DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
This Pilot Down Force ballpoint pen boasts smooth writing at all angles! This means that you can write upside-down or at any angle and still get consistent ink flow. The pen can even write on wet paper. This is achieved through a unique mechanism at work inside the pen—pressing the top button increases the air pressure at the top of the ink refill, causing the ink to be pushed towards the pen tip. No special pressurized ink refills are necessary—simple Pilot BKRF refills, listed under Recommended Refills/Parts, are compatible. Black ink is included with the pen.

Notes:
• The use of refills other than those listed under Recommended Refills/Parts may cause ink leakage or other malfunctions.
• If ink does not come out when writing, try pressing the top button again.

The pen also features a clip with a sturdy metal spring, ideal for clipping the pen to thick items such as binders. The clip can be used 100,000 times without breaking.

Pushing the top button extends the pen tip, and opening the clip retracts the tip. This ensures that when clipping the pen in your pocket or anywhere else, you do not accidentally leave the tip extended.

Pen body is nice- it's...
March 1, 2012

Pen body is nice- it's solid, hard plastic, which is not normally great for lots of writing, but it's somehow very satisfying in the hand for it. A good diameter for my hand I suppose. If you grip your pen very hard, though, the textured grip and hardness might be unpleasant. This is where the less-than-impressive ink cartridge factors in. It's only mediocre, run-of-the-mill typical bad ballpoint. I rarely like to use ballpoints, much preferring the smoother new jetstream/acroball/surari. The good news is this pen body can take the thinner refills of that type- other colors' reviews mention some; the surari multipen refills also work. So if you like the colors and a hard chunk of plastic holds appeal (it should!) give this a try but get different refills. (By the way, the end is gray, not white as it may appear on some monitors, which I am glad of.)

Me again- as you can read in my previous review for this pen, I really liked it. But it broke for no good reason! The barrel cracked irreparably under conditions that were not especially rough and didn't destroy any of the other pens I was carrying with this one, so I am very disappointed. I considered buying another to replace it, but since I don't know what the problem was the first time I have no reason to think it wasn't simply a poor/weak pen. Too bad.

My favorite pen to carry in my front pants pocket. So light you don't know it's there and the retractable action is money. Writes well, too! This replaced a lost one. I don't know how I lost the first one since was the same bright orange.

Love the pressurized ink aspect of these pens. The orange is very visible, meaning that I can see it across the room if someone borrows it.
