| Pen itself is great....

Pen itself is great. Refill is terrible. I've got three of these now because I
love the pen itself. The gel grip (not a gel refill) is really good. The refill
it takes, however, is very weak, not too smooth, not to dark pigment--basically,
yesterday's refill in today's pen. That, however, does not bother me because I
found I can take the refills out of the Jetstream model of stick pens (not sold
here, though they have a lot of other great jetstream models here) and cut it
and it works in this pen. That marries a very comfortable pen model with the
best ink type for ballpoint pens I've ever known. I'm giving this two stars
though because most people are not going to want to cut and make fit refills
from other pen types to put in this pen, and the refill UNI sells with this
model and makes for this model is very disappointing.

I have been using this pen for the past 3 days and I have several comments to
First, the pen is more comfortable than Sensa pen and the weight is abotu right.
Sensa has patented grip but its grip is only as good as the grip of the pen. In
addition to that, average Sensa pen costs average $25. Comfort wise the pen
rates a five stars.
Secondly, the ink system for the pen is as horrible as Sensa's. IT IS WEAK!!!
You must press hard should you write on your paper. I hope the site offers more
varities of ink thickness for this type of pen.

This pen is the absolute best! The gel padding is addicting to touch - and the
fine point is great because it is a ball point, not the smudgy roller balls!

Love this pen! The gel is very very comfortable & the ink is very fine point &
makes you write really neat. Feels like it is a high-end pen.

This is the absolute best and squishiest grip out there. The larger barrel of
the pen gives a great feel and is ergonomically correct. To get the best writing
experience, I followed a jet pens forum suggestion and put in the Pilot BPS-GP
Extra Broad insert (you'll need to match up the length and snip it to size with
scissors). This combination is the best - softest grip out there and the most
buttery feel from the ink. I've tried a ton of different pens and nothing comes
close to this combination. Every time I let someone use my pen to sign a
document they stop and comment on the pen. Try it you'll love it.....
