After trying out a slew of pens for my pocketmod and also a moleskin large notebook (grid paper ruled) I found this pen at 0.4 size to be the best at small detail, smooth ink flow (small scratchiness I don't mind), least bleed through moleskine grid paper. It's the most balanced pen and best compromise for most of my uses, I will exclusively use it from now, except for the zebra-Clip-On-multipen which is great for all the colors but ink runs out way too quickly.

I Compared this pen with Zebra Clip Sarasa 0.3, 0.5 and I found 0.4 the best. Signio 207 0.5, and 0.38 were good but either too small and scratchy (0.38) of ink flow a little more than the paper could handle (0.5) leading to some smudging and less clean lines. Pilot G-2 0.5 and 0.38 were GOOD, but not as clean and nice on moleskine graph paper as the Zebra Clip Sarasa 0.4 which after comparing everything side by side was the best I could come up with. I also like the quality and feel of the clip (with a true joint pivot point as opposed to single plastic piece clip as in the G-2) and clicker was nice to click on and off when lost in thought :)

Cons for this pen: is that this pen doesn't have a RED cartridge and its not free.

At long last, I have found the perfect pen. Writes smoothly but still "grips" the page, great clip, solid and durable grip. I can't tell if it goes through ink quickly or whether I'm just using this pen more than all of my others, but refills at $1.20 (80ยข less than the pen itself) is worth it, in my opinion. A wonderful, wonderful pen that's a joy to use.

Loved this pen so much, I bought refills for it. It's great. I find the clip a bit pointless since I store it in a pouch with my other pen(cil)s, but the grip is great and not to squishy, and the pen is nice and sturdy. Great for my notes.

Excellent pen. I just bought mine at the Mitsuwa marketplace here in San Diego (a little bit cheaper in person at the local store, but still a good pen at any price). I love the clean, dark line this pen creates, and the smoothness is unparalleled by any of its contemporaries for a pen of this price.

All in all, I would strongly recommend this as your first choice if you are looking for something nice to use as an everyday writer. Excellent pen!!

After trying a wide assortment of pens, I have to say this is one of my favorites. The balance and flow is great. I especially like the grip, it starts pretty low which is great for people like me, who like to grip pens and pencils low. The only problem I would have have to say would be that its pretty thick. Really wish they had a slimmer version.

I'm not sure if it's just the way I write but the Sarasa seems to run out of ink with haste. Other than that small tid, it has smooth lines and dark ink.

Very good ink with a clever clip design that I found a little cumbersome in use. It's worth trying out.

I like this pen a lot. It is nice and thin and the 0.4 is a great tip. If you buy these you should also get the 5 color set because I also love those too!

This pen writes quite smoothly. I like to print really small, and this pen does well in that application. The ink does dry relatively quickly, but it still smudged slightly in a 'workbook' application. I am not sure what to call the paper type, it is similar to what would be found in any school book, slightly glossy with full color printing in places. To me the difference between the line size of this pen and .5mm isn't noticeable enough for me to choose this out of the assortment I am testing.
