Retro 51 Tornado Touch Ballpoint Pen + Stylus - Black - RETRO 51 ASBP-1301
  So I've always loved..., August 18, 2014
So I've always loved the look of the Retro 51 and have a green one but its a bit heavy for my hand and the refills are too wide for my handwriting.

The Tornado Touch fixes both those problems. It is light and nice to use as a quick note jotter. The mustache is quirky and gets a smile every time someone notices it. I immediately swapped out for a gel refill and the screw mechanism came out quickly and was easy to manipulate. No issues with the stylus, played (and won!) the level of Plague I was stuck on. So definite win for the pen.

My only heartburn is with the twist mechanism. It is not particularly smooth and frequently I untwist the cap instead of retracting the pen nib. My guess is that the stylus makes a traditional knock impractical but I wish the unscrew mechanism was located in another place to avoid the crossover.

Just a correction for my original review. The buckle on the strap can move so it will lay almost flush with the jacket. Problem solved, dunce cap applied to self. :)

Its a close tie but I think this paper edges out my Kokuyo Campus and MIO notebooks. I use all three interchangeably but Maruman keeps getting grabbed when I need a new one.

It handles my fountain pens as easily as the fine line gels I use to write. Smooth paper, ink doesn't take forever to dry (like Rhodia and Clarefontaine), and I can use both sides. Only caveat is that my FPs are XF, but I think the quality would hold for a broader nib as well.

Color saturation of ink is good but this pen is not comfortable to my hand. Still for the price, its a good deal.

So, this is cute and holds 3 of my Frixion slims with room to spare, but the belt lays on the inside of my planner which doesn't allow the planner to close and makes that side lumpy.

I just happen to have some extra stretchy webbing to hack it with so I can move the clip to a better location, but it should have the clip on the same side as the pocket. Maybe it would with a smaller notebook but I can't stand the pocket size notebooks.

I love these pens, the erasible-ness (my new favorite non-word), the lovely fine tip and no issues in my Kokuyo notebooks. However, I managed to use all the ink in 2 pens in less than 2 weeks. I like them enough to pay for the refills but the capacity is ridiculously small.
