Love this MP.
Regular Alpha Gel MP (fat barrel) is great for long-duration writing; however, I
have less control on letters. This Alpha Gel Slim series give me wonderful
control, as well as comfort. Also, its design is sleek and chic.
"Skipping" never happened to my Jetstream pen... It always writes smooth.
Jetstream is unique, functional pen I fell in love with. Never smear, best ink
flow, so smooth. You cannot go back to regular oil-based ball point pens after
you experience Jetatream series.
You know, regular pens use gravity to make smooth ink flow. You shouldn't use
regular pens in horizontal position, (such as writing upside down, marking on a
wall calendar, etc.) because the air gets in through the pen-tip, and it
eventually causes line skipping. Exceptions are those "space pens." Power Tank
has this function of "pressured gas pushing ink" technology.
Con of Jetstream pen is bleedthrough... it doesn't, when you write, then after
couple of months, letters start showing oily residue & mild bleedthrough. So it
is not great for journaling, but excellent for business use, daily use, student
I have been using Dr Grip series over decades.
It was must-have item when I was in elementary to high-school in Japan. Great
grip, shaker function, and cool colors. Only con is that its grip gets
yellowish, sticky, and dirty over 1-2 years. I guess, you can buy a new Dr.Grip
every 1-2 years. Also, you can personalize it by inserting small-sized
photo/art. I inserted a picture of my cat.
For its affordable price, functional technology, and chic design. Its tip is
metal & reliable, you can write precisely with minimum effort. The grip is hard
rubber, which gives you maximum control & comfort. Clip is firm.
And its design... oh so beautiful. I got Stardust Blue. I just enjoy staring at
my Opt MP. This MP makes studying & writing such a fun activity. Great for
students, medical professionals, and travelers !!
It is so-so pen. I like the Surari ink; however, this pen is somehow making
ink-leak dots here & there. (Regular Surari ink never does that.)
I love the color of barrel, retractable function, and its clear Blue-Green
color. Lovely. My husband uses this as work pen. Not recommended for journal
writing... great for work purpose !
Great for using on a schedule book, highlighting & marking.
Not so good for long-time writing due to its ink amount. If you write a lot, you
better buy other Signo series, such as Signo RT or Signo(DX UM151). I use Signo
RT in Blue Black, and Style Fit for marking & highlighting.
I love the fact that ink refills are Signo line (water-proof ink). Much easier
than regular Signo series, because you don' have to push the cap back every time
you write. You need several times of practice to get used to its retractable
function (the clip part retraction is sensitive). I already have 4 of this
series (Uni-ball Style Fit 5 Color), and never bored with it. I have one in
every pen case, purse, and desk top pen stand.
I also give this series multi-pen as a gift to my student, and they fall in love
I give 1 Pen Body Component & 6-7 colors refills, so that they can enjoy making
their own "personalized" multi-pen.
