Such a great pen! the ink is very smooth, doesn't skip or blob. The feel of the
pen in your hand is fantastic, it has a kind of grippy, controlled feel to it.
The pen itself is a bit bulky, but that is really a benefit for me, having large
hands. The retracting mechanism is probably the best out of all the pens i have,
the spring mechanism has a very firm, efficient feel to it, and i have had
absolutely no problems with it. When buying this pen, remember to load up on
refills, you will not regret it! Trust me!

i didn't care for the ink in this pen. it's a light color. the pen does have a
good feel to it, but it didn't make up for that ink for me. it gives me a
feeling of the pen not working proper.

The refill in this pen (I have two which I found somewhere several YEARS ago) is
the nicest, never skip, never blob writing thing I've ever used! The body is
comfortable with a very nice grip.
The reason I only give it a 3 out of 5 is the clip. On both of mine the clips
did not last a month. One has been held in place by an o-ring since then, the
other missing most of the clip.
Both are down to about 1/2" of ink left.
I plan to try the Smart series to see if it has a better clip. AND to see if it
writes as good as my old ones!

This pen is designed for "extreme" writing situations, not just day-to-day
desktop or classroom use. You pay more for the ability to write on wet paper,
at all angles, and at any temperature. This pen writes very well under those
conditions, and is an excellent all-around performer as well. It isn't quite as
smooth as a Jetstream, but I find it smoother than your average ballpoint pen.
I don't use the red as much as my blue PowerTank, but I like the saturated
colour of the ink and its writing feel. I think the cost is very reasonable,
especially compared to pens by Rite in the Rain (one of my previous favourites),
or the Fisher space pen.
