Giveaway! Pentel Goodies & Pentel Hybrid Technica 0.4mm Doodles

Give Away Banner
A few months ago, I reviewed a set of Pentel Hybrid Technica gel pens - ranging from 0.3mm to 0.6mm in size. (There was also a giveaway for a set, did you miss that? Tsk tsk.)

Pentel recently sent me another set, which is superb, because I use these things up like crazy. Why, you ask?

As I explained in my conclusion last time:
While these are nice gel pens, the extra-fine and fine are too scratchy for everyday writing, for my tastes. They are great for sketching (even for those who cannot sketch, like me). On the other hand, the medium and bold are quite nice for writing. These gel pens do have the advantage of being archival safe and water-resistant, features that some other of my favorite gel pens lack. I do love that JetPens carries a nice array of colors of these, so that's does sway my opinion positively! These are decent pens, and they are cheaper than the Pilot Hi-Tec-C, and are the same price as the Uni-ball Signos. In addition, the Pentel Hybrid Technica pens are very sturdy compared to the micro tips of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C. I would suggest trying these out because of the price, colors, and ink properties.
For my style of writing, this still holds true. I have completely fallen in love with the 0.4mm, which seems like a nice middle ground for me - I can write with it and "sketch" (in other words, doodle) with it comfortably.

They work extremely well on sketch paper - even better than the Pilot Hi-Tec-C or the Uni-ball Signos that I have because they do not scratch the paper and collect fibers, thus clogging the tip.

Plus, multiple colors are available, which makes them even more desirable!

Price
JetPens - $2.50 

Overall
I still recommend these pens, especially if you like to doodle!!

Thank you to Pentel for sending these to me, and to JetPens for the generous sponsorship that allows me to buy more of these!

I really enjoy your doodles! In the 3rd photo, what is that "swooshy" looking pattern on the upper left side of your circle? I really like it.

Thank you so much! Honestly, I have no idea what the names of the patterns are. I sometimes look at patterns, sometimes I just make things up based on what I've seen before (so, from memory but often with themes of a pattern). I may have seen that before and just not realized it hehe.

50 years! That's awesome :D Tried, tested, and true :) I hope you entered the giveaway!

well, you're very welcome! you apparently have doodle superpowers then, because I usually can't figure the patterns out unless I see a "step by step" of how its done. I really enjoy your doodles because I always see something new. I really like that swooshy one, so I'm gonna have to "wing it" and figure it out. It just looks so cool.

Azizah Asgarali said...

LOL doodle superpowers! Hilarious. I can try and do a little walk through for that swooshy one - I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see if it actually works. It's kind of random though, as you can see! Anyway, I've made a note to try it out tomorrow so if it works out, I'll post it ASAP!
