This is a very stylish looking pen that writes as well as it looks. Another reviewer (pen9uin) stated that this pen does not come with a clip. I found that this is a pain to tolerate (the pen kept rolling off my desk), so I got the removable clip on a very cheap Pentel Sharplet-2 Mechanical Pencil and pried it to where it would snap onto the cap of this pen. If the lack of the clip is as bothersome to you as it was to me, you should try to find that pencil or any pen/pencil that has an adjustable clip.

I feel like the pen chooses its master and this one chose me. I love almost everything about it (the weight, feel, and look). I even solved the expensive refill problem by going with an Itoya roller ball refill (I picked up 5 of them at my local stationary shop down the block for $15). My only issue with it is that it rolls off my desk all the time. I wish there was a nice clip similar to what Kaweco sells its series.

Summary: a great piece for the collection that you won't regret spending the money on.

Love the pen, and the minimalist design. It's on my desk in a thin leather case and I take it with me when ever I travel.

To the person who was looking for some other refills that fit the Spalding pen:

The Staples brand, 0.7 gel ink refills in blue and black are a perfect fit. Too bad Staples doesn't make them in a 0.5.

The Cross Rollerball refills fit like the Uni Mitsubishi Liquid Ink Roller Ball Pen Refill and protrude ever so slightly more than the discontinued Spalding refill.

All Pilot refills are a no go. Neither are the Avant and Pentel refills.

Many of the shorter Zebra refills can be adapted with a posterior spacer made from an empty gel refill.

The good news is all the other wonderful choices available on this site. Thank you JetPens! :-)

The other really great news is that all the Spalding refills also fit my Platinum Modern Maki-e Gel Roller Pen.

The pen body is nice and sleek. I am not loving these Uniball refills though. Neither the ink that came in the pen nor the Uniball UBR-300 refill I purchased write worth a damn. Does anybody have another refill suggestion other than the GEL RT? I need a smaller than 1.0mm tip, preferably .5 or less. Thank you!

I've found that you can get the ink from a cheap pen, such as a Uniball Gel Impact RT (which you can find in bulk at any office supply store or Wal-mart), fits the casing and the opening of this pen perfectly--although I must say that the ink from the Impact RT is much more runny and thicker than I would have liked. It beats expensive refills!

Love pen style but need a smoother writing refill.

A couple of disappointments. The first is on me. I had a similar version of this pen for roughly ten years but it was smaller than this one. I was hoping when I purchased this one that it would be the same size but neglected to check the dimensions.

Secondly, and most importantly, the ink does not flow smoothly at all times. Too much of the time I have to go back and "fill in the blanks" where there was a brief ink stoppage. To be honest, every Pilot G-2 pen I have owned (many) have delivered consistent ink flow. I actually tried to insert a cartridge from a Pilot G-2 into the Spalding case but part of the cartridge design is just a little too big for that to work.

Have said all that, it is a stylish pen with a nice feel to it. If it had a better cartridge I would be in "pen heaven".

The pen is sleek, well-designed, and comfortable to hold. The cartridge doesn't write as smoothly as I'd like. No clip makes carrying the pen most difficult.

This is the best or one of the best and smoothest writing pens I've ever held. It has good weight for it's small diameter.

I immediately replaced the refill with an Ohto Ceramic Rollerball 0.7. It writes much better than the one that came with the pen. The body of the pen is very smooth, but not difficult to get a grip on. I don't have an issue with it rolling off my desk like other reviewers. In fact, I can put it down and it doesn't move at all. I'm very happy with this pen. I've been using it everyday since I got it. Fits great in my pocket. It doesn't weigh much at all.
