This multi-pen rules. All 4 basic colors and a .5 mm pencil with a rubber-type grip. Totally awesome. Plus my strongly-worded letters to the city council are always taken more seriously when I write them with this pen.

Love this pen. Excellent grip balance. I also have a uniball jetstream multi pen. The uni is great in every way except the refills don't hold as much ink as the Pilot 4+1 and therefore is costlier to operate.
As far as refills go the best for the Pilot 4+1 is the pilot bvrf 8f acro. Excellent ink, smooth, no problems except it only comes in 3colors. The bkrf 6f also fits this pen but is crappy. Unistyle fit gel works in this pen but I'm not a fan of gel as it isn't as permanent. I think pentel slices work to but pentel prods aren't as good as pilot and uni.
So get this awesome pen. And just put the right ink in it! The bvrf8f. We just need more colors for this great refill, please!

I just purchased this pen and immediately switched out the ink for Uni Style Fit gel cartridges (which fit perfectly) and I adore this pen. The ballpoint pens write nicely, I just prefer the gel ink. This is a wonderful pen, the weight is nice, it's very professional and the grip forces you to hold the pen correctly, which for me leads to better handwriting. I recommend it highly, with or without the pen hack!!

I just got this from Jet Pens in the mail and I took it out and I really like it. However, I also ordered an extra 5mm pencil component that *I thought* I could switch out with one of the colored inks. Well, I was dumb (and hopeful) the extra pencil refill does fit in the same slots as the ink but (DUH!) I can't advance the pencil lead because the only advancing feature is the clip. So, if someone is trying to customize this multi-pen into a multi-pencil I'm here to tell you that it won't work. I didn't see in the description where I couldn't so let this be a lesson to all McGyvers wannabes, like me.

Other than that (which was completely my fault) this is a great pen with a good weight and the ink flows smooth, ever better than I thought. The tabs are feather light, so when you switch between colors you might not even notice the change right away. A great multi-PEN.

Excellent multi-pen. Many people at my work have this unit. I've waited until now to purchase one. Boy am I impressed. I should've been using this for a long time. Super super super smooth writing pen(s). The pencil feels nice too. It's 0.5, which normally I'm not a fan of due to my heavy writing style. But somehow, this feels stronger. Overall, this unit feels good to write with and looks great too. Not to mention it's flexibility since you have everything you need in one unit!

I LOVE THIS PEN. Too bad I've written with Jetstream ink before. That ballpoint ink is the best. This ballpoint ink is meh. But this pen! The weight, the ergonomics, the aesthetics, the fact that I want it with me all the time in an age where I do all my journaling on my phone – that's what makes this pen worth having. It's not just about the ink. And I see that I can change the cartridges from all the reviews. I'll try that! Maybe that will make this pen the ultimate.

I wanted a 4 + 1 pen that was all matte black including the tip. This pen has got the look I was going for! When using this pen... I always stop to admire the beauty of it hah.

I also have the White Zebra Clip-On 1000S 4 + 1 pen. I went for the Pilot Pen because the Zebra pen's tip was shiny metallic. It caused me to look for a pen that didn't have that metallic shiny tip like the zebra which led me to this pen.

Despite aesthetics, I felt the Zebra was a lot more sturdier and I loved how the switching mechanism felt over the Pilot Dr. Grip which felt a lot more fragile and not as sturdy, but I think it is good enough.

Both the Zebra Clip-On 1000S (sold out here) and this Pilot Pen are the best!

I've had this pen for about 4 yrs if not more. I LOVE it, it's perfect for note taking. I have bought this same line in different colors as gifts and the feedback and smiles it brings just amazing. Will be buying more for future personal use. Thank you Jetpens, your pens and pencils are awesome.

BTW, I've been asked if you offer this pen with a .7 mm lead for the pencil? Also I would personally love to have this pen with all .5 mm lead/refills, is that possible? Do you have .5mm pen refills that would fit this pen? Thank you again

By far my favorite color of either the first or second series. This matte black version is a home run in the Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 pens. It's well balanced and feels spectacular. The matte finish makes this one of the best looking versions of this model. You'll feel like you got a pen worth at least twice the price. The versatility is second to none in any field where you have to make notations or edits. Note: buy plenty of extra ink refills in the colors you think you'll use the most.

Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 is a good value for the money. It compares favorably with Coleto Hi TEC-C, the Zebra Clip-On Multi, and the Uni Style-Fit Meister. I appreciate the ability its compatibility with the refills from its other competitors. All the mechanisms are well-engineered and stand up to daily use. The finish is durable; the look under-stated. If you are partial to regualr ball pen refills in a multi-pen, Dr. Grip is worth trying.
