My favorite gel pen of all time. Pilot must have changed the ink formulation,
because as of December 2013, when I bought the latest one, it is completely

This pen does write very smooth and leaves a crisp color, but so does my Uniball
Signo. The biggest drawback with this pen is that it is NOT water resistant in
the least. That means if I spill something or get caught out in the rain, my
notes smear well into the next page and there goes my nice crisp color. I want a
pen that I am comfortable writing checks with and signing legal documents as
well as taking notes and doodling. So I'll stick with my Signo.

This pen, as cheap and simple as it is, beats out dozens of other pens that are
up to 3 times as expensive. I'm serious. This pen has a functional grip that,
while not squisy, is comfortable and non-slip. the clip works well for shirt
pockets, etc. I like the feel of the clicking mechanism. Finally, to the
writing. This pen is the smoothest pen out of all the liquid and gel pens I
have, and this pen writes the darkest and most crisp. I love the writing
quality. It puts my G2s and miffy and signos and vision elites all to shame.
The Energel X is smooth, has never skipped on me, always creates a nice vivid
black line from first touch, and creates sharp lines.
There is only one downfall, and even that is circumstantial. I have heard that
this pen does not have waterproof ink, which means that if you are doing labs in
a science course, the ink may smudge and ruin a page of your lab notebook, in
the case that water or some other liquid spills.
Overall, considering price and writing quality, this is a great deal, and you
should NOT hesitate to add both this and the blue version to your cart.

A wonderfully cheap and basic pen.
These things are my it pen. Bold dark lines, nice grip, stands out on notes and
post its. Feels good and writes good. Got one here to try it out and loved it.
Bought a 5 pack at a store around here on the cheap as well. Because of the
price, and because I don't have to order online if I need more, I carry these
around daily. I like them enough to use, but they are replaceable enough to
actually let someone else borrow it. Really nice pens that I won't lose sleep
