Smash went above and beyond our expectations on this one. Does it drip? Yes. Does it stain? Yes. Is it hard to buff? Yes, so don't get it on your clothes. I would have to say this is the juiciest, most permanent, weather resistant, stainiest (is that even a word?) marker we have. To give you an idea of what this marker is like... imagine a Uni Paint (our favorite marker) filled with Smash Ink and a hard staining dye ink like Garvey. Go ahead, order one and experience streak free lines with perfect drips or no drips if that's how you roll. Pimp it out by flipping the nib and flaring it out to get a wider, round mark.
