I was actually a bit...
I was actually a bit surprised how much I like this pen. It's one of the smaller pens I own, but sits well in the hand. The roller ball writes very smoothly and with an agreeable line thickness. One very small disappointment is that the pen does not lend well to being converted to an eye-dropper filled pen in part because of there how far down the barrel the cap reaches (won't go over an o-ring), and partly because of how deep the nib threads are within the barrel. Nonetheless I made the conversion using only silicon grease for sealing, and will test it out. Otherwise, extremely pleased with the pen.

I've raved about this...
I've raved about this style before, and lamented the loss of my red Ice Sport to ink clogs so much that I bought this green one to replace it. While the new one was in the mail, in a last-ditch effort to save the red I dipped the ink in boiling water (!) ... and it writes again.
My only comment with this style is that sometimes the ballpoint feels a little scratchy on the page. Otherwise, it's great. Uses a lot of ink, but it's a medium point, so you'd expect that.
