, August 1, 2011
The ink is a relatively light red, so it's not great for correcting stuff or
drawing your attention to something you might underline in red. It's more of a
fashion color than the traditional red pens. Still, I really liked the clarity
of its clean lines and enjoyed the rarely-globby ink.
The pen is somewhat of a mixed bag, but overall I have had positive experiences
with the Jetstream Color line. First, I love the relatively thin diameter and
the fact that there is no grip. I love the white barrel color and the accurate
barrel representation of the ink color. The plunger is springy and satisfying
(perhaps my favorite part of the pen itself). One problem I noticed is that if
you unscrew the bottom and screw it back on too tight, there might be a lot of
tension and cause cracking down the barrel, as there was in my first Jetstream
Color. (Just be aware and don't screw it on too tight!)
