I have been on the search for a really good highlighter that comes in a variety of colors. I’ve tried almost every single type of highlighter. Some worked better than others, but some only came in 3 different colors and the ones that DID come with a variety of colors were UNGODLY in their prices.
Usually the highlighters don’t last too long before they dry out, didn’t have a vibrant color, or didn’t go too smoothly across a piece of paper. Some smeared ink, and some bled through the paper.
There wasn’t ANYTHING with these Z-HL Zebra Highlighters that I didn’t like. There are five different colors; pink, green, blue, orange, and yellow. AND they come with 2 yellows (as it’s the most commonly used).
They write and highlight perfectly on every piece of paper even carbon copy, textbooks, and everything in between. It doesn’t smear ink at all, and I love the fact that the capsule where the ink is shows how much is in it, so you know when it needs to be replaced.
These highlighters keep me organized. I can copy MUST know stuff in a certain color. Or if I’m writing notes—I can go back over them later and highlight certain stuff in different colors, so I know everything that needs to be known—yet isn’t blended together by one color.
They have a chisel tip so it makes it easier to highlight smaller words (like a textbook) without it smearing into the next line like fat tip highlighters do. I also love that they have a rubber grip so it’s easier to hold for extended periods of time! Ahh..comfort!
Buy It: Zebra Z-HL Three Chamber Chisel Highlighters for $7.79 for 6 (two yellow come in the pack).
