3-stars compared to the...
3-stars compared to the following pens
- uni signo dx (in sizes .28, .38)
- pilot hitec-c (in sizes .3, .4)
- jetstream multi-pen (.5mm)
and on the following notepads
- doane graphed notepad
- moleskin lined notepad
- crappy ol' yellow notepad
this pen (and it's smaller sibling, the .3mm) are great, and hold their own when compared to the others listed as far as quality and usage. however, i find myself reaching for the uni dx and pilot hitec-c line more often because both of those pens feel better constructed - they just feel sturdier, and less cheap, in my hand (rightfully so: they're both more expensive than the sarasa line.)
for a cheap, everyday pen, the sarasa line really is fantastic. i will note: in meetings and lectures when i need to scribble fast and sloppy, any/all of the finer-tipped gel ink pens started to feel scratchy for me, and i found myself reaching for a ballpoint jetstream and/or bic pen instead.
do yourself a favor: buy this pen, any of the uni signo dx pens, and/or any of the pilot hitec-c pens in bulk from jetpens. you won't regret it.
