Quite simple. If you have the skills and/or the "vision", these pens can do a lot of good work for you. They work great and give you exactly what you want from them. Freestyle calligraphic hot chisel/brush tip action! (Also: good for sign painting, the brush tip ones, if you are using ink or thin paint/pigmented ink.)

This is the EXACT same body/nib as a Krylon paint pen. Now, those pens suck because the paint in them was not properly developed for the marker, but if you take this empty one and fill it with an INK, it works great. I like to use PILOT with a tiny bit of metallic paint, (smash silver, otr silver etc.) Then you get a nice deep black with a 'sparkly'/'glittery' sheen to it that catches the eye in the sun. The best way to fill em is to slip a razor into the seam and twist it to pop the spring housing out. (ps if you do mix ink with a touch of paint, you may wanna throw a BB in there or something to mix it up, otherwise straight ink needs no mixer.)
This is not "step Up" from the superflow/fresh marker. The super fresh is a great marker if you know how to use it. Use sandpaper to make one side of the nib flat/a little frayed, then, before you put the nib in, pack a little bit of cotton down in there so it gives the nib a "lift". Then just fill it from the bottom and you have a well flowing marker with a very useful tip mod. (Ultimately the marker would be best if the nib was longer, but this is how you compensate.) The bottom cap method of filling is awesome, it's how all markers should be.
