Let me prefaces my review...

Let me prefaces my review by saying how much I adore the Pentel Slicci pens in general. I love them, and have just about every size in many colors - but my second favorite is this, the 0.7mm black Gel Ink Pen. My fave is the same pen in a 0.4mm size (which appears not to be in stock currently). This pen is fantastic...does not skip and produces a very nice dark line. It does tend to use a lot more ink than the 0.4mm but then again that goes without saying since it's a 0.7mm. Considering the price, quality and usability, this pen is clearly a 5 out of 5 stars and I would HIGHLY recommend this to one and all. But since you are still on this site if you are currently reading my review.... go put the 0.4mm AND the 0.3mm in your cart. However, after purchasing all the other widths, I recommend you avoid the 0.25mm width because I find it skips more than it writes, and even considering the thin width of the line, it is nowhere near dark enough. For the tiny width lines, I would go to another model instead of the Slicci (several here on Jet Pens are amazing) or consider a drawing pen. Anyway, I would give the Slicci 0.3 - 0.7 ten stars if that were possible!

I have just recently started to buy gel pens, and so far this is the only one that I am satisfied with. I found the Pilot G2s too "skippy", and the Hi-Tecs were a bit too fine for me (I prefer 0.7). These are amazingly smooth and the colors are great (if a bit limited). Thanks for stocking this diameter!

I have a number of Pilot and Pentel gel and other pens for general writing, and just got this pen this week. This has become my all-time favorite. If you want a scratchy pen, this is the opposite. If you want a pen with an easily legible black line, not too wide, and a pen that glides over the paper as if the paper were Teflon, made just for your hand motion, this is the pen for you. My handwriting and printing appearance has become much smoother and fluid in style, and more artistically desirable. This pen has improved my writing more than hours of practice. I still use my fountain pen and other gels and pens, but this pen is the first I reach for, it's the bomb!

This is my absolute favorite black pen. The ink is dark, it writes incredibly smoothly, and it never skips. This pen just glides!

Pen writes smoothly and glides across the paper. It releases a ridiculously large amount of ink. It won't skip but unfortunately it doesn't dry quickly either. Expect smudges on your paper and hands. Although it is a 0.7, it seems to create an even thicker line than expected. It is short in length and has a thin barrel. This aspect makes it ideal for smaller hands. I will definitely not repurchase a Slicci in this point again. The 0.4 mm nib glides just as smoothly on the paper without the smudges as it dries quicker than this one.

I find there is almost nothing wrong with this pen. First of all I like the needle-ish tip which is great in my opinion for gel pens. In my taste, I like the way the pen looks except for the clip which says Slicci and silver around it. The FIRST DAY I got the pen in the mail it started to chip off but hasn't taken anymore damage since then. This pen is ideal for quick jotting anywhere you need to. It's also great for jotting down notes in a hurry since this pen is like the Papermate Profile of Gel pens; very smooth and writes vividly and almost has no white space in the lines. The cap nicely fits on the end and in some cases is more convenient then holding the cap (which is a habit of mine) One of the best gel pens I've used. Highly Recommended!

P.S.- This is the first one I've tried out if all the Pentel Slicci Ink pens and I can imagine the other point sizes and colors (love the sky blue color, really nice) are great, too. Wish they had a retractable version..
