This is a very decent pen. Shockingly consistent and MUCH better than a G2. I thought it'd be the favorite pen of my blue-black gel grab-bag for a while, but a few niggles demoted it. While consistent, the ink is too blue for me, and not particularly contrasty. Though the finished line looks smooth, the tip feels slightly scratchy and inconsistent across the page. The clip is a clone of the Zebra Sarasa Clip, but not quite as good.

This is a good, versatile all-around pen and is easy to use, but I found the Uni-ball UM-151 produced clearer notes, and the Zebra Sarasa has a better body, writes better, and is just as versatile.

Japanese fine-point pens will be the death of me, but it will be a beautiful ending to my life. I first encountered the Pilot Juice series at work (I am an instructor at a tutoring center), when our lovely boss gave us new correcting pens. I fell in love with the neatness and super-fine points of these babies, not to mention that they write wonderfully (no skipping!!!). They may use gel ink, but the dry time is pretty fast given that they're extra fine; I've never had any issues with smudging. If you are an artist, they're perfect for quick sketches! The color also builds up, so you can create many layers of color with just one pen. I ended up buying five of them from JetPens. Here's a tip for purchasing some of your own:

Individual pens and pen sets have the same price per pen. If you like to choose your colors, I recommend picking your own favorites and just buying them separately. If you like pen sets, then choose the pen sets. I personally only chose the colors I really wanted at the beginning, but I will most likely buy some more soon. Also, as I did buy individual pens, you'll see this review on a select few colors on this site.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys fine-point pens.

Very good writing experience with this pen. Decent version of blue/black with slightly finer line and lighter tone than a Zebra Sarasa 0.4mm blue/black. Large ink capacity and low price make this pen a winner. Lots of colors to choose from and pigmented ink permanence.

A great pen that write smoothly and has a nice color. Like the other Juice pens however, it can break pretty easily if dropped multiple times. Otherwise it works just fine.
