Great shade of purple....
Great shade of purple. Use it to right in my journal/diary. Love the feel. I gave it four stars because I would love to see it in .5. I personaly like the rexgrip more than the acroball .5. Should buy it!

The shade of purple on...
The shade of purple on this pen is a very nice one. It is a true purple with not a hint of pink. The same can be said for the ink. Most importantly, the pen lays down a nice and consistent line.
I donâ€™t know if Pilot used the Latin word â€œRexâ€ to indicate that this pen has the king of grips or not, but it is a very comfortable writing pen. In fact, it felt more comfortable to me then the similar-ish, Uni Jetstream. The Jetstream is my favorite line of all the pens Iâ€™ve bought at JetPens. However, I do find the diameter of the gripping section on it to be ever so slightly too thick or fat. If the Jetstream had the same gripping section diameter as the Rexgrip, it would be even better then it is now.
It is also worth mentioning that the gripping section of the Rexgrip (and the Jetstream for that matter) is not contoured as, for example, are the gripping sections of the Dong-A Any Ball and the Uni Laknock/Lakubo lines. These pens are comfortable but I prefer the un-contoured grips of the Rexgrip and Jetstream.
The cone at the bottom screws off but I donâ€™t know if refills are available or not. JetPens doesnâ€™t currently sell them if they are made.
For $1.15, the Pilot Rexgrip is definitely worth five stars. I should add that I also tried a 1.6 mm Rexgrip and didn't like it. Stick with the 0.7s. Highly recommended.
