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 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.

I do NOT care for the ink in this pen. It's thick for a 0.5mm and it has occasion to skip. I do, however, love the physical pen body. The cap is adorable and allows for easy on-book clipping. I switched the Pilot refill for a Uni-ball Signo 0.38mm and haven't looked back yet.

This pen is a good, general purpose pen, but the ink flow is very heavy and will take quite some time to dry. Also expect blobbing when you write quickly.

The ink, unlike Pilot's famous G2 line, is real carbon pigment gel ink, not the cheap, dye-based G2 ink, so it truly is archival and solvent proof.

To be honest, though, Uniball Signos are a better pen.

Cute, nice looking inexpensive pen,and comes in some nice colors. But, the ink flow is a little uneven, and it's not as smooth as other pens like it. It's a little skippy here, a little globby there.

For the same price, you can get a uni-ball signo UM 100, which lays a nicer line and is smoother, although the presentationof the Uni is not as attractive, I admit. This is, I believe, the type of pen Pilot is trying to compete with.

Pilot, I know you can do better - for example, the Hi-Tec and the new FriXion, "color-pencil'like" erasable gel pens. Get to it!
