I purchased this pen about 3 months ago, and since then it has become the pen I
go to for everyday writing. Prior to this pen, I was using the Retro 51
Hex-o-matic Black Ballpoint pen. My main complaint about this pen was that it
felt scratchy when I moved the pen across the page. This is not the case with
The ink quality is smooth and bold. The weight is perfect, and the textured
grip feels great between my fingers. My only complaint is that it takes a
moment for the ink to start flowing. Whereas, the ink immediately began to flow
from the Retro 51 Hexomatic.
The speed at which the ink begins to flow from the pen is less of an issue with
me as is the feeling of moving the pen across the page.
