After 2 years of storage...
After 2 years of storage I picked this pen up and started writing with it...no
problems. The ink flow is smooth and no leaking or blotting on the paper. I'm
writing in a cheapy Norcom Basic Notebook. The ink can smudge minimally if you
rub your finger over it immediately after writing, but 1/2 a second later it's
bone dry and permanently set. The ink does show through my cheap notebook paper
(that may just be the cheap paper) enough to be able to read every word through
the back, but not enough to interfere with understanding what you've written on
the other side of the paper. That's been my experience with the Pilot Precise
V5. An excellent pen for the price.
