Overall, this is an extremely well-designed pen. The grip is comfortable and the
body is thick--about what one would expect from a 4+1 ballpoint multi pen. Gel
pens use a lot of ink, and the thick body allows for refills which last for a
reasonable amount of time--unlike any other gel multi-pen I've seen. The colors
are dark, making written text a pleasure to read.
The one drawback of this pen, which usually keeps me from using it, is that the
blue ink is too dark. In low-light conditions, I am unable to discern the
difference between blue and black--a huge problem since there are only three
colors to work with and I like to color code things. There is a green ink refill
available. But, to my knowledge, there is no way to change the color of the blue
tab used to extend the pen tip. The perfectionist in me does not like the idea
of sliding a blue tab and getting green ink.
