, August 22, 2013
This pen has rapidly become my go-to carry pen in my collection. It writes
practically the instant it touches paper, regardless of the circumstances.
I've taken it on numerous surveys and field trips for work and leisure, and in
the wet, the cold, and the heat, it's delivered on being able to write
practically everywhere. Admittedly, it's not as universally consistent with
more expensive pens such as the Fischer Space Pen and variants, with the line
flagging a bit in the more extreme conditions, but given the price, I'm not
afraid to use the pen for fear of damaging or losing it!
Sizewise, it's a little bulkier than it's narrower 0.5mm cousin. But it has a
much more substantial grip to it than those pens, which makes the pen easier to
hold in my larger-sized hands. The plastic body is fairly tough, and will take
a good deal of abuse, though I've had the clip snap on one pen after an
ill-advised attempt to hook the pen over too many pages in a notepad.
Also, in regards to performance in the wet, I would say that the thinner gauge
can make things a bit easier to tear on cheaper paper, so if you expect to write
a lot in damp conditions, you may want to look at the 1.0mm version, instead.
In fact, if you invest in this pen, you'll probably want to buy at least 2 or 3
at a time. I can guarantee you, people will try to walk off with the pen.
I've even had a police officer try to take one from me, after he spent a
frustrated night at a cold accident scene, trying to fill out paperwork with a
half-dozen other ballpoints that just wouldn't work. (I ended up giving it to
him - remember what I said about buying 2 or 3?)

Not as smooth as my jetstream, but very smooth none the less. wrote right of the
package. rubber grip is firm(which is still extremely comfortable) and of better
quality than many many pens out there.
great pen for taking notes...

, January 11, 2014
This is a little too fine a point for me to use for every day, but the grip and
feel of the pen are awesome. If I could get a refill larger than 1.0 (like
really really broad) I might use it more often, but it's not a deal-breaker. I
keep it in my bag for those times I need to sign a receipt (not all pens work
well on that thermal paper, and I don't like to use the germ-infested pens that
retailers keep at the counter). It just feels great in my hand; I'm going to
keep my eyes open for a larger refill.

Maybe I just got a bad piece, but the ink skips. Waste of a pen for me.

, September 9, 2013
I work for a construction materials testing lab, and my hands are constantly
grimey with dirt, mud, concrete or asphalt. Naturally my pens take abuse and get
dropped/covered in all sorts of nasty material(s). With my old pens failing way
before the inks gone out (bulk box bic pens) I was in search for a more rugged
pen, but nothing too outlandish for the lab/job site. This pen exceeds my

, May 17, 2012
Ok, this pen writes in normal conditions as good as any regular ballpoint. Not
as good as the Jetstream/Surari/Vicuna, but not too far off. I bought this pen
+ 1 refill for use in my job. I work security and I find myself standing
outside in all weathers writing people in an out using security logs. This will
definitely be my "heavy weather" pen.

Super pen. I like the grip and the fine point is great for my needs. This
seems to have the same technology as the Tombow Airpress.

Excellent pen! Writes no matter what. I really like this pen and would recommend
it to anyone. It is comfortable to write with and has a high quality ink. I
would rate the ink as just short of the jetstream ink! And if you know the
jetstream line you know what that means. An awesome pen at a great price! Buy

Just got this pen the other day, what a awsome pen. I tested it out writing on
paper with some water on it, it worked just like it said. and also was writing
upside down for a while and the ink just keep writing, usually a regular pen
would stop writing. One of my favorite pens now to use.
