wow, what an awesome pen. believe the hype you read about the hitec-c line. i
compared this pen to it's .3 and .5mm siblings, as well as to it's uni signo dx
competitors (in .38, .28, and .5) on the following paper types
- doane graphed notepad
- moleskin lined notepad
- crappy ol' yellow notepad
one thing to say for sure: the .5mm pens were too wet and blotchy for me,
especially at smaller letter sizes. your mileage may vary, try them out!
as far as hitec vs signo dx, i find myself going back-and-forth. buy one or buy
both, you won't be sorry.
finally: i tend to write larger, sloppier letters during meetings and lectures
(when i need to scribble fast) and the finer-tip gel pens start to get scratchy
and annoying for me. in those cases, i'd reach for a jetstream or a crappy bic
ballpoint over these. however, during a brainstorming session or casual
note-taking, i'd go in circles with the hitec and signo DX pens - they're
amazing. buy them now. from jetpens.
