I've had my Rapid Pro...
, February 27, 2012
I've had my Rapid Pro for about a month now and am, overall, quite pleased. I
was not overwhelmed by the ink the pen came with. I replaced it with a Parker
Gel refill and am much happier with the writing. The pen is a joy to write with.
Great weight. Lovely texture. Looks sharp. I have a few minor complaints. The
first is that the clicky on the top of the pen feels a bit loose. No real
problems with it yet, but it doesn't give the most confidence for long-term
durability. The second is that the Rapid Pro is just not as nice feeling a
writing implement as the Rotring 600 pencil. I miss the crisp lines and narrow
styling of 600. The Rapid Pro is just slightly larger in diameter and the
hexagonal shape is slightly rounded at the edge. Otherwise, I anticipate this
being a pen that I will use for years to come.

My wife bought me this pen for Christmas (2013) at my request and I absolutely
love it!!!!!!! The hefty wieght of the pen feels very nice in your hand while
the ink itself (it comes with blue) is extremely smooth and brilliant in color.
I'm using it on Field Notes that have waterproof/synthetic paper and it is 100%
smudge-proof. Along with my Fisher space pen, this is now my newest EDC pen.
BOTTOM LINE - you want this pen in your writing quiver.
I purchased this pen...
, March 22, 2012
I purchased this pen about 3 months ago, and since then it has become the pen I
go to for everyday writing. Prior to this pen, I was using the Retro 51
Hex-o-matic Black Ballpoint pen. My main complaint about this pen was that it
felt scratchy when I moved the pen across the page. This is not the case with
The ink quality is smooth and bold. The weight is perfect, and the textured
grip feels great between my fingers. My only complaint is that it takes a
moment for the ink to start flowing. Whereas, the ink immediately began to flow
from the Retro 51 Hexomatic.
The speed at which the ink begins to flow from the pen is less of an issue with
me as is the feeling of moving the pen across the page.
I confidently give this pen 5/5 stars!
