| This is the best multi...
, January 4, 2014
This is the best multi pen I have picked up in ages. It has put all of my
coletos to shame. I bought this one because I felt the coletos looked clunky and
a little cheesy. The Meister looked like a classier upgrade, and I have had very
good experiences with signo Dx ink in the past, so I gave it a try. For optimal
smoothness I recommend the 0.5mm ink refills. They write like a dream, and in my
opinion are much smoother than the hi-tec-c coleto inks. No skipping or bleeding
or running the pen to get the ink to start. Not the same experience I have had
with coletos. On to the pen. The pen is all metal and smooth. It's a little
thinner than what I'm used to, but that's fine. I had read a lot of negative
feedback about the window for inks and people complaining about how it takes
away from the look of the pen and is not functional or useful. NOT SO. The
window is very useful. The clip of the Meister pen points at the ink cartridge
that is currently in use and will line up perfectly with it. The clip is not
just a clip but an INDICATOR of Ink choice. So to the naysayers, I hope that you
can use the window properly now. Overall I love the Meister, and will definitely
pick up another one or two. Probably the gunmetal gray and mint green.

It's a worthwhile upgrade, but it's slippery. It's slimmer than the comparable
3-refill bodies, it looks classy, and--it doesn't rattle! It is designed to
always have a pen deployed, but you can stop at an in-between point for carry.
The pen can be hard to write with, because the shiny body is accordingly slick,
and the pen is somewhat top-heavy. I still prefer it over its Coleto
counterpart, though I wish Uni offered stylus and eraser refills.
| I'm sorry this brand...

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 you 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!!!!
