Pentel White Shorty - 100W by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Pentel White Shorty - 100W I've personally struggled to get this marker to work well with the stock paint, and I've given multiple markers a large amount of time to break in and get better. I've never been able to get through my 4 letter tag without it going dry, even if I start the first letter with a droplet hanging off of the nib. If you look at the other reviews, I seem to be in the minority with this problem.

These really start to shine for me when you mix in some pilot ink or magic ink. It thins the ink out, giving it the flow it needs, while adding a bit to the opacity. Definitely a great marker after this little mod. You have to take the nib out, pour ink into the nib hole, then take a little needle or chopstick and depress the valve a few times to get it to flow back into the body. It usually takes a few times to achieve the desired color. If the marker runs empty, you can do this same process to refill it with whatever ink you want.

In stock form, I give it 3/5, but you can get it to 4/5 with this little mod.

Pentel Presto Pen by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Pentel Presto Pen Whiteout pens and whiteout style pens take some practice to get used to, but they have a unique character. They're small, convenient to carry and can handle a variety of surfaces. By the time you make it through one, you should have easily gotten the hang of it.

I still think the presto is the king of this category. It's got the nicest feeling body to me. It's the softest. I still really like the AP press n go, but they're not quite as nice in the hand. Those are a bit stiffer if you're into that.

For refilling, you need to pop the top straight out, it doesn't unscrew. I find a 1" wide, very thin metal object such as a ruler helps to pry it off. You can use pliers and yank it, but you'll damage it. Up to you if you don't mind scratches. Refilling the AP press n go is definitely more convenient.

Try mixing some magic ink or pilot ink into it if you are tired of it being white.

It'll work with a variety of refill paints, but you want to use something on the thicker side unless you want insane dripping. OTR soultip paint is fairly drippy, whereas rusto bucket paint is pretty thick so it writes more cleanly. Refills for metal head markers also work really well.

If you've never tried one, $3.50 is a small price to check out this classic item.

Unipaint Broad by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Unipaint Broad I've tried silver, black, blue, and red.

Classic marker with one of the best nibs of any marker ever made. There's a reason why it's been adopted by the smash KO, krink, and other brands.

The nib is softer than most, giving it a very unique feel and excellent flow. Streakiness is never an issue.

Try refilling it with other inks or mixing in magic ink or pilot ink for cool cross effects.

Silver is beautiful and shiny. One of the best silvers period.

black is very pure and has almost no tinge of other colors.

blue is intense, opaque, and has an almost electric quality to it in bright daylight.

red is actually fairly deep and slightly maroon, in contrast to the blue. also very opaque for a red.

The main flaw of this marker is the small amount of ink. It's only 1/3 full at most.

If you haven't tried one, you need to.

Sakura Extra Broad SG7 Marker by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Sakura Extra Broad SG7 Marker I've only tried the purple.

It's a big huge alcohol based ink marker with a plastic body. I wasn't impressed by the purple ink. It's not very dark, it's not fade resistant, and it's not even remotely opaque. It isn't streaky. The plastic body is nice in some ways as it won't get dented like a metal body, and if you drop it, it's very quiet.

I would like to try it in black someday, I have a feeling it's better. I may try filling it with OTR hard to buff or something, because I do think the body and nib are totally fine.

to sum it up: Decent marker, lame ink. If it were an empty marker, I'd rate it higher.

Pilot Super Color Mini-Marker by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Pilot Super Color Mini-Marker Just as good as the other pilot markers, but with a unique nib that's in between the pilot broad chisel and the super jumbo, and very close to the magic ink glass body nib. The nib material is a soft felt like the magic ink glass body or pilot super jumbo.

It's a great little pocket marker with a big nib compared to its body size. It's harder to open it to refill than the other pilot markers, but it is refillable.

Pilot Jumbo Marker by GASP23 - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/27/2019
Pilot Jumbo Marker This is a very simple marker, but very effective. It's been around for many years, so grab one and try a piece of graffiti history.

The black stripe version (the only one sold here) is xylene based and therefore smelly in enclosed spaces.

The tip is pretty soft, making it easy to write with. It is pretty durable, and can actually be flipped if it gets too beat up.

Black is fairly fade resistant, but the other colors are not, so they're better suited for indoors.

It has no mixing ball and no valve, so it is totally silent, If it's getting streaky, time to juice up the wadding inside. You need to refill it with a flowy ink. You can use the awesome stock pilot ink, but it's also compatible with magic ink or other xylene inks if you wanted to change it up. . Be careful though, as putting too much ink in will make it leak. If you can turn the body upside down (just the metal body and wadding, no tip) for 30 seconds with no dripping, you will be safe.

At $3.50, it's easily the best value for a jumbo marker that's ready to go right when you grab it.
