Very smooth and has good color but... it doesn't dry fast enough as my journal
is full of smearing and smudges. The Uni-Ball Signo RT 0.38mm is my weapon of
choice compared to this pen.

This pen isn't bad. But I bought it along with the Uni-ball Signo DX UM-151 Gel
Ink Pen (also 0.38 mm), and I've found that one to be much better, so I don't
think I'll be using this one much.
Unlike this one, the Uni-ball doesn't stop making a line if you tilt it to the
side a bit, only to suddenly give a thick one when you press a little harder or
tilt it back upright. This pen is a bit fickle, in comparison - it doesn't have
a lot of in-between, it either makes a line or it doesn't.
I think that it should be a pretty good pen for writing, actually, but not for
illustration (which is what I bought it for). But the Uni-ball is a better pen
all-around, good for writing AND illustration and it's almost the same price...
so I'd recommend getting it instead.

Growing up in America, my favorite pen all throughout middle school was the
Pilot 0.7 Pen because of its dark ink and smooth lines. When I found out they
had a 0.5 I immediately grew attached to those because I naturally have small
handwriting. In high school I eventually switched to the Zebra Sarasa pens just
because they were more smooth but thats beside the point...
BUT when I started working at the froyo place called BerryCup, they had these
pens and I was like "woah, these are so cool". So I went to staples to try and
find them. Much to my demise, I couldn't find them so I was kind of like...
"where did my bosses get these cool pens?" so I googled it and TADAAAA I came
here and fell in love with Jetpens because it is an amazing site.
Thin for pilot G2 standards
Would look good on a handwritten application for a job or something
Good for small handwriting, makes large handwriting look neater
Fairly cheap (in comparison to Hi-Tech-C but of course not as thin)
Writes scratchy on thin pieces of paper
Overall, I'm glad I finally found these pens. I love the blue color and the red
is super bright! I'm a huge fan of pilot pens and wish they sold this stuff in

A few notes about my writing style:
I write quickly with a light touch and my normal print fits nicely on college
ruled paper. I’m a righty and my handwriting is mediocre at best, so I tend
to choose finer point gel/ball point pens to help with legibility. I don’t
use liquid pens because they tend to spew ink when I twirl them while I’m
This is my go-to pen when I'm studying. 0.38mm is really the perfect balance
between fineness and smoothness, especially with Pilot pens. I've gone through
over a dozen refills with this platform and haven't had any complaints. The
grip starts nice and low which is important to me because I hold my pens
relatively close to the tip. The click is satisfying and the pen itself is of
the highest quality. I hate losing pens but at less than $2 each, I didn't get
upset when one walked away. In my opinion, this is the best ultra-fine gel pen
available but I've recently started experimenting with newcomers and old time
favorites, so this might soon change!

This pen is fantastic. The ink is waterproof on my sketchpad. It is a very fine
point with no variation, and I use it to ink some drawings and to take fine
