Black ink pen. The Pilot Acroball contains a newly created oil-based ink that has 1/5 of the viscosity (or what you could describe as "stickiness") of conventional oil-based inks on the market. The unique blend of ink and lubricants allows the ball at the pen tip to rotate smoothly, creating an enjoyable, low friction and non-skip writing experience. Oil-based ink draws in satisfyingly dark lines and is also water resistant. The patent pending grip features tire-like patterns and a slightly curved shape to give a nonslip hold.

The ink is too "greasy" and even with half the ink still there, it stopped writing

Good ballpoint - ink is occasionally scratchy, which I would have expected more from a "smooth-writing" pen.

In my writing experience, the rank is as follows:

This Pilot Acroball 0.5 writes very smooth. If the holding part can be softer or as soft as uni alpha gel grip, it can be better. The 0.7 is not that good to me.
My favorite ballpoint...

My favorite ballpoint pen for note-taking. It writes a consistent, thin, dark line with no skipping or blobbing. The grip and balance of the pen in your hand are very nice. Compared to the 0.7 mm acroball it does have a little bit of "scratchiness," by which I mean that the tip of the pen is sharp and you can feel the pen-paper interaction, but it is minimal. I like a little scratch in my pen for printing but like something smoother for cursive writing (like the Uniball Jetstream 0.7 mm ballpoint). This pen rocks.
