Of the batch of multi-pens...
, August 6, 2011
Of the batch of multi-pens I bought (Surari 4C, Vicuna 2+1, Jetstream3 0.5mm), I
was least impressed with this one when I took it out of the packaging. It was by
far the thickest--approximately 12.5mm at the grip--and looked pretty big. Then
I started using it, and now it's my favorite one!
The ink is incredible. I have had smoother and brighter lines with this pen than
with the 0.7mm Jetstream line. It almost never globs or skips, not does it put
down ink when I just slightly raise the pen off the page to move to my next
letter. I have not used any pen with better ink or more perfect flow than this!
The best part about the pen is the clip, which is spring-loaded so you can clip
it on big things. (If all you need to do is clip it to your pocket or something,
then it's even easier than most clips.) The clip is heavy-duty without being too
bulky and doesn't seem to wear down over time. The plungers have strong,
satisfying springs on them that also have not weakened with my incessant
plunging tic. As for the size, it's actually not a problem the more I use the
pen and I have gotten used to it over time. I highly highly recommend this pen.
I longed for this pen...

This review is from Pilot Acroball 3 Smooth Writing 3 Color Ballpoint Multi Pen - 0.7 mm - Orange Body
I longed for this pen so much that I had it shipped to Europe. And I'm
astonished! The design is just as good as the pictures show and it writes as
well, or even better, as the standard Acroball. The refills are the same size as
the standard Super Grip / Réx Grip ones, so (presuming that these refills are
found easily) you don't have to fear that this pen will stop writing until the
regular refills come out. The only glitch may be that there is just three strips
of plastic under the grip, the rest is just the rubber – it makes the grip
softer, but it also shows through a little. I think the black version wouldn't
have this problem.
