|definitely a classic but has its kinks.
the paint is verryy runny and is not thick or high coverage so you're going to want to stick to smooth surfaces that aren't going to eat it as much. think road signs, smooth metal, electric boxes, doors, etc, thats where this thing will shine for you. porous surfaces like rust, for example, will just suck the paint right up.
this marker doesn't seem like it at first but by god is it messy!! it will get its load all over you and itself (haha) within your first day of using it especially if you write aggressively and depress the valve while writing. the cap will get sticky and if you let it, very stuck. i had to use pliers one time to twist the thing off.
one of my biggest issues with this marker is how inconsistent it is flowwise, sometimes it will streak, and then youll depress the nib thinking its not juiced enough and it will just go everywhere. its as if the nib isnt doing a very good job of absorbing the paint, the paint seems to flow PAST the nib when you juice it. .
if you let it sit upright for a few days the paint is so runny that it will seep OUT of the nib back into the marker body, and yes, im shaking it properly. but hey, its a classic. you HAVE to use it.
