Nice light pen, I like...
Nice light pen, I like the barrel width and the way the ridges function as a grip. Feels nice in the hand. What disappointed me a little was that I was hoping this pen would basically be interchangeable with the Pilot B2P, which can take gel refills or Jetstream ballpoint refills. It isn't--its refill is shorter and narrower. The pen writes fine as it comes, it's not my favorite but it's certainly acceptable. I am currently trying to modify an acroball refill to fit (the spring fits correctly but it's too wide). If I can get that to work, I'll be a happy camper. If not, I'll still use the pen but will be on the lookout for a better refill.

The Pilot Petball pen...
The Pilot Petball pen was a great find.
I live in the U.S. I have found a similar one, which is pretty much the same is the B2P Pilot pen. However, what made me buy Petball one is for it's finer tip. The B2P pen uses 1.0 mm tip, while this one uses a 0.7 mm tip.
Like all Pilot ballpoint pens, this one also writes smoothly, there has been no skips so far, and I'm almost about to run out! I have to buy the refill soon. It's my everyday go-to pen now. It's great for writing notes, since I have small handwriting, it makes my notes look neater.
It also works well for writing something in Japanese or Chinese. Because it has such a finer tip than the B2P ballpoint pens.
I would suggest it to everyone who is looking for an everyday go-to pen.
P.S. I also love eco-friendly/recycled products, and I think this is up to par to the other recycled products out there :)
