I love this pen, I've probably ordered around $50-worth in the last year.

I'm a college student in engineering so I take a lot of notes; I'm also left handed and this is the only pen I own that consistently doesn't smear. The .38 is great, it makes my old .7 mm G-2's look like markers!

Sometimes when I write the tip tears a bit through paper but I tend to press really hard when I write. Definitely worth buying in black and pretty much every other color.

I am a gel ink pen fanatic and use nothing but gel ink pens. This pen is really the best pen as I have ever used (along with Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.4mm) because the ink flows really well, and there is no smudging, leaking etc... at all!

Best pen ever!

Really nice pen. Smoothest gel-ink pen I have ever written with. So smooth, that I found it a little hard to control, which resulted in somewhat sloppy writing. Still, rich, dark lines, without feathering is something to be admired.
Tested on 90g Clairefontaine paper.

Best pen ever. Writes as smoothly as High tech ones but has stronger tip and it won't break or sucked in.

Amazing pens for the price

Smooth, consistent ink flow, dark ink, no feathering (like felt-tip liners, e.g. the micron), i also highly recommend the 0.28mm for finer details, as well as the Zebra Sarasa (0.3mm.)

This is my absolute favorite pen. I picked up a bunch without much consideration when I lived in Japan a few years ago. After a few months, I realized just how amazing they were. It was the first time I had ever said to myself, "wow, what a great pen." Then after moving back to the states I realized they were impossible to find outside of Japan. Not even art supply stores had them. I finally found them on Jetpens-what a godsend!

They're the best!

I will admit, I have been a Pilot fangirl for a very long time. It wasn't until I became bored with my typical Pilots that I decided to venture out. And boy am I glad I did! I will admit without reserve that I am very quickly becoming a complete fan of the Signo line. I've never been a big fan of needle points and was slightly disappointed that the smallest non-needle point offered by Pilot was a 0.38. After branching out to other manufacturers, though, I'm finding plenty of alternatives. Now if only I could make a UM-151 fit my Pilot Cavalier...

This is my first one of a few pens purchased from I heard of this site on a podcast. I am a long time Pilot G-2 fanatic because it's what is sold here in retailers(USA). The Pilot G-2 was the best I knew, but they normally always carry the 0.7mm which is a bit too large. After reading many reviews, I decided to try the Uni-ball Signo DX UM-151 in black in sizes 0.28, 0.38, and 0.5mm. I am very pleased. They write very smoothly compared to my Pilot G-2 0.5mm pens. Also, if the fact that the ink does not bleed with water, it makes them that much better. Of course people will probably argue that taking off a cap is too time consuming but, to be honest, I think it keeps the tip from drying out much better than retraction. I also purchased a few other Uni-ball products and I am hooked on Uni-ball. I work in the manufacturing sector, and everything I see from Uni-ball is high quality, at very reasonable prices. Thanks jetpens, now I'm hooked and will never buy from office depot or staples again. :)
