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.

It's a Jetstream in blue. In other words, best pen on the market with blue ink. Writes beautifully, with no skipping and a nice dark line. I use these on Rite in the Rain notebooks with good results. JetPens did a great job with delivery (as usual).

These are great writing pens with a nice crisp smooth line and good ink color. If you need a cheap toss around pen that your not afraid to loose, break or loan out, this could be it. The body is really light weight and the clicker rattles a bunch, but I kind of expect that from pens this affordable. I really preferred the same ink refills in the rubber bodied models. Those are much nicer to write with for extended periods. If you just need a cheap pen, with good fast drying ink, that's easy to write with, this is it. I had much less trouble with smearing than I do with the G2's and the ink is not quite as wet as the EnerGels. The 0.7mm writes much more like a 0.5mm in other brand refills as well. Great for smaller rulled notebooks.
