This pen truly baffles me. I absolutely hate it. I have tried to pull it back out several times to see if there is something that I'm missing that other love about it, and still it always comes up way short. It,..in my opinion,....is highly overrated. The expressive line that you get from it...is almost a non factor at best.

It also has a weird feeling when you write with it and the tip to paper sensation on this one just feels wrong.

Not a bad pen for larger scale sketches or for quick sketches at a comic con or something of that nature. Nice juicy line and pretty nice control. A pleasant surprise from Pilot. A little too thick though for any intricate detail in my experiences with it.

This is the ONLY pencil I use in my traditional sketches.....If it has any flaw,..it might be the tiny eraser,....but other than that.....it is my go to pencil. The .5mm beats the .3 due to the brittleness I found with the thinner lead.

I love the fact that now I don't have to click nearly as often (barely at all) anymore to adjust the lead

GREAT pencil....

I tried both of these pens and they were way too dry for my taste. I did not like them at all! I ended up tossing them out within a week.

Anyone know if the ink is waterproof or smear proof?

At first test on regular paper,...this pen seemed to blotch in every stroke. It took about 30 seconds to dry,..but writes super smooth. Like writing on glass. Not sure if I like this pen due to the blotching issue with every quick pen stroke. I will test on better paper next week.

Although the point does remain crisp,....the lead broke constantly even with light pressure.
Very disappointed. Maybe the next size lead will be better?

The pen seems to be a bit too dry for my taste. With a fast stroke, it tends to fade quickly at the end. It is still a decent pen though.

I've tried countless numbers of brush pens and actual sable traditional ink brushes for my cartooning,..and this little beauty has them all beat by a mile!! The rubbery type of tip offers control yet flexibility for an amazing result! Thick to thin lines are no longer an issue and no more spilled ink bottles or dried out bristles! What a pen! Congrats to Uni-ball for such a fine cartooning tool!!
