These highlighters are exactly what I was hoping they would be. I've been using the thick Sharpie gel highlighters for the longest time, but they always were too big for the tiny Bible font. These highlighters are the perfect size with more colors to offer!
CBD carried a Hi-Glider put out by YC. I purchased one of those. I then purchased these. They are not the same. Those put out by YC is a superior product. For whatever reason CBD no longer carries the YC gel sticks. That's to bad because like Ellen S. experienced these gel gliders leave little blobs on the page when they dry out. Also the YC colors themselves are superior. If you had the opportunity to try the YC brand you would know the difference.
These gel highlighters work very well without bleeding through thin paper. They go on with a thin waxy feel, no wetness at all, and overnight the slight waxy feel disappears. After that, the highlighting isn't even detectable to the touch. I used to use a yellow crayon or pale colored pencil, but these work even better. These translucent colors are pretty and could probably be used for illustrations if you wanted. Some are darker than others, but the print is readable through the colors I've tried so far (yellow, green, pink). The yellow one is the most subtle of the three I've tried.
These and an extra fine (005 or 01) Pigma Micron pen are all I use in my journaling Bible. No bleed-through and only the barest of ghosting.
There are two different kinds of Bible markers....and this is the WRONG marker.
You want the YC Bible Hi-Glider Gel Marker. Please do not be deceived.....make certain that the YC is on the Gel marker that you order.
I made the mistake of ordering this type , without the YC and they are junk. The purple, green and blue are way too light and they all arrived dry and crumbling. Each time I tried to use them I had to use a kleenex to wipe them off on the ends because they were all crumbly and would get peices all over the pages of my bible. UGH!
Now i make certain that I purchase only YC Bible Hi-Glider Gel Markers!
