Not only does this pen...

Not only does this pen rattle, I find it very scratchy to write with. Unfortunately I am one of those people whose handwriting is highly affected by the smoothness of a pen. With this pen I write like a first grader. I hope this gives you an idea of the scratchyness we are talking here. I can imagine a person who does not put a lot of weight on the pen while writing and who likes fine lines might enjoy this.

I am so disappointed...
Verified Purchase
I am so disappointed :( I loved the Pilot FriXion Ball Clicker US Erasable Gel Ink Pen and when I saw that this pen was all that plus slim, I assumed it would write with smooth gellie goodness. Nope. Soooooo scratchy I can't even use it.

As far as I know this pen is pretty good. I am a rookie when it comes to fountain pens. It is true about how the cap does not fully snap on at the end. So if you have larger hands it could become bothersome. Seeing as how my hands are small I did not take issue with it.

Here are some things...
Verified Purchase
Here are some things I would have liked to have known before I bought this pencil. First of all the whole bendy thing. It is not implying that the pencil is flexible. When one bends it at the middle it clicks out more lead. This makes it easier to write quickly because you do not have to keep dispensing lead by pushing the top. Which brings me to my next point, the top thingy is not an eraser. I thought it was and am somewhat disappointed it isn't. I don't like to carry separate erasers in my bag. So basically the only thing that makes this pencil different is the large amount of grippy on 2/3 of the pencil and this bend-dispense function. Is it worth 5 bucks? No totally not worth 5 bucks. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Verified Purchase
This pens ink color is good and the erasability is fine. However the pen did not write smoothly. It is VERY sharp and makes an indent on the paper so even if you erase you can see what you had written. Also when writing with this pen I sound like Michel J Fox. The clip at the top is the mechanism that retracts the ink tip and when it is in use it rattles loudly. If I actually liked this pen I suppose I would make do by using a hair tie to hold the clip in place. I would not recommend this pen to anyone.
