I was tempted by this many times and never got one until now. I am thoroughly
impressed. Slimmer than I expected, precisely 9.5mm for most of the body, then
slightly widening to 10.3mm at the tip. The grey body has a finish that is very
slightly iridescent depending on the angle you look. It is also a bit easy to
scratch. But nothing's perfect. It's also not priced too high. Love it.
First impression upon...
, November 22, 2010
First impression upon receiving this pen was that it looks just like the
picture. I was surprised at how light it was. The feel is thin and cheap
generally, but the mechanism is very solid and nice. The pens that shipped with
it were not good at all in my opinion. Based on the suggestion of another
reviewer, I ordered some other colors/widths from Colorado Pen. This pen is very
slim, which I like. I received another pen from Amazon which I like a lot
better, and it has four pen selections:Yafa Quad-Point 4 Function Pen, Green
Grip. This pen is solid and has the fourth slot, which is cool. I swapped out
the stylus with one of the pens I bought from Colorado Pen. It takes the same
refills as the pen I am currently reviewing.

This is a very cool pen, with a great switching mechanism. For my taste, this
pen could've stood to be a bit heavier weight (I'm not always easy on my pens),
and somewhat more solidly made, but the body IS solid metal, and the switching
mechanism is really the most innovative I've ever come across.
As far as refills go, being an artist I like to have a wide selection of colors
available to me. For this pen, you'll be hard-pressed to find many refills that
are not what seems to be the standard 0.7mm multipen refill size. The ballpoint
refills that fit this pen are, of course, the ones made for it, Hi-Tec-C SLIM
refills (and no other Hi-Tec-C refills), any refills made specifically for the
Cross Tech 3 multi pen, or any other multi or mini pen refill that measures 2
5/8" long by 1/16" wide/high/across. Monteverde refills that will fit this pen
ARE available at colorado pen, and in a GREAT selection of colors (purple, red,
pink, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, blue black, black, AND brown) and
two tip widths (medium, which is approximately 0.7mm, and broad, which is
probably 0.9mm). If you're looking for fine point refills, Levenger also offers
multi pen refills (which they've since renamed "mini pen refills") that will fit
this pen and other multi pens. You're stuck with black, red, or blue ink with
them, but they do at least offer medium AND fine point refills that will work
beautifully with this pen.
If you're looking for a great, all around go-to pen for both drawing and
writing, you really can't beat the cool factor of this one with the weighted
switch mechanism, and the low price!So whaddaya waiting for?! ; )..

You can use Hi-Tec-C Refills for this! Awesome! Very nice looking. Good weight.
Not really overpriced if you think about it, I saw a similar multipen on
Levenger.com for $75. Buy $3 of lead, or a Hi-Tec-C Refill so you can get free
