Pros:Can have broad or fine line, comfortable to use, and have plenty of ink.
Cons:Some colors aren't really that bright
The Bottom Line: Overall, I think this is a really good product and that you get your money's worth. I recommend it to anybody in need of a good set of highlighters.
As anybody who has ever attended school would know, a highlighter can be a valuable asset. I figured this out during my first semseter of college. I have, in the past, just found one lying around the house purchased who knows when until this year when they all seemed to go missing at once. I found a coupon for the local Staples store for the brite liner Grip highlighters, and decided to give them a whirl.

To be Broad or Fine, that is the question:
A nice feature to these highlighting pens is that the tip is angles so that you can either have a broad line, which is nice for highlighting, or a fine line, which comes in handy for when you really just want to underline. I really like having the underlining option because it bothers me how the text often smears if you're highlighting it fully, and how the tip of your highlighting pen turns an icky grey color. Unlike some other pens, this one's design makes it really easy to manuever using either the fine or the broad end. It doesn't wobble at all. You can even turn it to the side just a little and make a medium sized line if you need something to really stand out amongst your underlining.
I find the rubber grip they use to be quite comfortable. The texture feels really good on my fingers. The pattern they use are ovals in a spiral. I also really liked how they made the clips on the cap firm but bendy so that they'll hold to something well but not break easily.
As far as ink levels go i think they did a really nice job with these, as far as filling them up all the way. When I first got them I found little spots inside the caps from when I had bumped them up against something during the day. It wasn't enough to make but a very small mess consisting of maybe a dot or two on your fingers, but enough to let you know that they hadn't tried to cheat you out of a fully loaded marker. The spotting did stop after I had been using it a little while though.
The only thing that I can see really bothering anybody about this product is that not all of the colors are really bright, as their name suggests. The yellow and orange really stand out, but the others have a more mild tone to them. I think some people may like this though; I had some friends that complained that the super-bright yellow hurt their eyes.
