Nearly 15years ago I was working in Japan and soon discovered these unique and awesome pens.
The write a nice, consistent line and the tips does not get all mushy. Yes, they can seem scratchy if you're not doing something quite right, but that is becauseonly a thin, hard tip will write the kind of thin, .3mm type mechanical pencil kind of lines.

In Japan they sold a pack of these pens in a rainbow of colors. Don't know if that's available here, but it should be.

A few years after I got back from Japan, I asked Pilot Pens of USA why they did not have these same pens here back in the states. His response was the lamest, I-dont'know'whatist one I have ever heard, which was, "We don't sell these pens here because we want to maintain a variety of pens throughout the world."

Whch is a bit funny as I saw in Japan the same Pilot Pense the same ones we have here in the USA.

Anyway, if you are like me you want clean, un-varied lines you will like these pens...for all your writing-related stuff, especially for engineering, math, science, etc. Through the full life of the pen, the point remains just as firm as it was from the factory. I got to add, I hope to get some of these as Christmas presents this year now that I finally found them...again.

I'm sold on the Hi-Tec-C!
I've read the reviews about how great this series of pen is and I am now a believer.
I bought this in the .3mm because I think the .25 would be too thin as I'm a fast writer. The .3 was the perfect choice because you don't have to be too deliberate to get a good ink flow. It almost looks like a mechanical pencil and feels similar when writing.
That being said, I find this pen to be best suited for detail work when ink drawing and that has been it's primary use for me. I typically work in black & grey ink so the blue black adds just a touch of color to my work without being a distraction.
I will definitely be getting the .4mm in addition for daily writing and note taking.

I use these to fill out incredibly small spaces on customer required forms to maintain legibility and clarity. I use them in the full range of colors just to torment the reviewers of my paperwork.

I was excited to get this pen because I had a Hi-Tec-C Maica that worked pretty well. But, this pen was trouble from the first time I tried writing with it. The ink seemed to be dried up because of the faint writing it produced. But, at times, if I use the correct part of the tip the pen writes just fine. Very inconsistent!

Love the blue-black, and love the fine tip. I go back-and-forth between this and my signo dx .28, but I find I reach for my hitec-c pens more often. Fair warning to those who write big lettering and/or fast: the fine tips will feel very scratchy to you. If you want/like to write smaller text, this pen is a dream.

On a subjective note: i really like the weight of these, and for whatever reason, i prefer this pen over it's padded-grip equivalent. I guess all that means is, you'll have to buy one of each from jetpens and decide for yourself (I'm glad I did!)

This pen is perfect for consistent, super-thin lines for writing in small margins.

Main complaint about this pen is that it is still too scratchy. Color is OK, probably my third favorite, behind the Uniball Signo, and the Pentel Slicci.

i think that the .30 is better than the 25 because the 25 is really scratchy and hard to keep still, and i also bought a blue pen with this and this color was much better even though it doesn't have a rubber grip on it. really good pen, this pen has a better ink flow than the 25! good pen!!!
