Brilliant, short of perfect.
Engineer, artist, draftsman by training. I decided on this pen after researching
extensively and trying broadly. The ink laydown of this unit is perhaps the
finest I've experienced in any rollerball. The ink is extremely fluid and dense
but dries instantaneously. It supports nearly any style of writing from frenetic
to thoughtful. The pen itself is a bit on the light side, but the minimalist
ergo grip makes for very efficient and low-fatigue handling. Elegant in
appearance with a strong clip that is unusual in design but likely to be
extremely durable without making it too difficult to clip to a pocket or
retainer. The only thing I could not figure out was the pair of springs inside
the pen body. With those installed, there was an incessant tinkle-rattle. I
removed them with no ill effect on function. I just wish I knew what those
springs were for as they seem to serve no purpose.
