Reranch touch up pens - anyone use them?

    I'm considering buying one of the Reranch touch up pens to fix a couple of small chips/dings on a bass that I previously refinished in Reranch nitro. Does anyone have any experience with those, and if so, were you happy with the results? I do have some of the matching color and clear left in rattle cans, so I was wondering if I could just drop-fill the problem areas with that instead of paying for the pen.

    Any advice would be appreciated - thanks.

    I bought the clear and the vintage amber.
    The amber is yellow and stands out like a sore thumb.
    I haven't had much luck with them.

    I'd be using the matching color and standard clear, so I don't anticipate any color/shading problems. I just wanted to know if the pen would achieve a better result than doing it with a few drops of paint from the can applied with a toothpick or tiny brush.
