Just got the pen today...
Verified Purchase
Just got the pen today and found a couple things that I feel people should be aware of:

1) The body of the pen isn't aluminum like it is for the regular Alpha Gel, it's just chromoplastic as so many pens seem to be. It does, however, have a metal clip which I think is important having broken several on the all plastic Jetstreams.

2) It uses different refills than the standard Alpha Gel, it's good and bad I think, I had sadly purchased a few refills in advance, because I figured my Alpha gel would last me a while and I'd need refills eventually. The refills for the Alpha Gel Slim are much longer, but slimmer, so I'm not sure how long they will last. Otherwise, great pen!

this pencil is very slim...
Verified Purchase
this pencil is very slim and comfortable to hold, weight is perfect, but i was a bit disapointed with the squishyness of the grip. it was much firmer than i expected, although it was still squishier than all other grips. (maybe i had too high expectations...) and a bit expensive though...

Verified Purchase
I bought this one because I bought the mechanical pencil version and thought I would love this pen and much as the pencil. I was wrong...I do like the grip and the ink flow, but I don't like how my writing is different compared to the pencil. Overall, it's still a great pen.
