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.

Although the pens are less smooth than the more mainstream version such as Uni-ball sports I don't know why it is called sports, I find that these pens are just what I need for what I use them for. I would not recommend using them for writing notes or putting out sentences of ideas for others to see because the balls are too thick to read clearly and the writing is not really smooth.

I would use them for writing notes beside my notes to test myself. The thick ball would actually be good for doing those stuff because it would give a sense of calmness or serenity that I am just writing them beside it and not being serious and expecting that the writing would be clear.

Two words:
secondary [pens] and not "being in-your-face vivid" like the guy who previously reviewed this

Best Use:
Side notes on your notes that you do not intend to refer to them again (it can be to self-test yourself or making corrections etc.)

Worst Uses:
Writing actual notes with it or an actual essay for the teacher to read

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.

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.

I am devoted to Jetstream pens, and I love Uni-ball's blx series, so I quickly snagged several packs of these pens when I saw them on the site. For the first time ever, I am disappointed by a Jetstream. I have only opened one package - but the first pen broke as soon as I pressed the clicker to retract the point. (The top went flying across my living room.) The colors are beautiful, but skip far more frequently than in a traditional Jetstream.
