When I first found JetPens...
Verified Purchase
When I first found JetPens (what a glorious day that was), I knew I had to try some of these Uni-bal Jetstreams. I was hoping these would be my holy grail of pens, and that I would be an avid, loyal fan happily ever after. There's nothing really wrong with these pens and I definitely can see why people are in love with them, but unfortunately, they've been delegated to sit as back-ups in my pencil case for the time being. I did, somehow, find the purple ink to run smoother than the black-ink version I bought (same 0.5mm tip) but ultimately, I loved the smoothness of a ballpoint so I reverted back to those in various forms. I tend to write pretty quickly, and don't always have thick paper on hand, and sometimes only one, so during those times, the scratchiness of the 0.5mm really didn't help me out. Generally on top of a couple of decent papers, these went very smooth, but my notebooks were pretty cheap so they'd often skip or scratch too much. They definitely look like a gel ink, but I think I've come to accept that as much as I want to, fine-tipped even gel-esque pens won't work for me (I've been using Jetstream's 0.7mm refills which unfortunately don't have a great range of color like the gel-inks).

The body is very comfortable and the clicker feels really sturdy! It's light and thin (which might be comfortable with people with bigger hands than mine).

The color of the ink...
Verified Purchase
The color of the ink is very much a plum rather than a true purple. Overall, the pen is ok. The writing is slightly scratchy, but it's not horrible. I haven't had issues with ink flow, though, which is nice.
