Verified Purchase
Being a huge fan of the EnerGel ink, I wanted a refillable pen option. This pen is very lightweight which isn't bad but I do prefer a weightier feel. The thing is, the body has such a nice shape I can't help but keep coming back to it...

However, I'd like to show a comparison of this to the disposable needle point EnerGel pens:

Tradio Combo:
matte finish
light weight
smooth plastic grip
plastic clip

shiny finish
solid feel (may or may not actually be heavier)
RUBBER grip (much more comfortable)
metal clip

For a $1.50 disposable pen, it's only .25 more than the tradio combo refill and extremely comfortable. And yet, I still constantly use the tradio - the shape of the body is a real pleasure so take that as you will.

I guess I expected more from an $8.50 pen, particularly since it has blemishes such as the spotty dye job inside the pen cap (outside looks great though) and the hole or puncture on the bottom of the pen.

With all that said, I don't regret the purchase and will probably continue to refill it.
I wish there were a metal version of this pen with a rubber grip - it would be AMAZING.
