At first I really loved these pens. Erasable gel ink -- this is amazing. My biggest issue is that so far of these 7 in the package 1 was not usable when it arrived. On 3 of the pens the ink dried over the writing tip and became unusable. Ink pens full of ink and unusable = trash. I tried so many things to include using the eraser tip of another pen to help loosen the ball. I still love the remaining ones. But will really consider before I buy again.
