Orange finepoint is quite faint.
The writing sample shown is pretty close to what I am getting. I would not use this for note-taking, but a word or two is not hard to read. I will use this mostly for marking my name or initials on stuff, and price marking in grocery stores that have poor price lookup accuracy. I have used the black version and it writes on almost everything as long as it is not wet or oily. It writes on polyethylene, even.

I don't like pull apart ballpoints, so I got a Pilot G-2 Gel Pen - 0.7 mm - Orange, and cracked open the Multi Ball and put its filler into the clicky top pen. It fit perfectly.

Works great for small errors.
I had a variety of little white mechanical pencil erasers, but they were all too big.These fit my M-301 perfectly.

I rarely erase. In fact the original eraser lasted two years, until I gave it up to girl who lost her ear ring backer, Still, I soon had a calendar entry that needed erasing, So I turned to Jet Pens, since I could not find the erasers anywhere else. All the stores had fat erasers only.

Too light for wall-of-text
The writing is light, bright and painful en masse. Not a problem for what I wanted -- eye-catching edits, highlighting and marginal notes. Under my warm fluorescent office lighting, the ink is day-glo reddish orange, not at all like the sample on this web page.

The pen is quick and smooth, The rubber grip helps, but it is not the cushy pillow that the Dr.Grip pens sport. The pen barrel is mostly clear. you can see right through the ink. Also you can observe the click mechanism at work..

No clip!

I didn't notice from the pictures that it has no clip. Instead, it has an eyelet, an oval about 2 x 5 mm. I suppose you could put it on a lanyard, but this is a clicky pen. Most lanyard pens hook up at the removable top. At least it is enough to keep the pen from rolling far.

The ink and writing feel is about average. All these different colored pens come with black in a short, fat refill.

I don't think I'll use it much.

After trying it in a sampler pack, I ordered the full bottle as a gift. The aroma lasts well on the page.

Did not work, apparently all dried up. It managed a faint, gray 3 inch long line, but that was all..

This pen writes the skinniest of the 8 different "fiber dome" permanent pens I have ordered from Jet Pens. I use it for tiny writing in my 3x5 inch pocket planner and also for note taking. It works great on paper, with no bleed-through.

One odd feature is that it will not dry out and stop writing if left uncapped and unused, so sporadic note-taking is no problem.

This pen is now my every-day carry. It writes on most surfaces, including glass and plastic, so it's great for writing prices on unpriced groceries.

The Staedler Permanent Lumocolor shares the no-dryout and write-anywhere feature, but is bad for paper -- it has 100% soak-through. The Lumocolor is the best pen for writing on photos, whether front or back -- the ink does not transfer picture-to-picture. This "Liner" pen will write on photos but some ink does transfer if you stack the photos.

Nearly went crazy trying to get it going -- TIP: Remove the black ring in the middle of the pen by unscrewing the brush end. When screwed back together the feed can puncture the ink cartridge and soon the pen will work. The instructions did not mention that guard ring!.

It is a lovely gold color with sparkles. I wouldn't call it glitter..

Writes with a typical ball-point blue, I'd call it true blue. It is very fine, I would guess .15 mm when writing with a light touch. While nail-ish, it does write quickly and smoothly, and does not leave blobs behind. It is sometimes sluggish to start, so test it before important writing. Once it gets going, it is reliable.

It is ideal for tiny writing in a pocket planner or calendar. Unfortunately, it is too fat to fit in the leather pen loop on my planner. The pen is 9 mm in diameter.

I mainly write with fountain pens, but they are no so hot for my planner. I will carry this as my "stunt pen" for borrowers.

Very nice writer with the included black ink cartridge. The Violet color is very dark, more of an eggplant. My only knock is that it does not post well -- many times the cap has fallen off and now the finish is chipped on the cap. If you jam it on hard it will stay.

I use this pen daily with other pens in rotation with various colors. It starts up every time and writes with a light touch.
