I just got this pen in the mail today and I love it!!! I took it to class with me for note taking and it writes very smooth with true to form ink color. It doesn't bleed through and it doesn't run away from you when you write with it. I highly recommend this pen!

I got the 0.35mm in black, and I love it! It's super smooth, black, and writes really well. Plus, it dries really fast! It's a very good pen to use for left-handed people.

Great pen! Smooth, dark, and fast drying ink (yay! I always manage to smear what I'm writing with most other pens). It's also super thin without being scratchy, which I appreciate. The grip was a bit greasy when I received it but the feeling wore off in a few days. Only wish it was a bit heavier, but I don't mind the weight too much.

I want more colors!

This is my favorite gel pen right now. It's very consistent, the ink is dark, and it's super smooth. The grip is nice to hold. The pen could be a little heavier though.

This pen literally glides across the page. I adore the .35mm nib. The great thing is that it has remained sharp through numerous scribblings and writings.

Excellent. Comfortable to write with, the ink dried instantly, and I never saw it skip or drag. It lasted a really long time too, I was writing in my journal daily for almost six months with it.

I'm not convinced with "sevgar's" contention that the retractable refills have an internal spring that pushes the ball up inside the tip when not in use blah blah. The little I know of tip engineering makes me dubious of this claim.

The real proof, though, that the refills on these Euros is he same as the RTX, is that you CAN compare the refills in the Euros vs. the knocking RTX ones:

the retractable energel needle-tip, the "Deluxe RTX Retractable," has the LRN1 refill inside, right out of the package.
The Energel Tradio pen, a capped pen, similar to the Euro, has the LRN1 refill right inside as well! This pen is marketed as the SAME pen as the "Euro" pen, but with an upmarket pearlescentbody color. Plus it can open so you can replace the refills. So, voila. The refills are the same across the energel range.

So, ya - SAME REFILL in both. I leave my caps off all the time and have no problems. And obviously no problems with the RTX.
My next experiment will be to cut off the bottom of the Energel NV and pull one of those out just to erase all doubts that it also uses the LRN1. My money is on the same as the Tradio -- LRN1.

Either way, these Energels are at the top of the pile as far as Gel ink refills in this world. Smoother, faster, blacker, brighter -- we Energel users have tried ALL the competition and they don't come close.

The only thing some inks have over the Energel is the pigment based inks, which are better "quality" and are harder to wash off paper. So that's something the folks at Pentel can get working on.

But as far as impact and quality of writing, these Energel inks are absolutely the best thing in writing besides fountain pen and ink! SO SMOOTH!! Keep it up Pentel we love what you do!!
