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.

HOWEVER...

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.

hm... every review that i've read says that this pen is completely skip-free. in order for mine not to skip, i have to make sure the paper is completely flat on the surface i am writing on.

pro: the ink. oh, the ink! it is delicious and black.
aesthetically beautiful. most japanese pens are
light, precise.

con: (skips... a lot)
not archival-safe. put a drop of rubbing alcohol on it, you'll see.

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.

I bought this one as a gift for my wife since she loved the version of this pen that I bought for myself. I think I was about to loose the other one to her before I grabbed it back. Smooth writing and a decently plentiful ink supply for extended writing day in and day out.

Unfortunately my wife lost this one after about a week of use, while at work. I hope someone else is enjoying it.

Smoothness: okay
Precision: Good for 0.5 mm
weight: light
Grip feeling: okay
Cushion: solid

Overall impression: Okay, for better comfort but less precise pen I recommend Pilot G-Knock Retractable Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm

Out of all my pens, this is not a pen I would write with often. I like this pen it doesn't skip, and it's good for 0.5. It's smooth, but not to smooth to where it would like just slide across the page if you don't hold it correctly. It would be a good pen to write fast with because it is really smooth.
