6 swirl/multi-colored milky
I believe they are all pretty standard sized 1.0mm ball points, which all but the most eagle-eyed of us will NOT be able to tell apart from the .7-.8mm most other gel pens are. All of them write smoothly with minimal skipping and dragging, save for the pastel and swirl types. I have a long history with gel pens - suffice it to say I've been a fan since middle school, when Pentel Milkies were all the rage, and were unfortunately no stranger to skipping and dragging even then, and now I'm in college - and it comes as no surprise that the much maligned pastel or milky ink is still a source of frustration. If I had to assign a letter grade for consistency of ink flow, it would be thus:
glitter - A+
metallic - A+
bright - A
pastel - C
swirl - C
black - A
Additionally, the 6 color combos of the swirled pens are:
Pink Cap - blue/purple/pink
*Orange Cap - blue/purple/orange
*Yellow Cap - yellow/green/orange
Green Cap - yellow/green/blue
*Blue Cap - yellow/pink/blue
Purple Cap - purple/green/blue
The asterisk denotes those pens where the color change is immediately evident. The others may have multiple inks in the barrels, but the colors seem to blend into one disappointingly lackluster hue. (i.e. Pink cap = purple, green cap = green, purple cap = purple) Perhaps I just had a bad batch, but I've been using them for quite a few large-sized spiral drawings a la The Spiral Draw Book (Klutz). (I bought mine secondhand and the kit was missing the mini swirl gel pens that came with it.) It took about 5 or 6 of these mandalas for the 3 pens that show color gradation to start working, so I'm hoping the other 3 duds will show soon, too. Unfortunately, they are the WORST for spiral type art due to their notorious tendency to skip, causing unsightly imperfections. It figures the coolest pens with the greatest potential - did I mention swirls write on black paper, as do the pastels - would also prove the most difficult to work with.
All in all, Fiskars did a great job with this set. As for "big name" brands, none of that really matters; all of the pens are basically the same and likely produced in the same place (usually China ;p). Some of the best gel pens I've ever had were cheapies I've picked up at the dollar store: great ink flow and smooth writing are all you need. My only complaint is the with the milky gels; it seems that with all the advancements made with writing tools (i.e. waterproof pens that can write underwater, pressurized pens that are safe for airplane travel) you'd think there would be a pastel ink that shows up vibrantly on black paper without the need for retracing, writes smoothly from the jump, and doesn't give out and skip every inch or so!
Oh well, a girl can dream...
I've had these for a little over a month now and I really like them. I've used the crap out of them already. I would definitely purchase this product again. It's a great value for the amount of pens you get. The Gelly Roll pens are $1-$2 PER PEN!
So what I consider when buying anything with a lot of colors is, Are all of the colors the same? I was pretty surprised to find that there was a good variety of colors, and there was really no color repeating (albeit black).
I also really enjoy writing with these. However, I do notice that some lines are thicker and some are more sharp depending on the pen. The neon set seems to consistently produce sharper lines.
I think if you want 48 gel pens, these are really a good deal. They are well made and write nice. A few stuck a bit but after I got it running, it wrote well.
Explaining the photos:
First pic is just all the pens and the packaging. Second is the white neon pen. Third is all of the pens ink. Fourth is an example of the glitter (it's a bit subtle but you can see it in the light). Fifth is displaying the metal. Most of the colored aren't quite as metallic as the silver and gold, but realistically, purple isn't metallic. Sixth is all of the black pens. The swirl set doesn't have black. The sixth is the darkest greens in each set. Trying to show color variation.
About the product:
- Metallic set - my fave of all. Very smooth to write and doesn't skip, works on either white and black paper.
- Glitter set gives 3D effect, not as smooth as Metallic set but i like that it doesn't skip either.
- Swirl set - watery, skips a lot but they look very colorful in white paper and i love those that changes color while you write..
- Neon - watery, skips a lot and I was disappointed with white, it was really bad. I was even excited about it because I use white a lot, so I'm going to stick with Uniball for this.
Overall, I would recommend this product. You can't beat the price. You get a lot for your money and quality is good. I added pictures so check them out..
