The Pentel Fluorescent Marker is a highlighter. I don't know why it's not called that. Did someone think that "fluorescent marker" sounded more elite than "highlighter"? Or is "fluorescent marker" a term that simply means "highlighter" in some parts of the world?

|The actual colour of the highlighter is about a thousand times more intense and fluorescent than this photo shows. Sadly, most highlighters I have used end up with a dirty-looking tip after being used for a while.|

As I've mentioned before, I don't normally use highlighters (and this is only the second highlighter that I've ever reviewed here), so I don't really know what an "average quality" highlighter is. However, I suspect that this highlighter may be it. It looks good and has crisp, bright colours, but it can smear some inks and bleed through some papers. I don't recommend it, unless you are certain that the smearing and bleeding will not be issues for you.
