DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
From the new oil-based ink formula to the balanced pen design, the Pilot BPS-GP was made to give you an effortless writing experience. It is considered by some to be the smoothest ballpoint pen available. Some claim that it writes even smoother than a gel pen! The 1.6 mm ballpoint writes a 0.55 mm line. The BPS-GP also features a comfy slip-proof triangular-shaped soft rubber grip and a clear barrel so you can monitor the amount of ink you've used.

Ok, slight update to my previous review. After writing with this pen for the past few days I have to retract my prior statement, it did glob a bit at first but now it writes quite well and no longer globs. My co-workers love it because of how bold it writes and my son wants some for himself...needless to say I am ordering more, now as a matter of fact. :)

I can't believe how smooth this ball point pen writes. I have always hated ball point pens but this one is amazing. Smooth, light and evenly distributes ink. Good reasonable price. I am going to order more.

I have used this bp for a few years and the only negative for me would be it is not available in a retractable version. I have lost many tips, but this the best writing bp I have ever used. I am going to try the new Zebra Z-Mulsion EX and will give you a comparison. I only use broad pens and bp works better for me than gel.

As some one who exclusively used Crystal BICs throughout college, I can honestly say I thought that I would LOVE this pen, unfortunately...I really don't even like it.

As a plus: The ink does flow incredibly smoothly right out of the gate and the ink is really dark. (Usually only seen once you've used a smaller ball point regularly for a longer period of time.)

The negative: The wide tip shows the ink streaking that ballpoints cause to be instantly apparent. What I mean is that the ballpoint ink does not write in one clear line (say like a gel or liquid pen). Instead, as it is distributed along the page as you write, there is a clear lack of ink in some of the strokes. It's likely because the ball is so big that ink cannot be evenly distributed over it. In smaller tipped ballpoints you probably wouldn't notice it at all, but in this 1.6 mm tip you will likely see it immediately. At least, I did.

This is my favorite ball point. Writes perfectly. Like the black more than the blue. Wish it was available in a click variety.
