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.
I am a big fan of jetstream inks and this pen is no exception. The color is fun,
but subtle enough to use for taking notes at work without feeling childish. The
only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the 1.0 mm tip is thicker
than I prefer. I wish the purple-black ink was available in 0.7 or 0.5 mm.
Love the color BUT this one skips. I have a Red Black that writes perfectly.
Coming from a 207 & Energels these Jetstreams write super smooth almost too
smooth?! It's almost like the pen is leading your moves.
A few things... I would prefer a bit of feedback off the paper/nib... But I
bought it for the ink color & short dry time. I still prefer the design of the
207, this is less refined, more rubber coating the body. Even though this is a
1.0 it's not a thick line.
