Review: Sharpie Pen Medium

Sharpie Pen

As the poet Tom Petty once said "Waiting is the hardest part", and it seems like I had to wait forever for the Sharpie Pen in medium to show up on my local store shelves.  I noticed them at Wal-Mart a month or so ago, and of course I couldn't help myself in picking up a few 2-packs.

After reviewing the original Sharpie Pen, the Sharpie Pen RT, and the Sharpie Pen Grip, I have come to a pretty clear pecking order in which one I prefer.  The original Sharpie pen is still my personal favorite.  I reach for the Grip on occasion, but I always find myself going back to the original.  I think it is the visual aspect of the long needle tip that I like so much.  The RT isn't in the conversation at all.  In fact, I think I have given most of them away.  I never could get past some of the funky barrel design aspects, but most importantly, the tips of the RT seem to dry out extremely fast.

The medium tip has been a real pleasure to write with so far.  While I prefer the finer line of the original, the medium lays down a beautiful dark line.  The tip is very firm also, which I like a lot.  It reminds me of some of the larger tipped Sakura Pigma Microns.

Have you had a chance to use all of the new Sharpie Pen products yet?  Which one do you prefer?
