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.

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!

Has a nice, thick black line. Not the blackest I've seen, but solid with good
coverage. Very smooth.
The only problem is, the ink is a bit too eager to leave the pen. A few days
after getting this pen, it leaked all over my pencil case. I've never had that
happen before. Maybe it was just a random bad pen that made it past quality
If the pen hadn't leaked, it'd be a decent and affordable black pen.
