I wasn't really expecting to be wowed by these.. I love fineliner pens, which can get pretty pricey. So when I saw these for $9.99 I didn't think they were gonna be that great. But for the price, you can't loose. Do yourself a favor, GET THESE PENS! Especially if you like to journal or do adult coloring books. These are SO vibrant and smooth to write with. I am so happy with these.
