I hate leaky highlighters

I was absentmindedly twirling a highlighter and ink got everywhere. I think there should be a highlighter with a wide roller, or 5 balls, that apply bright colored ink but have the advantages of a ballpoint pen. It would be less likely to leak, and woudn't smudge as much, and it would be almost completely dry.

Instead of a rolling ball, why not just have a rolling cylinder with rounded edges, so it stays inside a ball mount?

I like the thought.

that's what I meant by roller, shapu.

This is actually a really, really good idea. I've met more dried-out felt-style highlighters than I would've preferred, in my life. KERBUN!

Or, for the really picky, some frisket, an exacto, a Paasche AB, and a bottle of yellow Createx.

Ahh...I thought you meant something different.

My bad.

It should, however, be noted that I was mainly replying to the five balls section of the idea.

isn't one big ball enough? like an anti-perspirant roller.
