This is the best ballpoint...
January 18, 2012
This is the best ballpoint pen I have ever used. It is true to the uniball
jetstream line, writing just as smooth and easy. The reason I like it more than
the other jetstream pens is because of 1) the grip and 2) it's metal. The grip
is soft yet firm, making it easy to use for long periods. Being metal gives the
pen a nice, professional look. I have it everyday in my front pocket of my dress
shirts. Also, because it's metal it gives a nice weight to the pen, making it
feel more solid and I feel like I write with less force because of it.
A concern I had before purchasing the pen was the weight distribution. From the
pictures it was hard to tell if the larger, grip end would be heavier or the
slimmer, metal end. Having used the pen now, there is no need for concern. The
pen's weight is evenly distributed. If you tried to balance the pen on a finger,
your finger would be on the metal part of the pen, immediately after the gel
grip, in the middle of the pen.
