My favourite of Pilot's great Hi-Tec-C gel ink line, due to the barrel construction, which is slightly thicker that the regular Hi-Tec-C's and rounded. A pen that I use everyday at work.

Verified Purchase
One of the best 0.38 mm gel ink pens out there, with a great body and an even greater refill. It looks hefty in the photos, but it super light, and behaves wonderfully on any kind of paper, without skipping or problems starting.

This is probably the best beginner fountain pen, and best cheap fountain pen out there. I have fountain pens that cost much, much, much more, and still enjoy using this pen a lot. A great everyday carry fountain pen.

Verified Purchase
The good: this pen feels amazing to hold. It is silky smooth in the hand, and it looks really great - like a well-loved pair of jeans. The look means that I'm not afraid of tossing it in my bag, and the feel means that I'm constantly looking for reasons to grab it and use it.
The not so good: the refill started having problems starting only a few days after the pen arrived. So I replaced it with a Parker gel ink medium point refill, which is great. The refill (both original and Parker replacement) rattle a bit in the pen when writing. It doesn't bother me at all, but if it bothers you, look elsewhere.
I recommend this pen, especially with a Parker refill.

A great gel ink refill (I use it my Kaweco AL Sport Stonewashed roller ball), that is very reliable, and is both Moleskine and Field Notes friendly.

It works, but it is super hard to decently fill. I had to use a syringe to fill it properly. This is understandable, considering the tiny size of the Kaweco Sport fountain pens, but it is still makes filling this converter quite a pain.

A beautiful pen with presence, but much lighter than its Lincoln counterpart. A lot of fun to use, with great build quality and a great, lefty friendly roller ball refill. The only minus to this pen and refill is that as a roller ball (and not a gel ink) refill, it does dry quickly on the page, but the line also spreads, bleeds through on thin papers, and ghosts through on most papers. If you are looking for a rollerball pen - I highly recommend this pen. If you are a gel ink kind of pen addict, look elsewhere.

This is a very beautiful and very hefty metal pen, and was my first Retro 51 Tornado purchase. It's a roller-ball, with a thick 0.7 very black line that dries immediately on the page (unless it's rhodia-type paper) - which is great news for lefties. That being said, the line does spread on almost every kind of paper, and so if you like sharp, crisp lines, look elsewhere. There is also considerable show-through and bleed-through with this pen.
But I love its vintage look, and I love that it gains a dark patina after a little bit of use, and I love the way it feels in my hand - it is hefty, but it's also perfectly balanced, so it is still very comfortable to write with, even with my tiny hands.

Verified Purchase
This refill lasts me about 1.5-2 months of daily usage. The Zebra G-301 pen is great, and I use it every single day at the office as my "bullet journal" pen. These refills are what really make it a winner. Like most gel refills, they don't last long, but unlike many gel refills (looking at you Hi Tec C) they are reliable, and you can use them until every single drop of ink is gone. I've been using these pens daily for almost a year now and I have yet to meet a dud.
Highly recommended
