I like this pen a lot....
I like this pen a lot. Writes reliably without any skipping on any paper I've tried. It does great on a single sheet of paper on a hard surface, which plays havoc with my Jetstream pens (they write like a dream otherwise).
I love how compact it is. I can carry it in a pants pocket without it becoming a nuisance or tearing up my clothes.
I would have rated it a five but for a couple of things:
1) The body of the pen is sort of rubberized, which is fine except that it gets dirty and can't really be wiped clean. My white one looks pretty dingy.
2) The spring seems a little weak on the extend/retract mechanism. I have to keep it extended and ready for eight hours at a time and it seems to be leaving the spring mechanism a little compressed and loose when the pen is retracted.
Finally, and this is my problem not a problem with the pen, it's not at all obvious how how the ink cartridge would be removed and replaced, unless you just yank it out. But I am unwilling to try it on a $10 pen for fear of destroying it . I am sure the folks at JetPens will be happy to instruct me whenever I get around to asking.
