I got a set of 80 a few years ago and most were dried out and the quality wasn't as good. After a few uses of those markers they dried up extremely quickly. I decided to give this pack a try and wow has the quality improved. I didn't get any dried up markers, and it looks like their customer service is amazing. These markers have improved so much and so has the company. The markers have been smoother when applying and the casing each marker is in is nice. These are a great alternative to copic markers, I can't wait to get the brush tipped markers from the company as well. Definitely get these! Just know there is a bit of a learning curve, just like any marker you use.
Pro tip to anyone who gets these, store the markers horizontally instead of vertically to keep the ink distributed evenly.
