NOTE: Have not used the entire ink cartridge yet, so this may change in a few
I have pretty bad handwriting, so I have to use thin lines of ink for my letters
to be distinguishable. So far, all my experience with .3 mm.> pens has been
good, but scratchy, and I thought I preferred that...
turns out I don't. Don't get me wrong, this pen is STILL scratchy (pretty
unavoidable for a .3 mm pen) but it is by far the smoothest at this tip size
(I've used the uniball .28,.18,.38, hi tec c .25, .4 maica, and mach 2, mach 3
.4 mm, as well as some others I can't think of...).
The line has YET to break out of probably 10 pages of dense notes on computer
The pen is pretty comfortable for me, though the grip is large, I have long,
slender fingers, so it's a positive for me.
My concern was, coming from capped pens before, that the tip wouldn't be "snug"
in the housing when you clicked it open (which was my experience before with
cheap clickable pens; you'd pick up the pen from the last letter you wrote to
start another one, and the tip would shift in the housing a little bit causing
the line to start writing on the paper where you wouldn't expect it) but this
was not the case. The tip is very snug when out.
The line is black, though can get a dark grey if you zip the line across the
page (this won't happen though, unless you're doodling).
No bleed-through at all on computer paper.
Clip is nice (but I don't care about that stuff).
Grip COULD be better (softer) but this is still good (just standard thin layer
of smooth-ish rubber over plastic). Better than plastic though.
I've written 10 pages of double-sided notes on computer paper, and I'm still at
about 2/3 left, which is pretty on-par I think with other pens. Let's hope the
tip doesn't break! (I haven't dropped it on the tip yet, but otherwise I spin it
around my finger when the tip is housed, so I think it's pretty good).
Overall, my new go-to pen for note-taking/writing.
