A specialty pencil for highlighting, the Lyra Mega Liner 96 is a woodcase pencil with a fluorescent wax core.
It is oversized, with an oversized core. I have yellow and blue versions, but it also comes in green, orange, and pink. The diameter is about 11mm, so they just fit in most large hole sharpeners.
The pencil is hexagonal, and has a very lightly varnished natural finish. It is imprinted:
Obverse: Germany [logo] Lyra Mega Liner 96 962n
Reverse: paper + copy + fax
Let me mention that I like liquid pigment fluorescent highlighters. My favourite, the see through Zebra Zazzle, disappeared from Canadian shelves a few years ago, but I still have a few.
The Lyra Mega Liner is not just for show – it is a working highlighter, leaving illuminated marks on paper.
I tried it on printed paper, and on a laser printout. It works, though it doesn’t give the saturated effect of fibre wedge highlighters dispensing bright yellow pigment.
If I could find these locally, I might be using them every day. But via mail order, they become expensive for an ancillary item.
