I really enjoy this pen....
January 24, 2009
I really enjoy this pen. I received a version of this pen (the 1.0mm) at work in
a bag of 'green' products from our office supplier. I was surprised to find that
I really liked the balance, size and smooth writing quality of it. I'm pretty
picky about ballpoints, and have really loved the Uniball Jetstream series. But
this pen competes very well with them.
For me, the barrel is perfectly sized with a nice taper, and a rubber grip that
is not too sticky. That really bugs me when I feel that I can't rotate or move
around the pen. This barrel is perfect.
The ink flows very well and the writing action is smooth. Now it isn't a Uniball
Jetstream in terms of ink flow and smoothness, but it is close.
I really like the 1.0mm pen (but that isn't offered by JetPens for some reason).
The 0.7mm is fantastic and very precise. Surprisingly the 1.0mm is smooth and
precise. That's where this pen trumps the Jetstream. The 1.0 is more precise
than the Jetstream 1.0, as is the 0.7mm.
I enjoy it and if you like a good ballpoint, I think you'll like this as well.
