Uni-ball Signo MF3 2 Color 0.5 mm Gel Ink Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Blue Body - UNI MUE405T.8
  This is an okay multipen...., February 3, 2011
This is an okay multipen. You are much better off getting the SARASA3. First, the gears of this pen is mediocre. Sometimes the twisting mechanism gets a bit stuck and the force required to turn it is uneven. Second, I have no idea how to advance the lead (button on top didn't work), and I didn't really bother trying to figure it out because i was already frustrated with the twisting mechanism. I supposed it just personal preference but I really like the push down multipens as supposed to the twisty multipens.

This pen isn't bad....it's that there are other better pens out there that I think would be better. Buy it if you are certain, but if you are on the fence about this pen, then I suggest getting something else.
Pilot Delful Double Knock Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Soft Blue & Yellow - PILOT HDF-50R-SLY

This pen is great. I bought it because I thought it looked silly but after using it for a bit, it's great.

Even if you don't want the whole tip retraction thing, this pencil is just a good pencil in general. The barrel is shaped in a way that makes me write faster without my hand becoming sore. The shakey part has this nice spring to it which makes it a lot funner to shake than any other shakey pencil.

The two things that I don't really like about this pen is that the tip (the little metal bit) sometimes unscrews and I have go do and screw it back. It's just a tad annoying, and not that bad at all. The other problem is that because this pen lack a long lead guard, the lead breaks a good amount. Of course it's not that big of a deal if you can shake it to advance more lead quickly, so I dont really mind.

This pencil, overall, is good. I really like it and it's such a lovely color that writing with it is fun. BUY IT!
Zebra Sarasa Push Clip Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Purple - ZEBRA JJS15-PU

This pen is really really good. I've bought a lot of 0.4 SARASAs, but this pen is by far the best. It's ink flow is really smooth--smoother than the other 0.4 SARASAs. This is the pen I immediately grab when I go to take notes. It doesn't have that scratchy feeling but it also isn't too slippery. It has the perfect balance.

This pen also has the prettiest ink ever. It's this beautiful purple that is dark enough to easily read but not too dark. It's hard to explain the beauty of this pen's ink. I have gotten tons of compliments on the color of this pen's ink--even from guys. They just have to admit that this color is really really pretty.

I used up another one of these. I will buy them forever and ever and ever. BUY THIS PEN IT'S SO PRETTY AND SO GOOD.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Nature Colors - Apple Green - PILOT LH-20C4-AG

This is a good pen. The inflow isn't the best out of all of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C's but it's still very good. This color is on the lighter side, so I don't recommend using this to take notes. I have tried to use it before, and it's definitely passable, but you're much better off using a darker pen that won't hurt your eyes when you go back to read your writing. I use this pen along with other pens for drawing functions on graphs because it isn't to overwhelming yet is still quite visible.

I like this pen. :) It's very good.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - European Colors - Tomato Red - PILOT LH-20C4-TR
  This is a great pen!..., February 3, 2011
This is a great pen! The color is beautiful and vibrant, and the ink flow is very smooth. There was no skipping at all.

Keep in mind that this color is really similar to Mandarin Orange. I got both of those colors and they are pretty much the same color....

Anyways, this is a GREAT PEN. GREAT COLOR. I love it a lot.
Zebra Sarasa 3 Color Gel Ink Multi Pen - 0.5 mm - White Body - ZEBRA J3J2-W

Great pen. Imagine 3 SARASAs in one pen. Awesome. Just pure awesome. The grip is a little thicker so watch out if you are grip-thickness sensitive.
Buy this pen.
Oh, only complaint is that the ink funs out pretty fast b/c the ink tube container things are pretty thin.
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - 15 Color Set - PENTEL BG204-15
  Slicci pens are great...., October 10, 2010
Slicci pens are great. The ink is so fantastic--thin yet crisp--and the ink flow is great. Sometimes, the ink will get clogged a little bit, but if you scribble with the pen for a bit more, it will be fine. I recommend this pen, and especially this thickness. Anything less than 0.4 will be a little too thin for me. 0.4 has a perfect balance of thinness and crispness. Also, the barrel is kind of small/thin, so make sure you are okay with thinner pens before you buy it. For me, it was fine, but I did notice my hand being a bit sore after prolonged use.
Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 03 Fine Nib - Black Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 1
  The ink for this pen..., October 10, 2010
The ink for this pen is very smooth and dries quickly. The lines are crisp and don't leak through pages. The only weird thing is that the ink cartridge hits against the barrel when you move the pen around and it feels weird. For a while it made the pen feel flimsy but all I really needed to do to dissipate that thought was write with it once again. An important thing to not is that even though it was fine 0.3 nib, it's still pretty thick. I don't use fountain pens a lot so I don't really know that thickness standard, but the 0.3 tip was still pretty thick. It felt like it was 0.7 or something.
Anyways, this is a wonderful pen!
Pilot AirBlanc Mechanical Pencil - 0.3 mm - Pink - PILOT HA-20R3-P
  This pencil is so good...., October 10, 2010
This pencil is so good. I love doing math and science with it because it's lines are so clean and thin and make it easy for me to think on paper. Get this pencil! My hands sont feel icky and sweaty after I write with it a lot and the grip is comfortable. I'm really picky with my pencil grips because I grip my pencil really low, but this pencil was fine. Buy it!
