For a near five dollar investment I would have expected more. For a pen of 0.5mm
width it does not write particularly smoothly. The rubber grip works well, but
the overall look and feel is probably inferior to the Pilot G-2 Pro. Ink is OK,
and dark, with just a bit slow drying.
The color of this pen is black with a hint of blue, or mid-night blue. Being
dark helps out the color consistency of writing strokes, which works for me. Ink
quality is very good, and the ink is delivered at a steady rate.
The grip is thin and all plastic. If you want a rubber grip, you can purchase an
additional Pentel Hybrid-Technica 0.3mm or 0.8mm non-retractible pen, and switch
the pen body.
