I write very small but love a bold, consistent line. Until I bought the Maica, I settled with the not-quite-dark-enough but smooth line of the 0.38mm Uniball Signo and the bold but slightly too thick 0.35mm Pentel EnerGel. I've tried other pens in the Hi-Tec-C line and found them too scratchy, but decided to give the Maica a shot because I'm a sucker for needle-point pens and it's very nice looking. I'm glad I gave it a try because this is definitely my new favorite pen! The 0.4mm is thin enough to accommodate my small handwriting but still lays down a nice dark line without skipping or scratching. I also bought the six-color set and have been very impressed with the quality of the colors. I should mention that I use Levenger paper, which makes most pens look pretty nice, but at this price point you might as well pick one up and try it yourself!

I hate for my first review to be a bad one, but this pen is the first bad recommendation I've gotten from JetPens. I read all of the great reviews and was excited to receive several of this pen in black, blue-black, and orange, but I'm pretty disappointed in this line. Out of 5 black pens, not a single one gives a consistent line and they're irritatingly scratchy.
For < 0.5mm gel pens, I'll stick with my Uniball Signo DX 0.28 mm and Pentel Slicci 0.25mm.

Sorry, JetPens. I just couldn't get into this one.
