If you are looking for the equivalent(and probably even better version) of the High tech C try the Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.28mm or the zebra sarasa 0.3 mm. Both are absolutely fantastic pens in all respects, and are even better because they're cheaper than the high tech c. Both also come with a grip and do not have a fragile needle point like the high tech c.

I have reviewed ths pen last year. The clip on the cap of my first one has broken mistake. Add to that the need for a new refill and the love for this pen, and I've just ordered a new one. As I've pointed out before, this is a wonderful pen for writing, sketching, doodling. Feels comfortable in your hands. It's very smooth and precise. I very much recommend it.

The Hi Tec C is my very favorite pen! I bought several and gave them to my friends for Christmas, so you may be receiving orders from new people. It was hard for me to give some away. I'm very possessive with my pens and usually don't like to share them. I love the sharp point making it easy to fill in small spaces on forms and even as much as I write with them, they last a long time. I think they are by far the best pen on the market for the money!!

I am so attached to the feel and flow of the way this pen puts ink on paper. If I don't have one one of my Pilot Hi-Tec-C Gel Pens, I just can't write. Seriously.

Amazing pen to draw and write. I love everything about it. Lots of ink, super black ink, no fading, it's light and comfortable, no ink blob at the tip. It looks great, too.

This pen is the smoothest pen I've bought from Jetpens by far, and the textured grip isn't so bad! I will definitely restock when I run out of ink! :D

This is my absolute favourite writing pen. Fast drying ink and very smooth use. I've tried the thinner tip 0.3mm and it just doesn't compete with the 0.4 imo. Only criticism I have for this line of pens is the fragile tip. It only takes 1 drop (landing on the tip) to permanently damage it to render it unusable. These are also quite hard to find in my local stationery store and I am therefore glad/thankful that jetpens seem to always have them available.

These pens are great. I prefer the .4mm to the .3mm because the line is smoother and works well on a greater variety of papers. I find it to be much more reliable and smooth than Microns, however Microns are totally waterproof and I wouldn't recommend these for use with wet media unless you're looking for a water-soluble ink effect.

I like this series of gel pens. I have all 4 nib sizes. The nib, some say, is fragile but I don't believe that is the case, at least not in my experience. I don't have to press hard to get them to make a mark so I am less likely to break the nibs than someone with a heavy hand. If you treat these pens right they perform just fine.

The 0.25mm nib of course makes the finest line and the 0.5mm the widest. However, and it should come as no surprise, the smaller the nib the "rougher" the pen feels when writing with it. However the nibs being smaller in diameter than other pens their nib size they make for excellent drafting/drawing pens when you use a straight edge such as a triangle or ruler. Again one does not have to press hard to get these pens to produce a line.

The ink in these pens is dark and the pens write without skipping or the ink running out unevenly. The ink supply is typical of such pens, maybe a tad more generous. The clear plastic barrels have a ribbed surface for grasping near the nib. The are as comfortable as any plastic barreled pen or pencil. The only thing that could make these pens any better is to make the retractable.
