    Transparent barrel gives a clear view of ink levels

    • Crystal-clear barrel reveals ink supply.  Clear hexagon-shaped barrel lets you know exactly how much ink you have — and it's roll-proof, too!
    • 1.0 mm point for rich color, serious definition.  Medium-sized point writes loud and clear…without extra pressure on your part.
    • High-quality ink provides smooth, consistent strokes.  Ink won't skip, smear or clog — providing sharp, legible lines with every use.
    • Ventilated safety cap won't dry out ink.  Ventilated cap meets international safety standards (ISO 11540) and ensures you don't waste any ink.
    • Nonrefillable. 
    • Easy-Glide System delivers smooth writing performance.  Available on black, blue, red and green ink pens only.
    • Available in black, blue, red, green, pink, purple, lime green and turquoise ink.  No color choice.

    Rated 4.4 out of 5�by 15 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Pretty Cool My granddaughter and I love these. Nice assortment of colors, and I love that they're bold as well. Bold is better when using a variety of colors in a project. They write smoothly and have a nice thick line. Each pen has a little bit of plastic goo that you need to remove before use. This probably keeps the ones I haven't used yet fresh. October 12, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Love these! I love super bold pens & these are awesome! Writes smooth & super bold! Plus I got them on sale! August 19, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Nice Color Selection This pack has many different color choices that really are good when using in the classroom to correct papers for students. Assign the color to specific colors to each student and I can see the student who commented on each persons paper. Hope that they are as good as the previous years that I have purchased.

    Rated 5 out of 5�by The best 'bang for your buck' I absolutely love this product! The quality and quantity is the best. I'm in high school, so when my teachers allow me to correct my graded work, it's easier for them to know what I corrected because there are so many colors to choose from. August 17, 2015
