I absolutely love the Jetstream line of pens! I was introduced to Jetstream after picking up a promotional pen at a scientific conference. I was immediately impressed with how smoothly it wrote, and how dark the resulting line was. You get used to how nicely these write, but then if you switch to another pen you can immediately see how much fainter other pens are. These pens always write, down to the last drop of ink. After using the promotional pen for a while I was so impressed, I went online to find the exact pen and that's how I found Jetpens!

The Jetstream Basic Series are my favorites for everyday writing. The rubber grip is on the hard side but comfortable, and the size is just right for me. I use this pen, and the red pen for corrections, on a daily basis. In fact, I bought a whole bunch of them in black, blue and red and gave them out to my family so that they could try them out as well.

A quick note to anybody that may experience skipping. If you write on plasticized paper at some point, I believe that this can gum up the small ball at the end of the pen. I had this happen once, and had to switched in a new refill because the pen became unreliable.

So after reading many blog posts stating that Jetstream pens were so good, I finally ordered one. I didn't have high expectations, since my taste in pens seems to be uncommon: I do not press hard and write pretty small, so I like fine point pens with minimal ink flow, yet they absolutely must not skip. I used to use roller ball pens before going to Japan in the late 1990s and discovering Hi-Tec-C 0.4 pens, which quickly became my favorite. I tried my share of expensive pens of all kinds, but found that they intimidate me and make me uncomfortable. Besides, fountain pens (though they might be fun to play with) are too high-maintenance for me.

Well, after writing a few words with my new Jetstream Sport 0.7, it was clear that this is a serious contender for the title of best pen ever. For the first time since the 1990s, the Hi-Tec-C meets a worthy challenger. Smooth, dark lines, absolutely no skipping, and quick drying. One advantage it has over the Hi-Tec-C is that its point is not as fragile. I'm not afraid of dropping it or lending it to a friend.

I don't really understand the "0.7" rating of this pen, it writes a finer line than many 0.5 pens, and seems to be on par with a Hi-Tec-C 0.4.

As a g-2 snob (I have all the colors and I love using them to grade papers :D) I bought this pen on a whim curious and looking for some other pens so that way I can experiment around. I got this in my last order and I am genuinely impressed. It's a pen I don't have to think about, it just writes and feels very friction-less. I'm planning on buying a few more in my next order as this is going to be my notes taking pens. I'll still keep my g-2's around though. For they supplement my only complaint about these pens, that they're only offered in 3 colours.

I don't love but I really like this pen. The 0.7 writes really well and it writes really smoothly. The grip is nice. It doesn't skip and it is very precise. It body looks professional. It also doesn't smear or leak.! IT ALSO write like a gel pen!(: What else could someone look for in a pen.?

This ballpoint glides like a gel pen! Super impressed with the performance of my Jetstream. I get the gel pen experience with the lab solvent proofing of ballpoint! :) The .5 mm is also awesome, a tiny bit scratchy by comparison.

This is a wonderful pen! I have used the 0.5mm, 0.7mm and 1.0mm versions - they are all truly excellent. The ink never balls up for me - ink always flows smoothly and evenly - and it dries almost instantly (this is important for lefties).

I've bought a gang of these pens for my coworkers - they all love their pens and thanked me for the gift. I see them all using them now too. ^_^
