I tried these pens out on Campus note paper and while the colours are very
pigmented and vibrant, the ink itself does not dry very quickly compared to
other inks I've tried. For the price I suppose this is bearable but I'd prefer
an ink formulation which absorbs quicker.
This pen is a lot scratchier than the original Jetstream ballpoints as when I'm
writing, there's quite a lot of friction. As for the colour, it's quite a lovely
apricot orange but doesn't seem very pigmented unlike the darker colours in this
With the handy clip, I take this pen everywhere since it hooks nicely onto my
jacket ! Very smooth pen, comfortable to write with, though I personally prefer
thinner pens. The ink is also nice & strong. I get a lot of compliments on my
hand writing when I write with this pen. Thanks to my cousin for recommending
this pen !
The stylish and sleek design as well as its affordable price was what got me to
purchasing this fountain pen. After my travels in France and testing out a
myriad of different fountain pens, this one isn't too bad, but it's not too good
either, at least to write with on a daily basis. It's quite scratchy on paper
and is not very smooth but at $7.50 price it's a good buy, especially with the
extra fine nib which can be useful when writing in asian characters !
This is probably one of the smoothest fountain pens I have ever written with !
Even smoother than the the Safari model, which makes it ideal for everyday
writing, especially for those who write quickly as it is not scratchy AT ALL
like I've found many of the pilot fountain pens to be. I can see why Lamy is
marketing this to younger writers because it seems pretty sturdy and is at a
reasonable price. A really great fountain pen that anyone would be lucky to have
as their first. (http://mookxi.wordpress.com)
One of the best notebooks I've ever written in. The binder rings are thin so
they don't really get in the way of your handwriting. Plus the margins are
really useful for notes which is why I use these for my summaries before going
into an exam !
It's great that JetPens are stocking since they're so difficult to find,
especially in Australia ! (The only thing that would prevent me from buying
again is the shipping costs !)
These slicci pens are by far my favourite gel ink pen plus this particular
colour is great and my preferred default colour when it comes to writing notes,
essays etc ! I've bought a whole bunch of these & will be using them for a long
time to come :-D
