"Skipping" never happened to my Jetstream pen... It always writes smooth.
Jetstream is unique, functional pen I fell in love with. Never smear, best ink flow, so smooth. You cannot go back to regular oil-based ball point pens after you experience Jetatream series.

You know, regular pens use gravity to make smooth ink flow. You shouldn't use regular pens in horizontal position, (such as writing upside down, marking on a wall calendar, etc.) because the air gets in through the pen-tip, and it eventually causes line skipping. Exceptions are those "space pens." Power Tank has this function of "pressured gas pushing ink" technology.

Con of Jetstream pen is bleedthrough... it doesn't, when you write, then after couple of months, letters start showing oily residue & mild bleedthrough. So it is not great for journaling, but excellent for business use, daily use, student use.

This style and size of writing is my absolute favorite. I am a pen fanatic! My first Uni 0.5 mm pen was given to me and it was from Japan. I spent a month searching online a store that carried these specific pens and was absolutely ecstatic when I found JetPens! If you like thin pen writing this is your pen. It's doesn't not bleed or smudge! However k do go through them fast because I use it daily. One pen can last me a month sometimes less. I am definitely ordering again!

I've always wanted a ballpoint pen that writes as nicely as gel pen but not as messy. This one is amazing! It's the perfect one I've been looking for.

The signature Jetstream ink is so rich and dark, it's almost like a gel pen but it's a ballpoint, which I LOVE!! The colors are so cute too.


It skips sooo much, it's driving me crazy. I keep having to retrace over all the skipping whenever I write notes. The 1.0 Jetstream RT I got elsewhere isn't as bad as this 0.5 but there is skipping, nonetheless.

I really really wanted to like these pens. I really did. All I can say is, good thing I only bought one.

2 stars for the dark gel-like ink and cute barrel.

This pen puts down a tidy thin line but I found that it skipped some unless I put the paper down on a flat surface and used a certain amount of pressure. The 0.7mm version didn't have that problem but the line wasn't as delicate.

Great pen, beautiful color and writes beautifully. Guess that's why I got all of them except the blue. the red is also amazing, bold and bright.
