FriXion is Different From Other Erasable Pens
The technology used in FriXion erasable gel ink pens has been in the making for more than 30 years. Vibrant Autumn leaves inspired a Pilot researcher to capture the same dynamic color change in a test tube. A special formulation that would vividly change color at different temperatures was developed. The unique color-changing technology was initially used to create children's toys. Several years later, another Pilot researcher modified the formulation to create disappearing ink—and FriXion erasable gel ink pens were born!

Top Customer Reviews
These pens are really a dream come true. Just don't write something you want to keep or sign a check with them!
-- Great color selection.
-- The pens write smoothly without skipping, especially once they're "warmed up."
-- The ink erases thoroughly (and I've never had problems with it tearing paper.
-- There are refills available.
-- The ink is heat sensitive, so it is not recommended for important documents or those that will be exposed to extreme temperatures.
-- The ink runs out fairly quickly, but then again, it actually feels great to use up a pen refill (as opposed to all those partially used pens all over my house and classroom).
-- The pen has a design flaw in that the eraser is on the end of the pen. Since this is where the cap is stored when the pen is being used, the cap has to be removed to access the eraser.
(+) Smooth writing
(+) Easy to erase
(+) Perfect for note taking and planner addicts
(+) Does not bleed through paper
(-) Smudges. (Needs to wait few minutes to allow to dry
(-) Not good for writing on glossy paper
(-) Smudges when using a highlighting marker
My overall opinion:
This is still my favorite pen regardless of the cons. I love writing with pen in my planner, but unfortunately, plans changes and typos occur...so knowing that I can easily erase my mistakes puts me to ease. Even though it erases, if you are heavy handed and write hard it will still leave an imprint of your writing and a slight residue. The black ink is not entirely opaque black in compared to other black pens that are not erasable (see photo for comparison). It's more of a blackish-gray ink. But it's not a deal breaker for me.
My not-so-scientific scientific experiment:
For my experiment I used Frixon Point 04 in purple, blue, pink, and green (darkest color to lightest).
On the left side of the paper, I used a hair dryer to make the ink disappear (happened within seconds).
On the left side of the paper, I erased using the frixion nub.
I then placed the sheet of paper in the freezer.
heat exposed side: Purple came back the best, followed by blue and pink (tie), and green did terrible. Purple looked almost pre-heat-exposure quality while blue and pink were easily readable. Green was visible, but very hard to make out. Conclusion: freezer method works great for dark colors for accidental heat exposure. Light colors did terrible.
nub frixion side: Not so good. If you use the nub and (for some reason) want it back, you will get something from the darker colors, but it will be light. I can just barely make out the light colors, but perhaps a longer freezer exposure will help.
CONCLUSION: if you lose something via accidental heat exposure or frixion nub error, you can likely retrieve it via placing in freezer for a few minutes (though you'll have to squint harder on the lighter colors).
I would also note that once the paper returned to room-temperature after removal from the freezer, the colors DID NOT fade.
I love the pens. I agree with other reviews, that the ink runs out fast and the nub should be at the end of the pen cap. I get annoyed having to remove the cap every time I want to erase. You shouldn't use the pens for legal documents (since they are erasable and you would never complete a legal document in pencil) or documents you submit to someone else (you don't know that THEY won't accidentally subject the document to heat, thereby rendering the page blank, and they won't know to stick the darn thing in the freezer).
