I waited a long time before deciding to buy this, mostly because of the price relative to other style fit bodies and because of the previous review about not being able to see the color of the ink barrels. I'm glad I ended up buying it. You can definitely see which ink you're using through the clear window, even if the ink runs low, because the refills themselves have color printed on them that reaches to the level of the window. I personally found the weight to be just right, and I don't think that it looks or feels very cheap. Also, one of the things I didn't like about the design in the picture is the gold rings on the body. However, that's actually just part of a sticker, so the body is just one solid color, which I think looks much nicer, especially for the other colors that don't match so well with gold.

My one gripe with this body is its mechanism. The top portion that twists to select the cartridge doesn't turn 360 deg, which means that if you want to go from color A to color C, you have to go through B (if that makes any sense). Compare to other refills, in which you you can just quickly select the color. Another thing about the mechanism is that in order to retract the cartridge, you twist the barrel to a position between that of 2 cartridges, which is actually not a very stable position. I can imagine that if the pen gets thrown in a bag, the barrel can easily get rotated so that one of the refills gets selected, ruining the refill and getting ink all over my bag.

I spotted this pen while recently browsing JetPens. I'm addicted to the Jetstream series and have a bunch of multi-pens and single-ink pens, as well as a customized Hard Lock that accepts the Jetstream multi-pen refills. I experimented with the first line of Style Fit multi-pens and could never shake the feeling that they were somewhat cheap-feeling. I had a lot of customization options, but a plastic pen will usually feel too light in the hand.

I was excited to see a metal-body Jetstream multi-pen, but this pen has one glaring flaw which became obvious when I put the refills in:

You can't see how much ink is left in the refills.

The clear plastic gap in the middle is only partly useful for seeing the remaining ink supply and for seeing which ink you're currently using. You can't tell the ink color in use directly; you have to see the other two ink colors to determine which one you're using. (Other multi-pens have this same problem.)

Despite being made of metal, this pen feels insubstantial. I know there's a certain advantage in a lightweight pen, and this pen is inexpensive so it's not supposed to feel substantial. But I for one wouldn't mind if Uni/Mitsubishi came out with an upscale multi-pen body in the Style Fit series. (My ideal multi-pen would be a Zebra Sharbo X that can accept Jetstream refills.)

I would score this pen higher if there was a broader selection of body colors.

I really wanted this pen to be five stars. It does look gorgeous in gun metal gray, very stylish and quite impressive. I also totally love the way the Style Fit refills write (I am particularly fond on the 0.5mm Black/Brown) and I love the fact that I can combine different line width, gel and ballpoints and I can even get over the fact that you really cannot see the ink color or how much ink you have left through the little window as the other reviewer remarked. With only three colors, I can remember what to expect at each position.

I do wish that the "neutral" would be a bit more pronounced, maybe give it is's own "stop", as right now it kind of just hovers between either two color selections.

And while the Style Fit refills typically don't last very long, that is absolutely NO problem with this pen because you can't actually use it to write with. The grip is simply to slippery (if you want to replicate the feel, grab your most slippery pen, cover your hands with liberal amounts of hand lotion and give it a try - actually, you will probably have a better grip). One reviewer remarked he added some sleeve, I am just not sure if I would like the look. I will try to find a jeweler and try to see if I can get some ridges engraved, so I can actually use the pen, although it will probably cost me more than the pen itself. Maybe I'll use glue. :-(

Uni, if you read this, please fix this glaring mistake. Thank you in advance.

The pen it's self is quite nice and the ink refills are what you would ecpect , but the finish on the pen scratched horribly. It took about one week of carry for the pen to look ruined.

Nice design, sleek and clean. Works as expected as a multi pen body. Very sturdy construction, doesn't feel like it'll warp or bend under stress.

I ordered this pen with the mechanical pencil, blue gel ink 0.5, and orange gel ink 0.5 refills. I love the way the pen functions, and it is gorgeous on the desk. Unfortunately, as other reviewers noted, the pen is far too slippery to use for extended writing of any sort. The inks are great, and the lack of hard stops between cartridges doesn't bother me, but this won't spend a lot of time in use because of the slippery barrel.

I recently started using the "bullet journal" approach to noting things in my planner, and wanted to use colors to distinguish to-do items, events, and notes. So I was looking for a three-color multi-pen to use. I'd never had a need for a multi-pen before so imagine my delight when I discovered that my favorite pen refill, the Uni-ball Signo gel, was available in a multi-pen! I'd also long hoped that Uni would create a classy metal body for the Signo. The Style Fit Meister fits that bill almost perfectly. I say "almost" because it's a little longer than I would like, which seems to throw the balance off a little, but overall I am very pleased with this pen.

Some of the reviews here and elsewhere have complained about the twist mechanism used to move among the pen colors. I was a little leery of this when I ordered the pen but have not found it to be a problem at all. When you rotate the barrel between colors to retract the refill, it stays retracted. And I found that the pen clip points to the color in use when you extract a color, so you can tell which color you are about to write with pretty easily. All in all, I'm very happy. The pen is well designed, looks good and uses the best gel pen refills on the planet.

This is a nice looking pen but honestly, I was extremely disappointed.
First, it does not turn easily to get the ink colour you want. I have been struggling with it since I got it.
It is not easy to find the close/neutral position either. I would rather not end up with ink all over the inside of my bag.
The gel pen tip, does not write as smooth as I expected.
I think a two star rating with this pen is being extremely generous.
Glad I bought a couple different pens with this order because this one I will probably hardly ever use.

I wanted to love this pen. Many pros: fits comfortably in your hand; nice looking; see-through center to see which color ink is being used; as you turn the top, the clip lines up with the selected ink so you know what color will come out; writes smoothly. So why not 5 stars? Because the grip is so slippery, I can't use it to write more than a couple sentences. I tried putting tape or a rubber band around the grip section (classy!), but this is not a fix obviously. Uni, if you're listening, please make a version of this pen with a better grip - or any grip. We'll buy it!

Honestly, I really wanted to like this multi pen, however theres a few glaring issues.
-good looking pen, the gun metal has this nice rainbow effect under light (Think pretty oil sheen)
-changing color action is very smooth
-refilling is very easy

-the top moves up and down to accommodate the mechanical pencil insert, and it gets a little annoying
-despite there being only 3 colors, i find switching between colors difficult. Perhaps just me however, the twist to change color gets a bit confusing because you forget which color is which and I find myself using the wrong color some times.
-the grip is slightly slippery and if you sweaty hands when writing it gets pretty slippery.
-the clip is not very smooth and engineered in a way so that it doesn't simply slide over fabric, you kind of have to force it
-the refills are tiny and do not last very long
-there is a slight play in the tip so it somewhat moves up and down with pressure which can get annoying.
