My opinion, but yes they are equvalent in crack or inclusion finding.

Having worked in and around a large machine shop all of my career I have seen both used. We also used x-ray and ultra sonic testing.

Die Pen was used on non ferrous, non magnetic materials.

Mag particle on alloy steel, cast iron, etc.

x-ray on open root welds

UT on bar stock to find cracks and voids that would surface during machining.

If you have die pen ability make sure the heads a squeaky clean because residual oil will mask problems.
