I like the pen body....
I like the pen body. It's weight feels good and the jelly cover is nice. However, the eraser part didn't last very long; it broke off probably within the first month of owning it. The pencil trigger has also broken vs. the same type of trigger on a similar pen 1/2 the price which is still working well.
The ink refills, especially red and green, were poor in terms of flow and coverage.
I will definitely stay away from this pen and associated refills.

Agreed w/ the above....
Agreed w/ the above. It never flowed well and is very light. The reservoir is still 99% full, but is virtually unusable.
I came to replace the ink, but I'm looking for a different brand.

I've had this pen for...
I've had this pen for several months now. I returned for a refill.
Feel: - I like its very light coolness. It's thick enough for comfort but not heavy. Even though it's smooth and light, it doesn't slip like you would think a slick plastic pen body might.
Design: - I bought the pencil and 4 different ink wells. The mechanism works well. It doesn't stick like my Dr. Grip clicker does.
I like that the eraser has a thicker body/holder part. The body is recessed and thickens towards the base. It seems to me that this offers protection of the eraser body, unlike my Dr. Grip, which had the eraser w/ no body, just attached to the top of the pen. That design caused the Dr. Grip eraser to snap off almost immediately. This pen's eraser is still going strong.
I LOVE the gel ink. It makes for nice, smooth writing in delightful colors. People are not only jealous of the pen and it's multi-function, but how beautifully it writes.
Finally, you can't beat the price. I may buy another one and put different inks in it.
Well done, Jet Pens.

The pen itself is superb--the way it writes, the ink color and smoothness, the color and durability of the barrel. It took me a little while to get the trick of taking care not to jam it, but that rarely happens now.
The reason I gave it a 4 is that the eraser barrel is made of a delicate plastic. Unfortunately, mine broke off, so I no longer have an eraser.
Still, it's a great instrument. The refills are a tiny bit tricky to get on.
