Uni-ball Signo UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.28 mm - Black - UNI UM15128.24

I thought that this 0.28 tip was a little bit scratchy. I ordered both the 0.28 and 0.38, and I have to say that I like the 0.38 better.

The ink flow is very consistent and the pen tip is just like a normal pen, unlike the slicci which has a fairly sturdy tip and the hi tec c which has a unconventional tip that looks nice and doesn't break unless you write extremely hard.

I would say that this is a good pen for people who want to write small, and is definitely better than the hi tec c 0.25 tip, which is tedious to write with.

Either way, I probably won't buy this again, due to the scratchiness, but it IS a nice pen and is recommended for people who like very thin lines and dont mind the slight scratchiness as much.

After all is said and done, I think a combination of Sliccis and Hi Tec C's would be a perfect addition to any pencil case.

The blue-black pen i got was veryvery inky, moreso than usual and I love it! it writes in nice dark lines. However, it does run out of ink fairly quickly. They are both very unscratchy and you can write nice and smoothly with them.

The 0.25 is way too thin for me, and I only bought it to write my finals notecard in (because its basically a notecard where you write as much info as you can. therefore having a thinner pen works very well).

After writing with both the Hi Tec C and Slicci in 0.4, I would say both the tips are fine. The Slicci tip is noticeably sturdy, but the Hi Tec C is fine too. Unless you write amazingly heavily, it is no problem. However, the Hi Tec C tip is nicer looking compared to the slicci one. Also, the Hi Tec C has a wider barrel and a hexagonal shape, which is easier to grip than the slicci's small circle shape.

Overall, I love both of these pens, and I think they're a lot better than Sarasas. Signos are also nice, but get a 0.38 because 0.28 Signos are rather scratchy.
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Black Ink - PENTEL BG204-A
  This pen is a lot skinnier..., February 24, 2011
This pen is a lot skinnier than I anticipated it would be, which would probably make it tiring to write with if you write for long periods of time.

One thing I love about this pen is that its very inky and stable, as compared to the Hi-Tec-C which feels like if you pressed too hard you would break the tip.

The ink is solid black and very inky, but doesn't smear as a lot of other gel pens this inky do.

Overall awesomee ! :]

Pros:
Very inky
Consistent ink
Stable Tip

Cons:
I predict it would run out of ink quickly...
Skinny barrel
