Uni-ball Jetstream ink is touted as enabling "smooth writing that becomes a habit." Regardless of writing pressure and speed, Jetstream pens write smoothly with low resistance, dispensing crisp, vivid lines. The quick-drying ink prevents smears, which is great for lefties. The Premier features an innovative air-click mechanism for soft touch retraction. The clicker design is modern and cool, with a pop of orange peeking through. The clicker button stays in place even when the pen tip is extended, so it doesn't rattle around. You can write comfortably using the pen's contoured and ribbed grip to fully enjoy the bold line and jet black ink.
I love these oil-based ballpoint pens. They're really smooth, and they put down
a really dark line, but they don't bleed through thin paper either. This
particular version looks spiffy and has a nice lightly grippy grip.
jetstream ink is terrific - incredibly slick and smooth. but the body's premium
appearance belies its unsubstantial and cheap all-plastic construction. the
clicker turned out to be annoying instead of cool - i can't tell if the
ballpoint is deployed or not without looking at the pen since the clicker is
always extended out, which also has a very vague and unsatisfying mushy feel.
stick with the regular jetstream pens.
So after they restalked them, I bought this with my friend. (we ordered two of
them). the ink is pretty smooth and dry really quick, and of course I love the body and
its material. The body is pretty thick and great weight, not too light and not
too heavy and it's not like shiny black, so it's not gloss at all. and it is
air-click, so the pen doesn't make any noisy when you click it. It is sold out
again lol, and I think the black one looks better than the silver body, but I
like the silver one as well.
There's nothing wrong with the pen per se, but the 1.00 mm description is
extremely misleading, since that's apparently the size of the ballpoint, NOT the
size of the line it makes. Using that number is uninformed at best and dishonest
Again, this is not a critique of the pen so much as of the way it's described.
