Verified Purchase
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 write
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*

Verified Purchase
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!

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

Verified Purchase
The entire Jetstream line of pens are hands down the smoothest writing instrument I've tried (and I've tried MANY). This pen is the creme of that crop! Unbeatably smooth writing, dark lines and a really nice casing. My only complaint with this pen is that the gel grip, while being very comfortable, is a slightly translucent white. After some time the area has begun to look somewhat "dirty", unfortunately.

I was a little skeptical of the squishy grip, but once by fingers adjusted, I love the grip :)
plus, the jetstream ink is just too awesome.
I used to be gel-pen person, but now I am okay writing with a ballpoint, as long as it is a jetstream :)
