  Obviously these fit some..., March 23, 2011
Obviously these fit some people's writing style, but for me, they're too broad and wet---so wet that I have trouble with feathering and bleed-through on some papers where drier pens work fine. As one other minor nit, the inkview window is almost useless; there's only a window on one side, and with no way for light to come through, you can hardly see anything (not that I would mind this if I liked the ink flow, but it's just one more thing). I will give them that they're fast and smooth and don't tend to skip or dry out, but for the same price I would recommend the Platinum Preppy instead.

  I bought a pack of these..., September 28, 2010
I bought a pack of these on Amazon, and I must say I am very pleased with my results. The ink is a excellent dark and rich black. I really enjoy writing with it whenever I get chance.
The line is approximately 0.7mm thick. I'm not a fan of thick lines (0.5mm is my friend!), but if you enjoy bold and disposable fountain pens, picking this up would be an excellent idea.
And let me tell you, these pens last a LONG time. I used one for seven to eight months. Don't judge the ink by the clear window on the side! Even if it looks empty, there's a good month left in the pen.

This is a great pen for the price. . . actually, better than some I've paid much more for. It writes a smooth and juicy line, does not skip. I'm very pleased with it.

  Write very fast, very..., December 27, 2010
Write very fast, very wet, very thick. My favorite pen. In a blind pen test I would pick these cheapo pens over pens 10x the cost. Plus you can actually refill them by using padded pliers to pull out the nib/body. And there's nothing to cry over if you lose them.

  I really like this pen...., December 28, 2011
I really like this pen. It is the first fountain pen I have ever used. I really enjoy writing with it. I plan on buying another the next time I order something from Jetpens.
  I found one of these..., July 30, 2014
I found one of these babies laying in the driveway of an abandoned house. It must have been laying there quite a good time since the outside has quite an amount of scratches. The inside however works like new. I love this pen, it holds a special place in my heart right next to my Parker Jotter. It is utilitarian, never leaks, looks a lot classier, and writes with a lot more character than a regular ball point. It often surprises folks when I hand it to them to sign things. It writes very smooth and very wet, no skipping at all. On that same page, or maybe a different page. (haha) As with any liquid ink pen that writes wet, you will have to consider paper choice when writing. Thinner lower quality paper will bleed and feather badly. It will be replaced when it runs dry. (or I may try to refill it as another user cleverly suggested)
  Writes well, no skipping,..., September 4, 2013
By drl...
Writes well, no skipping, nice ink, not fussy about the angle at which I hold the pen. At the price I have no fear of losing it, the way I do with my "nice" fountain pens, so I actually use it. My only complaint is that it's not refillable.

By ric...
After eschewing Fountain Pens for many years for various (and very tenuous reasons) I bought a couple Preppys at a local Pen Store (I had to drive 3 hours to find one...) and I found I actually liked writing with them. Looking at reviews of "Beginner" Fountain Pens I kept getting confronted with the Pilot Varsity. So I added one to my order. When it arrived I found it nice to hold and well balanced. Writing with it was very nice. It's really smooth and lays down a nice dark line. The only time I had any issues writing with it was when I was writing on very bad or on the backside of heavily marked paper. In this instance I have had Ballpoint and Gel pens do the same! I'm going to try taking this to work, where I have to write a whole lot, and see how this handles. I am already looking into a "Next Level" Fountain Pen!
   The pen is okay. I don't..., May 30, 2013
The pen is okay. I don't really like it because it bleeds through paper more then other inks, and sometimes it skips when you write the ink stops for a second. I do like it because it is a good pen for notetaking. I'm a high school student so i take alot of notes, and don't like to use my expensive pens because they might get lost or stolen off my desk. Yea kids steal pens i got my G2 pens stolen last week. Although if you want to use a fountain pen for other kinds of writing. I suggest you get a pen that is refillable like to G2 Metropolitan pen it comes with a converter. You will save money instead of just tossing this pen when it runs out of ink.

By ata...
This product is quite affordable and good enough for the price, but the line it makes is really heavy and it bleeds quite a bit. It's best used with heavier paper which is more expensive and would probably be used in conjunction with a higher quality pen. I bought two of these but I haven't used them much because of how much they bleed.

By roqz
My dad got very sad and angry at the idea of a disposable fountain pen. Is like some oxymoron, usually fountain pens are forever, but nowadays we can find anything in the market.

I got a bit sad at the thickness of the produced lines, very thick and not useful for my cursive script.

By ata...
This is a wonderful disposable fountain pen, and of really high quality for the price. It is extremely wet and thick, so keep that in mind when you're considering buying it. It bleeds through paper really quickly, unless you have high quality paper.

Very impressed! write very smoothly with bold lines. to bad it disposable :(.
  I'm honestly quite shocked..., August 25, 2010
By Dal...
I'm honestly quite shocked at the high ratings this pen has received. The nib is the kind with a round tip, so you can't vary the line thickness at all. It's a shame, too, because these are the thickest fountain pens I've ever used. Finally, the ink flow is ridiculously heavy, making it horrible for note-taking because your words bleed together and often bleed through the paper as well. Maybe you could use these for writing on posters, but on plain notebook paper it's just a pain.

I'll edit this review if I eventually find a good use for them, but for now they're a waste of space.
  nice pen, writes just..., May 21, 2010
nice pen, writes just as well if not better than much more expensive pens. I'm gonna have to try to refill this pen, but I wish Pilot would just make this pen easily refillable with cartridges. it's so fantastic you don't want to throw it away!
  Very smooth and dark..., December 10, 2009
Very smooth and dark ink. It almost feels marker-like over the paper...not scratchy. It's a touch broader of a stroke than I'd like for regular writing, but that's my only beef with it.
  Great pen for the money,..., September 30, 2009
Great pen for the money, however, it's only disposable if you throw it away! A pair of thin needle nose pliers at a 90 degree angle close to the barrel and a little finesse and this pen is refillable with any ink you want. Do this operation over a sink and maybe wear and old shirt as the feed will throw a little ink as you pull out the assembly.
  For the price, and seeing..., September 16, 2009
For the price, and seeing that this it is disposable, I'm quite impressed about how well this pen performs. No ink blots, very minimal bleeding, and a sturdy build are just a couple of great things about this pen. On a few types of papers however, I've noticed that the ink does feather a little bit.

On a side note, I never saw a nib size listed. Upon receiving the pen, I noticed the nib marked with an _M_. The nib width is just a little on the big side for me, but the performance of this pen outweighs this fact, and I'll get used to it soon enough.
  It's good to see these..., September 15, 2009
It's good to see these pens here. I bought two packs and used them all up, when I went back to Office Max they didn't have them any more. They don't carry cute pens any more. I will be buying these again.
  I was very skeptical..., June 22, 2009
I was very skeptical at first, because it is disposable. I can't believe how well they write, they don't leave ink blots. I have also carried it in my backpack and it never once broke (if you knew me you would understand how hard I am on my products). I was fearful because I have other pens explode on me.

The downsides: the pen is not refillable, there is no cartage. The ink is great for 95% of paper. The other 5% it may bleed, not though, but around the letters.

I do recommend this pen!!

this pen is excellent. smooth ink flow you'd expect from a fountain pen, convenient small size. a definite fave of mine
