Pros:
- 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.

Cons:
- 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 like this pen. I don't know why everyone has been leaving bad reviews for the other colors. The only "issue" I have is that the point is every bit of "very fine." If you like more of a medium line, this is not your pen. However, it is not a big deal. Otherwise, the pen is comfortable and writes well.
