This multipen does take Jetstream ink, but only in the cartridges designed for
this pen. It will not accept the normal Jetstream ink cartridges.

I'm sorry this brand...
, February 14, 2012
I'm sorry this brand of ink/pen refills is very difficult to write with. The
only way that the ink comes out smoothly on .28 and .38 sizes (only ones I have
tried) is if you write with your pen straight up and down. If you don't write
with your pen absolutely perpendicular to the paper, then the tip scrapes
weirdly against the paper (you feel the edge that holds the rolling ball
scraping) and the ink does not come out evenly, you keep getting areas where the
line goes blank or goes light and it looks horrible.
I purchased Hi-tec-C Coleto at the same time to test them -- and those are
AMAZING. no matter what direction you write in, I bought .3 and .4 size tips and
both are amazing. For larger amounts of writing, the .4 is best because
otherwise the .3 is quite thin. The .3 is ideal for taking notes in margins and
having super neat handwriting which is very clear and awesome!!!!
Also, when you get the pencil cartridge, there's no eraser on the body or place
to put an eraser. So...kind of stinks.
Apart from that, I don't like that you can't see the colors of the pen on the
switches of ANY of these pens, you have to look at the stick inside by your hand
so you move your hand off, and then somehow try to match it to the right switch.
Sorry, I hate it.

I am a little disappointed with this pen. Reading the explanation of the pen, I
thought it accepted Jetstream pen cartridges. If someone can correct me, please
do! I really want to be corrected on whether Jetstream cartridges actually work
with these. Besides that, the mechanism that changes the pen colors is a little
nonresponsive. It may take a few tries. The pens that do work with this work
great! The five color barrel may be too large for people who like smaller
barrels, but that's a matter of taste. I like several colors at once! The pen
body is sleek, also.

Pretty versatile - I love taking notes with it in my science classes. Only
complaint I have is that the pen body is kind of fragile - granted, I got this
mid-January and the body is already cracked. Perhaps that happens due to natural
wear and tear, but I treat all of my stuff with care - it's only been in the
pens compartment in my backpack, but even then I don't go around chucking it
around.. =/ Considering I paid $3.75 for this, I'm quite disappointed that the
plastic was actually THAT cheap-quality..

Hi, I was wondering if you could put 5 of the mechanical pencil cartridges in
there, and fill them with colored lead, so you have a 5 function colored multi
pencil :D that would be super cool, and I have been looking for one for a long
time. Anyone know if it works?
