Review - Pilot FriXion Erasable Pens

I constantly take notes for my classes and find my papers full of black or blue write-outs. Its pretty messy sometimes. I use a tape recorder to tape lectures, but I still find myself writing them out afterwords, as I'm a very visual person. I don't like using pencils so I take notes with pen but find my note papers messy by crossing out things that I would be otherwise be able to erase with a pencil.

Erasable Pens are nothing new but Pilot's FriXion Ball Erasable Pens are quite fun! I received a pack including one of each color; black, red and blue. They are quite thick but fit well in my hand. It also has a rubber grip and they come with fun designs. These fine-tip gel pens are erasable; the rubber tip on the bottom of the pen creates heat by friction which erases the thermo-sensitive ink.

I use these pens for note taking, its advised to not use them for any sort of legal documents. The FriXion pens erase very smoothly, they don't rip my paper when I erase things as some previous brands have done. I like them. I also did some research on these pens and found some fun information. Apparently, since the ink is thermo-sensitive, if you write on a paper and pass a flame from a lighter (or use a hair dryer) on the ink, it disappears. I tried it :) You can make the ink reappear by placing the paper in the freezer. 

As if that's not fun as it is, Pilot also has the FriXion Light, which is their line of erasable highlighters. Now that's something I've never heard of. They come in pink, orange and yellow. How great are those for highlighting text books in school without getting charged or in trouble? Pilot's Erasable  FriXion Pens and Highlighter line is definitely a great and inexpensive stocking stuffer at around $6 for a 3pk. A huge thanks to Pilot for the opportunity to review these fun pens!
