These pens actually improved my otherwise atrociously illegible and embarrassing handwriting! Didn't think that was possible! I find the 0.5 nib hits the sweet spot. Not too thin so as to be scratchy and not to broad to be messy. My theory: the fine nib slows down the hand to allow more control over the handwriting, otherwise the hand slops all over the paper contributing to sloppy handwriting. Wish Pilot would make a 0.5 blue refill for the Cavalier! I have several 'go to' pens I use daily but this one tops the list. I agree with the comment that experimentation is needed with different nib sizes from the various brands because 0.5 for one brand is not the same as 0.5 from another brand. At least that's my experience.

I tried out both the 0.5mm and the 0.4mm Hi-Tec-C. The 0.4mm pen writes smoothly. The 0.5mm pen writes very smoothly. They both are fine pens.
The cap is tight fitting, and requires a bit of force to remove.
