Color me very very surprised by this one - in a good way of course. The Pentel Hybrid Technica is a pen I have used before with varying degrees of success, but this fluorescent orange model really impressed me. The way the ink performs on the paper is great. The gel ink is neat and clean, making for some impressive lines, and the ink color is FLUORESCENT ORANGE!
Now, there are plenty of other bright ink pens that may works as well as this pen (there is a Uni-Ball Signo DX in pink that comes to mind), but this Pentel is just downright fun to use. I don't know that I would use it for strictly note taking, but as a highlighter alternative, it is just about perfect. I am an underliner as opposed to a highlighter anyway, so this pen fits my needs. In fact, this pen is part of the "Go Team" that I carry with me in my main pen case.
Fluorescent pink and yellow will be on their way from JetPens shortly.
