It's like any other ballpoint...
June 29, 2016
It's like any other ballpoint pen. For the design, it gets a 5 in terms of the
color, design, and build of the materials, but I was hoping it would have
something more than other ballpoints I've used in terms of the way it writes. I
wanted something I wouldn't have to wait on to dry in a certain notebook I have.
I just hoped "something" was a bit different with this ballpoint. I would give
it a 2 for writing quality.
It does skip ink. Sometimes, when I don't use it for minutes or hours on end and
then try to use it, I have to make a series of lines and scribbles to get the
ink flowing again. I once tried this for 4 min. on end, and the ink just
sputtered itself out when it wanted to despite the cartridge being new. This
occurred on day 1, and even after 3 weeks of me just forcing myself to use it
daily before completely giving up. When I did write, it was a weird combination
of smooth and scratchiness sometimes. I normally write in Kokuyo-paper notebooks
I buy from Jet Pens, and I've even tried using this with a soft shitajiki under
it, but to no avvail. This is why I originally stopped buying and using any
brand of ballpoints years ago.
