Ordered one of these from AP and then a different company that had given me a refund for botching my order accidentally shipped me THREE MORE.
It's a good marker. You may as well carry something that makes you feel sexy and these are sexy as f*ck. They look good on your design desk and they look good poking out the top of the chest pocket of your plaid shirt you f*cking scenester. Ladies and gents both love 'em, so if bae knows you do graff give them one of these and they'll be yours for a fortnight. Get up with the colours and stay up with the bleed thru versions, jj buff paint is so thick these days that nothing is buffproof (at least in my town).
But seriously they start nice and crisp and break in painlessly, and once they're broken in they get a really nice brush-like quality. You'll feel like Pablo Picasso.
Haven't refilled any of mine yet, but when I do I'm certainly gonna reseal it with some plumbers tape on the threads. It's like electrical tape but with a better seal and less gunk.
BTW the bleed through versions are one of the few Xylene based markers left on the market as far as I know. So dope. A chemical from Mars so your tags end up OUTTA THIS WORLD!
Some of these reviews nail it, but some of these folks are just talking to be talking. If you haven't tried THIS ONE before, why are you reviewing it? /rant
Anyways, I was traveling last weekend and was in a small town for a couple days. This place had hardly any tagging going on beyond some whiteout tags (does every town in North America have a "Joker"?) so I had a few drinks and set out my first night in town. This thing is so huge that I overheard people talking about it the next day as I cured my hangover with a brunch beverage.
Thank you AP!
Oh btw get five or ten extra nibs and see if you can beat my record of 2/3 empty in one night. First person to empty and refill in an evening gets a free nib.
Also; you will beat on these nibs so hard unless you only tag glass AND you have dope @$$ pressure control AND slowwww @$$ tag speed. Get the extra nibs. WORTH IT!
It's sick and wonderful and a dope @$$ classic for a reason, but the cap on mine got stuck so many times that the plastic collar that transitions from the body to the nib area broke off inside the cap yesterday as I was pulling the lid off.
Luckily I bought two because it's so dope. Needless to say I'll be applying some lubricant to the inside of the cap of the next one.
Also it's cute as hell. Give one to your sweetheart and they'll give you... ;)
