Pros: - Like all the...
- Like all the 0.38 pens in this range it has a nice fine nib and leaves a delicate but clear line without being wavery or scratchy. It might feel a bit too fastidious for writing but is fine for drawing, which is why I bought it.
- This is meant to be a dark red but is clearly more of a purple. Not even a coolly-toned maroon, but rather a warm, slightly neutral purple. :/
- Also it's the first Pilot Juice gel pen I've bought that isn't properly water resistant. When going over the lines with a light paintbrush and water, the colour did bleed, and gave a faint (purple) wash. Most of the line stayed put though which is better than nothing, but not as good as I'd hoped.
Not all pens from this range perform equally, so experimentation with different colours seems necessary. I bought a few Pilot Juice gel pens and this was the only disappointment among them. The 'coffee brown however' was perfect.

I've loved my Sarasa...
I've loved my Sarasa gel pens but wanted to see how the Juice stacks up against them. I'm very happy with the ink color, and the flow. No problems whatsoever. I will say though that I still much prefer the look of my Sarasas (love the color on the clip whereas the Pilot clip is clear), but if that doesn't bug you, this pen's a good choice!

Lovely color and smooth...
Lovely color and smooth writer, until it stopped flowing completely, about 20% of the way through the refill.
I love the clip though, so I just put a .38 G2 refill in it and kept trucking.

A little scratchy at times but the color is wonderful.
