Bulkier than it looks. Not bad if you want a thick barrel, but definitely more than i expected looking at it. Click action feels a little loose, but the pen writes well enough. Decent material, but it took less than two days of use for the barrel to start looking dirty (though it seems to clean easily). So all in all, a good pen, but probably a bit overpriced.

WARNING!! DON'T BUY THIS PEN!! I ordered two of these pens, and they both failed on me miserably after one month. One pen broke mechanically and stopped protracting the nib out, rendering it worthless. The second pen began leaking black ink everywhere, damaging my desk and clothing. I had to throw away some beloved desk accessories as a result of the leaking ink. The pen looks nice when you first get it, and the hexagonal body makes it easy to hold. But the pens are manufactured poorly and don't last. I have requested a full refund with JetPens on this order and am willing to send these both back to them. So far, I have not heard anything back yet. I will never buy AG Spalding pens ever again in my life. What a disaster!

Update: I have had this pen for a over a month now. I decided to convert the pen to use Parker refills. You need to drill the pen tip to so the Parker refill will fit into it. Next, remove the plastic end of the Parker refill, but plug the end flush to the refill end. Finally you may need to cut the spring in half. Now I have an awesome pen that will accept Parker refills.

A good pen, with a nice balanced weight and feel. My main complaint is the very fine line -- this 0.7 mm is finer than others. I ordered a blue Zebra F series refill for it, but that only comes in fine, which is a bit scratchy. I wish JetPens could offer some 1.0 mm Zebra refills, but they only seem to come in fine.

The pen feels nice, very nice. The only issue that I had with it is that while writing, the retract-o-button rattled around a little bit. It is snug when the pen is sheathed, although is writing position is has room to move around and make a little bit of noise. Enough to drive a man crazy.

I used a small piece of .0025 inch plastic shim stock and tucked it down into the gap between the button and the pen body, thereby saving it from a lifetime of darkness in the drawer.

If the rattle would have not been fixable, the pen would have gotten the lowest possible rating. If the rattle was absent upon arrival, the highest.
