I searched online and came up with a short list and decided to head off to my local WHSMiths to get some to test out for this, I found two Papermate Replay Max and Uni-Ball Fanthom.
Frixion - for the review Frixion
The Frixion comes in two sizes 0.5mm and 0.7mm, it also comes in all sorts of colours.
Papermate Replay Max - for the review i will call it Replay
The Paper mate comes in 1.0mm which is too thick for me..... I am not sure on colours, as my WHSmiths only had Black Blue and Red, the usual colours.
Uni-Ball Fanthom - for the review i will just call it Uni
This i believe is 0.7mm and is quite like the Frixion in some ways.....it comes in lost of colours when i first saw it months ago there was a huge display with lots of colours which is now long gone...
First tests, Grip and what the rubber is like
Frixion - good rubber as its solid and unlikly to break away, the hand grip is perfect its comfortable well thought out.
Replay - The rubber is AWFUL, its the cap of the pen which is too stiff and just doesn't have the same effect, the handgrip is nice but not as nice as Frixion
Uni - Now the Uni is a bit different, completely different, the rubber is FOAM (more about this in a minute) the hand grip isn't very nice, it looks horrible and feels about the same.
Winner = Frixion 1 point
Writing and Rubbing
Frixion - As expected, rubs out perfectly, leaves no stuff behind and writes like a dream, it feels very pleasurable to use (new favorite pen).
Replay - Ok to write with a bit scratch, ink is VERY faint as well in comparison, the rubber is too hard it has no give it in as its the lid.
Uni - Well the rubber comes apart with use leaves loads of mess and does not even rub out! It just smudges! The writing experience is just as bad!
Winner = Frixion 1 Point
Now this is not really useful just for fun!
Frixion - The Frixion disappears when exposed to heat but does come back a bit when frozen or cooled down!
Replay - Disappears as well!! I am guessing they use the same formula!
Uni - NOTHING HAPPENED!!!!
Winner = Uni 1 Point (but i would refer to give to Frixion for no reason)
Frixion - 87p for a pack of 3 in Tesco!
Replay - £2.49
Uni - £2.99
Winner = Frixion 1 point!
So the points add up as follows:
First Place - Frixion with 3 Points
Second Place - Uni with 1 Point (should be in 100th Place, it really is that rubbish)
Third Place - Replay with 0 Points
