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.

The 0.5 writes more like a 0.28. Super scratchy, very little ink flow. If you expect this to to write like a 0.5, you will be disappointed.

The body feels cheap and ugly. Grip is barely adequate. The tip seems fragile. Seems unnecessarily long, especially with the cap posted. Puzzled by the large following these pens have.

Great pen, though not for the price. It is everything people say of it. The lines are smooth and consistent, though it can sometimes take a few strokes to get the ink flowing. The cap posts with a positive click, and the refill holds a substantial amount of ink. If Uni-Ball didn't make a pen that was significantly cheaper and writes just as well (UM-100), this would be my go-to disposable gel pen.

Outstanding pen. Very smooth and precise. Comfortable rubber grip. Have used them for 15 years. 0.5 mm is a good size. I have found 0.4 mm to be too thin.

These are the cult pens that all Japanese are crazy about. One stroke and you will see why. Smooth and light. It's a joy to write with these. Love it!

Decent pen. Although the tip feels a bit weak. The line is not as crisp or sharp as I'd like it. It's got a nice black color, but not pitch black. Ink comes out very smoothly. The cap is a little annoying, since it can be spun around after being clicked into place.

This pen spoiled me. I'm an artist and I have never owned a pen like this. Now I feel inadequate using anything else. Amazing pen. Wish they weren't so hard to find though.

Get this for the case, it owns the other normal hi-tec-c without the rubber grip. Change the ink inside if you want it to become like 0.4 or 0.3.
