Not quite smear proof, but ok.
on August 19, 2016
So the dark pens cover up pencil marks. It's ok for pens, but I recommend using them to underline things. The lighter highlighters are fine, you can see pencil. My problem is with the yellow highlighter, the one I believe most people use the most. It smears like crazy. Some of the lighter ones smeared very little on pencil, but the yellow highlighter smeared on all the different writing tools I used. I tried it out on mechanical pencil, regular pencil, black pen, and gel pens. If they are going to advertise for smear guard, they really need to concentrate on the one that's used the most, that's why I docked an additional star. Will I return them? Nope. They are decent highlighters, though I think some of Sharpies other highlighters are better.
The highlighter bled just slightly through the other side of the paper, but it didn't get to paper behind it.
