DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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.

I debated whether or not to write this review since I've only used it for only 3 tasks - and then I admitted to myself that my relationship with the Pilot Choose must be terminated. I ordered it based on the fact that I bought this pen in red & loved it....but my hopes were dashed when clearly the black ink didn't get the memo from red, skipping & scratching so badly that I'm ready to break up with it. As most ladies, I thought the pen would change - I tried telling it that it wasn't holding up its end of the bargain. But then I realized he was incapable of change, quite stuck in his ways. On a side note, every once in a rare while, I receive a "lemon" pen. That's why I gave it a generous 2 stars. If you're still reading this, consider my advice & go for a slightly pricier Pilot Hi-Tec 0.3-0.5, Pentel Slicci or even Pilot Maica. I tried using the CHOOSE for a letter & right from the beginning, the it stunk (skipping & scratching)...within 3 paragraphs I waved the white flag. Once I accepted the fact that the black version wasn't like it's smarter, funnier fraternal twin, RED CHOOSE, I ended our brief relationship, professing that indeed "It's not me, it's you!" Learn from my mistake and pass on this ironically-named CHOOSE pen. Click on over to the gel pen section & CHOOSE another writing instrument....you won't be sorry!

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.
