Paper Mate Liquid Flair XFine Point Marker

The Paper Mate Liquid Flair XFine Point Marker certainly announced itself to me with it's unique benzene-ring like pattern on the barrel. Takes me back to my organic chemistry days, so I thought I'd try it out.

The Liquid Flair features a clear plastic point guard inside the cap that protects the felt tip from damage, and quick-drying, water-based ink that really doesn't bleed through paper. The XFine point isn't quite as fine as they advertise, certainly not like a Zebra Sarasa Stick pen. The black ink does flow smoothly and evenly, a feature they promote in their advertising, and it is quick-drying. It's also the glossiest black ink I've ever seen, and I love writing with this pen.

You can buy it in basic black, or pick up one of the other colors: blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, and turquoise.
