I remember when I first started coming to AP and couldn't pick which mop I wanted, this was pretty much a god-send for me. Two years later I only have the Big Squeeze and Drip Mop Mini but ALL these markers served me well. Even if you don't like all of these markers its great to buy if you're a beginner and wanna find out what kind of marker you feel comfy with. I recommend this: AP 5 mop pack, Money Shot 8oz ink, and a OTR Hard 2 Buff, that'll give you a great overview of pretty much every kind of marker there is and you can figure out what you like. If you want you can throw some OTR ink in there too, I recommend silver. I only say this because I don't like Money Shot in my Toxic Shocker or Sqeezy-E. Stay up!

Please ignore my last review of this marker, I clearly mistook this one for another. The Cold Sweat marker has the potential to surpass the Hard 2 Buff, but falls through because it streaks. Thats it. Add some Coversall and you're flossin'. 5/5 for great marker with one problem with an easy fix. If you can't fix it get the OTR Hard 2 Buff.
Buy the Hard 2 Buff. I say this because the Stainless is essentially the same marker (except with that cool metallic effect) but it tends to streak unless you add some Coversall (or its equivalent to toughen the formula). It comes with a T nib, of which I am not a fan. Overall its a great reliable marker, plenty of ink, durable, etc. 4/5 for being a great marker, great price, but it streaks so add some stuff to enhance the formula. Hell, if you have some you can even add some OTR Hard 2 Buff ink
This marker holds a special place in my heart as the first marker I ever owned so it gets a 5/5 in my life. That being said (and a potential bias being established) on to the real review. The ink is indeed hard to buff, but not very. The proper term would be hard-ER to buff, however it is a very deep black with no brown or purple tint. It's nib is very durable and writes with no streaks once its worn down a little. When I replace nibs I outright rub it down on brick to soften it. It comes mostly filled and holds tons of ink. I use some Coversall to enhance the formula of an already decent ink with a superb one, that way I get plenty out of my Coversall and H2B. It has the famous valve system we all love, and durability for days. This marker was made to last. I disagree with the idea that the OTR Stainless is superior simply because unless I add some coverall it streaks a lot and the T nib is harder to soften. 5/5 for amazing performance for only 7 bucks.
I prefer this to the Steel Blitz marker because it comes filled with more, but like the Steel Blitz this is a metal nib Mop/Pen hybrid of Chthulhu like proportions. The whole point of these is that the paint is some weird awesome stuff that won't buff (the ink was clearly trained as a Spetsnaz) and the metal nib lets you write on anything that isn't stupidly bumpy. You can write on bricks, and cement, and even roofing shingles (as seen in an Art Primo video). The nib is like a ballpoint pen, a small ball rotates and writes like a pen, because of this you need to hold the marker at an angle that takes some getting used to. The colors are classic bright Krink, and I agree completely with another reviewer who said to use Smash Ink as a refill. Definitely worth the money if you're willing to refill them, the nibs last a minute and can take some abuse. If you have some spare Smash lying around you can make one of these on the cheap by buying an Art Primo 2oz mop and a Steel Nib, you wont even be able to tell the difference. 5/5 for not having anything wrong with it

This is the Sharpie Magnum's large testicled grandfather. It has a huge chisel nib and deep permanent ink. The black is the best, and frankly don't bother with the other ones, they're irrelevant. Its a classic marker that lives up to its history every day, get one and be happy. 5/5 for the classics and for Tupac not being dead
