If not THE absolute best,...

If not THE absolute best, certainly one of the very best in my book! I have tried many of the white gel pens in a search for the best one that I like the most. This one is superbly brighter white... with practically zero transparency. Uni-ball has certainly gotten this one right... a sure winner! The pen glides effortlessly and very smoothly across the page as if it was on glass. Leaves a nice wet and definitely broad/bold line. Drys quickly. If I absolutely had to choose some sort of negative about this pen, it would be that they don't last quite as long as I would prefer. They tend to run out of gel a little earlier than your normal, everyday gel pen. I am guessing, but it is probably due to the gel itself being a little thicker in order to exhibit the smoothness & and boldness it has... well worth the trade-off.

I am simply enamored with this model pen! In fact I was so thrilled with the performance of this white version, I ordered several of each of the other colors of the UM-153 and now use them for everything! The gold and silver are incredible on a black background also! I even use them at work now, also. I use the Blue/Black one as my favorite signature pen. At just $2.50 a piece, one can afford to pick up a stockpile of them. Thanks Uni-ball and JetPens!

Great for adding highlights and details to your drawings! The white ink is pretty opaque and even comes out on top of black surfaces or ink. It's not really meant for filling large spaces since the ink doesnt always smooth out and look uniform. The best use for this pen is to add small details to your finished drawings to make them pop.

I bought this to use as a correction pen. The ink flow is awesome, but I have to wait quite a while before I can write over it (I usually use a Uni-ball Signo or Pilot Metropolitan), otherwise the undried ink will clump all over the tips of my pens and prevent them from writing. It gets a little irritating having to always wipe off all the clods of white ink. :( I think I might just use correction tape rather than correction fluid...

However, as an ordinary pen for writing, it's absolutely amazing! I can totally see what all the hype's about! :)

I love this pen. I bought it to fix a very specific mistake in a black and white pen and ink illustration, and found that it worked really well.
I also find myself doodling victorian dress designs and wallpaper styles on post-it notes with it at work. The thick ink creates a smooth finish, and linear designs on paper are very appealing not only on sight but also on touch. I also find that the ink only goes exactly where I want it regardless of the paper I'm using, which I was very worried about.
All in all, I absolutely recommend this pen, either for white-on-black/white-on-gray/white-on-color illustration or for corrections in black ink work.

I bought this pen after seeing so many instagram artists use and rave about it. I figured I would try a different white pen since my sakura jelly roll died on me and I had faith in this pen. At first, the ink seemed to glide more smoothly than the sakura one, but I noticed it was not completely opaque and required several coats. After looking back at my older sketchbooks using this pen, I noticed that the sketches made with coloured inks' highlights turned into a lighter shade of the ink color. My sketches with my purple pens' highlights turned into a light purple colour. Most of my sketches are made with pens and I never tested it much with copic markers, but the thickness of the tip and the transparency led me to toss this pen.

If you're looking to add highlights to your PENCIL sketches, this is a great pen. If you use coloured inks like me, try a different one.

Super opaque and a nice smooth line, but it runs out so fast! Maybe I just use white too much...
