As you can see, you need to have bright lights to see the sparkles. Under regular indoor lighting, the pens look unremarkable. I have put them next to the blue regular Decimo and the red Sesenta which are the closest others that I have to the new colours.
A closeup in natural light which shows that the red isn't really red, more of a maroon. I wish they would make red pens in fire-engine red and not these subdues tones. The blue is a nice colour, brighter than the standard blue. It's probably the nicest blue of the blue capless pens that I have.
And finally, here they are amongst their brothers and sisters. I heard some mutterings that these LEs may be shorter than the regular Decimos but you can see that they are identical.
Did I spend too much on these pens? Yes
Are they worth the additional cost over the standard? Probably not.
Am I obsessed with capless pens? What do you think
