I was so excited when I got this pen. The body is beautiful and I love the
alpha gel. However, I learned the hard way that this pen could be improved.
The issue I had was more with the Jetstream ink. I have read a lot of really
good reviews, and I love Uni, so I decided to try. I am a very heavy-handed
writer, so when I started writing with it, this pen worked wonderfully for a
while. Then it completely stopped writing. I checked the ink, but I had only
used up a little of it. I think that because I wrote heavily, the ball in ink
refill got stuck inside the pen and stopped turning. Overall, I liked the ink,
but if you're a heavy-handed writing, try using one of Uni's gel ink pens rather
than the Jetstream series

the pink color and brushed metallic finish is really really pretty... writing is
oh so smooth.
however, it's no perfect. here are two of my complaints:
1. the alpha gel part is located too high. It is awkward to grab it up there to
2. though this is 0.7, i find the thickness of writing a bit too thin.
my quest for a perfect pen (in baby pink) continues... *sigh*

I absolutely love the original Alpha Gel series pens and also love the Jetstream
1.0 ink. So when I ordered this pen for which I combined both, I thought I would
have the perfect pen. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The style of the pen is
cool looking but the gel grip doesn't start until much higher on the pen than
the original series Alpha Gels. Therefore, in a normal grip my fingers are
holding the pen lower than the gel area. In order to take advantae of the gel
grip I have to hold the pen unusually high and it is not as comfortable. Uni
Ball - you are close with this pen but no banana!
