Pilot Choose Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Black

The intense competition between Japanese pen manufacturers produces a joyful new innovative product line every year. The best traits of gel pens have been carefully selected for the Pilot Choose line. Like the Uniball UM-100 pens (you'll notice that the two look similar) the ink flows very smoothly and comes in a multitude of vibrant colors. Like the Uni-ball Signo Broad line, the Pilot Choose ink is waterproof and fade resistant. Lastly, the pens are bargain priced, conveniently labeled with the color names on their caps, and are made of 73% recycled plastic!

The 0.7 mm collection includes Silver and Gold, which show up nicely on dark-colored paper.

At first i didnt like this pen as much as say, hi-tec of the same tip diameter.
My opinion is now different. the pen tip is much more durable than the hi tec (I bent the hi tec .5mm the first day i had it!, but that was me not paying attention at work). Though they are the same size, I wouldnt say they write the same. the hi tec still feels like it is more precise, but this feels a little more planted to the page.

Definitely recommend.

I like these pens very much, but they are not well made. Some began to leak shortly after beginning to use them.

Another favorite of mine. It seems like they don't have the inventory like they use to. Marvelous smooth writing pens. I love how the pen feels. Comfy good control of writing. I wish they had more colors in stock like they use to have.

I find this pen skips a lot. While I like the fineness (it definitely feels more like a .4 than a .5), after a few lines of writing it almost always starts skipping. Would not purchase again.
