If I can give this a "No or zero star" rating, I would. I have a total of six
(6) of these refills (4, I bought extra and 2 I got with the pens since I bought
2 pens). Of the 6 of the refills, 4 have gone bad. For 3 of them, it's like
the roller ball tip disintegrated through use and then the only thing left was
the metal tip that houses the ball for the ink to run on, so you literally can't
write because it scratches the paper and the pen doesn't want to work anymore.
The last one that went bad, the ball disintegrated and the pen started leaking
everywhere! All of these that went bad didn't even go through half the ink
inside them so lots of ink wasted since I have to toss them. It's not worth
returning them to get replacements. I will not buy anymore of these refills.
BUT, I love the feel of the pen, so I now have to search for a refill that will
fit the SBTB-100H body. This will be a project in itself. If I could attach a
photo of the defective ones and the ink the bag has collected from spillage, I
would. Buyer beware.
