This pen has a stronger tip and better ink than others. I've tried the Hybrid
Technica and Hi-Tec-C pens and I disliked how fragile their tips were, you feel
like you're going to break it if you write too fast. In addition, the ink from
this pen dries significantly faster than the others', which is really nice if
you're going to be writing on a semi-glossy surface like taking notes in a
textbook, writing a card, or writing left-handed. After I tried this pen, I
never bothered trying another manufacturer's again.

This pen is fantastic. Due to a previous person's review stating that the pen
was too scratchy I bought this .28 size and the .38 size. While the pen does
have a scratchy quality due to the small size I found that I acually liked the
drag on the paper and that my handwriting was far more legible.
The black - blue color ink is a great mix of the two colors, that also looks
The pen ink lasted a lot longer than I had expected, and that was with daily all
day use. I will definitely be buying this pen again.

I love these pens. Bought a few in Europe and couldn't find any here in the
States. Thank you, JetPens!!
The ink is very quick to dry, it will never skip or sploch. Nor will it leak if
left in contact with paper or clothing. Amazing writing instrument for those who
wish to keep neat, fine print.
One thing to look out for is how fragile these pens are. Because of the
precision design, the ballpoint is easily damaged. This isn't to say that this
pen won't last you till it's dry, but don't drop it on the tip. I broke two like
this =\. Gotta kick my twirling habit.
Overall: Best writing instrument evar.

I bought this along with a 0.25mm Pilot Hi-Tec-C; I've used almost half of the
ink Signo DX and almost none of the Hi-Tec-C. The reinforced tip on the Signo
makes it much easier to write quickly without skips in the ink. The ink dries
very quickly, which is also a nice feature. I also have an fairly unused Pentel
Hybrid Technica 0.3mm which stays unused due to the same weak tip as the
Hi-Tec-C and its slow drying ink.
The blue-black ink appears black, even if you're looking at it hard. I'd
recommend getting a lighter blue if you want blue looking ink.

, April 27, 2013
My go-to pen in graduate school! After failing with the Uni-ball Signo UM-201
0.18 mm gel ink pens, I moved up to this 0.28 in blue black, black, and regular
blue. I loved these pens for quick class notation and studying for exams.
These pens saved my wrist during the infamous "blue book" tests that you
typically find in humanities and social science classes. Ball points, which
most students use during those strenuous writing feats, cause great pain and
soreness afterwards. This pen is truly a great basic pen, and I recommend these
when blue or black ink is required for a lengthy writing task.
