The sophisticated dark ink colors in Uni-ball's Jetstream RT BLX pens are subtle but catch attention for their uniqueness. These intriguing inks are created by infusing black ink with color. They dry quickly and are smear-resistant, which is great especially for left-handers. Writing is a smooth experience, and the lines are crisp. The pigment-based ink is acid-free, water-resistant, fade-resistant, and of archival quality. The pen is stylish with a dark barrel and sleek stainless steel accents.
This set contains 5 colors: Brown Black, Green Black, Purple Black, Red Black, and Blue Black.
Recently discovered the deliciously smooth Jetstream line and decided I needed a
few more colors! These colors would be great for a professional setting since
they're are very muted and not even as bright as the photo. They add just
enough visual interest to your writing without being in-your-face vivid like
some other ink colors.
The pens write with a solid line and do not skip. The inks all feel pretty much
the same on the paper, none standing out as better or worse from one another -
very happy with the consistent quality. The ink dries very quickly and does not
smear so these would be great for lefties.
The pen bodies are covered almost completely in rubber, giving them a good
tactile feel. The clip and clicker are solidly built.
These are some of the best ballpoint pens I've ever used, I'd highly recommend
trying at least one of the black pens from this line if you haven't already...
you'll be hooked!
Even though I usually prefer very fine line width, with those Jetstream RT BLX
1.0mm ballpoint pens I am changing my mind on that. They write EXTREMELY smooth
and the black infused colors add a classy touch to whatever it is you are
writing. Absolutely fantastic.
I absolutely adore Jetstream pens and love the colors in the BLX series, so it
pains me to say that these pens were an epic fail for me. I ordered several
packs, but have only opened one. When I pressed the clicker to retract the tip
on the blue/black pen, the clicker came off and went flying across the room. I
am unable to secure it to the pen again. I am also finding that these do not
write as smoothly as the traditionally colored Jestreams, and the ink skips more
frequently. I still enjoy Jetstreams, but this particular line is an epic fail
as far as I am concerned.
Had tried the gel pens first and liked the colors. The ballpoint pens don't
seem to have as much black as the gels. Also Jetstream regular blue, red and
black pens have nice bold lines and do not skip. The lines on these seem
thinner and the green infused black tends to skip.
