6 Levenger Fiber Tip Refills
Newly minted book vandal.
The day has arrived when I too can write in the margins of books, thanks to the extra-fine fiber tips my small handwriting is now legible. If you have passable handwriting I would go with the medium, the line is a little bit bolder, but the medium is too smooth for me it's like walking a big dog with bad knees. The extra-fine tip gives me unbelievable control, smoothness and accuracy. My extra-fine tips last about half as long as my Waterman refills last, which evens out considering the Levenger refills are a little over half the price of the Watermans. I don't follow Levenger's guide lines about keeping your cap on the pen at all times. When I write I am prone to pacing, getting coffee/wine and shooting out texts or e-mails if I couldn't do this I would never get anything done. I can leave my pen uncapped for a good thirty minutes not only that I have a reading lamp pointed at my desk so my desk is probably a good ten degrees hotter than the rest of my office, with all that my pen has never gone out right after leaving it uncapped but only while I'm in the midst of writing something. If endurance is what your worried about I would go with the regular or ceramic refills which last a lot longer but are not quite as smooth.

Fits a Rotring 600!
Not sure if they'd fit, I optimistically ordered these felt tips for a Rotring 600 rollerball pen. Well, it fits like a silk glove. Perfect! The medium point is just right for architectural sketching and is smooooooth. I'm not nuts about the spring tip, as it's a little soft, but I'll get used to it. No drying of the tip as others have reported, but I use it daily and keep it capped otherwise. The Rotring is back in the game!

I've been using these fiber tip refills for years, and contrary to some opinions expressed here, I find everything about them more than satisfactory. I've never had a problem with them drying out prematurely, and they last fairly long, although there is some inconsistency. However, I'm always replacing the cap, rather than leaving them uncovered. The broad tip is good for dramatic signatures, the fine too fine for my taste, and the mediums, perfect. Don't hesitate to buy.

I only wish
I love these refills. I have always enjoyed writing with a fiber tip. I only wish they would last longer. I did a lot of writing and the refill ran out long before I thought it would.

A Smooth Writing Experience
I have been using these Fiber Tip Refills in medium for over a month now and have been quite pleased with their functionality. The life-span of this refill is not as long as perhaps a ballpoint refill; on that note, though, these refills are not ballpoint refills. I have also not experienced what the previous reviewer experienced, in that my refills have not been drying out prematurely. As a matter of fact, my refills have been writing well until emptied. The smooth writing paired with the pressure-sensitive spring feature afford the writer a supreme writing experience.

I rarely write reviews for anything; just don't have the time. But I felt compelled to write something about this product because it is so awful. I liked the way that it wrote, felt like it was smooth, etc. BUT if you do not use it constantly, multiple times a day, each day, it will dry up. Case in point. I put in a new refill on Friday, did not use it until today (4 days later) and it is dry. Worked fine last friday. This is typical for this product. A complete waste of money. Just awful. I will have to find another refill, or get a pen from another company. That is the other problem, as an aside; the Levenger pens really do not have options for better refills from other more reliable companies.

New Colors PLease
I love both these and the ball point cartridges however I want more color selections, Pink, Green, Purple to name what are probably the ones the most people would like
Can you answer to let me know if this is in our future,??

Take the good with the not so good
The good first: the color of the blue ink is vibrant. I ordered the broad and would re-order in medium. The broad is about the thickness of a regular Sharpie. Much too thick for average daily use. It would have been helpful to see the chart on the back of the packet on the website. To top it off, I bought the six-pack. Also, after 2 days of use, the tip mysterioulsy tucked itself into the casing and had to be tossed.

I wish they lasted longer
These don't last long enough. I am not satisfied with the quality or value.

PERFECT for Levenger Calendars
I have been a ROLLERBALL writer for years and use several colors on a daily basis however the Levenger Circa Monthly Pages do NOT like them! I decided to try these in the extra-fine Black and am so glad I did ~ They write so smooth with crisp dark ink that dries very quickly. Although now I underline to highlight my category color with Colored Pencils instead of using a Rollerball, the combination will be a pleasure to get used to because these refills are so wonderful!!!!! =)
