I am really glad to see these available at Jetpens! The flow is ultra
consistent and I've never once had one skip on me. I've tried many pens, in
just about every category and when I really need something dependable,
convenient, and that is still a pleasure to use. I grab this pen for sure. In
my opinion it out ranks any other roller ball on the market... and yes, even the
rollerball pens 10 times the price... There is just something about this pen
that keeps me coming back for more! One thing I am really grateful for is the
ability to buy the blue black color in bulk instead of only getting one at a
time from the multicolor packs which are the norm, sold in stores. (When I say
this pen is better than other roller balls, I'm really only talking about the
consistency of flow. Other, more expensive rollerball pens will usually have
better ergonomics, and heft, but what I've found is that these more expensive
ones lack in consistency of flow and wetness.) This pen rocks, give it a try!!!
The .3mm in this case refers to the line width not the actually tip size. I
first noticed this distinction when using the Staedtler ".3" roller ball pen and
realized it was like a .7 ...So, just realize these roller balls in the .3 form
are not the same as their gel pen counterparts. = )
If I ever run out of paper, which probably won't ever happen, it's nice to know
that anything around me could potentially become my writing surface. So far,
I've tried it on glass and metal, and it really works well. On paper this thing
is a dream... it flows great and the ink is super duper jet black! It also feels
sharp, which is a bonus in my book!! I think this is destined to become my new
favorite pen! I can't wait to try it out on my bathroom mirror!!!
There is a trade off here. You sacrifice water and smudge resistence for pure
color saturation. This ink is the strogest blue I have yet tried, but it smears
and smudges too easily for me to continue using it. So in the realm of color I
would give it a 5/5, but in usability 3/5...
I don't think this pen gets enough respect! It has the blackest color ink and
best flow I have yet to experience. I can't stand other gel pens that seem to
write "streaky, dry and hollow." This pen is on the "wetter" side of things in
order to achieve such amazing consistency.
WOW!!! I have given up on all other pens (including fountain pens) because of
this simple yet amazing gel writer. The barrel is nice and long with a slightly
enlarged grip area that fits my hand perfectly. The ink is just amazing with a
super smooth feel and a dark vibrant color. If you have a cursive hand this pen
is for you!
