do the job for me at all...they might be good for sketching, or writing letters, but if it involves a straight edge, they stink...
Merchant response: We're sorry that these pens aren't working well for the use you intended. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up to see if we can assist with a return or exchange.

same as they ever were
I've been using prismacolor markers in designing upholstered furniture for over 20 years...they have always been consistent, reliable and available. if the price didn't go up every 3 months, I probably would've given them 5 stars!

Great feel, good for sketching
from Dallas, TX
My mom bought a set as a part of her pen obsession while she was going through law school. For one reason or another, I use these pens to draw trucks, cars, vending machine monsters... They feel better than regular pens, they're archival (always a plus), and because they don't have a felt tip, I don't have to worry about breaking the nib - only ripping the paper. I wouldn't not use this for any "official" line work however because of the roller tip, but they are really nice for stippling.Because of the roller, if you press too hard, you can see a little white space in the middle of your line, although this could be utilized for aesthetic. Overall, I'd keep a few on hand.

I forgot to redo the crosshatching on the 03 pen.
