I was extremely surprised at how wonderful this pen writes. When I ordered this pen, despite all the good reviews, I was a little wary due to the not-so-elaborate look of the pen. To my surprise, the pen worked wonderfully! Just as others have said, this pen is extremely smooth, even when writing on just a thin piece of paper on a wood desk. The ink flows nicely and the pen does not skip. Although the grip isn't really a grip at all, it's quite comfortable to hold. I was also a little fearful of the 0.7mm size because I prefer thin, 0.5mm pens most of the time, but the lines were very close to that of the 0.5 Jetstream I ordered. The ink color is quite appealing as well. Most other blue pens do tend to have the light, faded blue color, but this one has a very dark and bold blue, not quite the dark blue of a gel ink or liquid pen [I don't like the latter very much]. For anyone looking for a simple, light, smooth blue pen, this is a great pen to get.

Smooth as silk. Not as nice as writing with a nice fountain pen, but arguably better than writing with a mediocre one. A nicely saturated line, and the ink dries almost immediately, which is a bonus for lefties. Take the refill out and put it in your Karas Kustoms Retrackt or Render K (G2 model), or any other nice pen body that accepts the Pilot G2 refill, and you've got the best quick-drying, non-smearing, bleed-free, and overly-hyphenated writing experience you could ever want.

On a recent trip to Tokyo, my manager bought one of these. He loaned it to me and I was extremely impressed with the pen. I bought a handful of them to bring back to the states. I still am impressed with the style and comfort of the barrel and I don't think I have ever seen the quality of writing in an inexpensive pen. The pens that are similar here in the states is not as good as this and I am glad to have found that they are available here on this site. I will be ordering more as I lose my current stash or give them to friends.

Jet stream ball points are the best. I just wish they start making the BLX in .07

This is my go-to pen. Feels like a quality product in your hand but isn't heavy, the clicking mechanism feels sturdy, no rattling at all, and it writes beautifully. Super smooth and clean with almost no smudging. I did notice that when I write really small, like in the margine of a textbook, the ink can get a little heavy and messy looking, but thats usually when I reach for the 0.38 version. Overall, this pen makes me very happt.

I bought this for signing checks - I wanted a heavier line than the .38. Very smooth, does what I bought if for. Most of my work I prefer a finer line, but this is very consistent with no blobbing or streaking. This and the .5 would be excellent for drawing

Not my favorite pen, but probably my favorite ballpoint. The grip ergonomics are questionable, and the pen is ok to look at, but the refill is really quite superior.

the ball rolls really smoothly, the ink goes down saturated and dark without any skipping, unevenness, or blobbing. It still writes like a ballpoint pen, in that the line width is related to how far you press the pen tip into the paper, but a smooth dark line can be achieved with very little pressure.

I still prefer a gel pen or fountain pen for a nice luscious line, but ballpoints are nice for writing on a variety of surfaces that cause wetter inks to smear.

no wonder Jetstream pens are so highly recommended.
