1. Stabilo Boss

The Stabilo Boss is a classic and has had the same iconic design. Its design is perfect and allows for precision usage. The brightness of the Boss is fantastic -- not too bright, but just bright enough to make what you have highlighted readable. One feature of the Boss that I especially like is the fact that it can be uncapped for up to four hours without drying out.  You can leave the cap off for hours and not be worried about it drying out. Stabilo has a great range of highlighers. 10 out of 10

2. Staedtler Textsurfer Classic Highlighter

Textsurfer Classic has a unique flat design. This highlighter marks all types of paper including fax, telex and carbonless copy paper. The Textsurfer features an "automatic pressure equalization system" that prevents the ink from leaking while on board an aircraft. It be used on inkjet paper without smudging the text. The barrel has a nice design and has ridges at the top where you would put your pointer finger; this allows for a better grip as your hand does not slip like it sometimes does with the Stabilo Boss. The ink is very bright and more regular yellow than a neon yellow.  Overall, I like this marker and have made it a part of my pencil case.
