I really loved this pen. I loved that you could get refills. I installed my first refill and after a week of use, the pen has gone dry with plenty of ink still in the barrel. The frustrating thing about these small purchases is that it is REALLY inconvenient. Of course I did not think to get two. Why, when the first pen lasted a long time? But what if I did and faced with two duds? The inconvenience factor ratchets up the loss in trust in the product, never wanting to use it again.

It's a little goopy but I love the color. It makes all my other pink gel ink pens seem dull. I make a mess of my notes but it's go to pen for notes. I wish it came is smaller sizes, possibly 0.5 would be less goopy.

I have bought several 0.3 lead mechanical and drafting pencils from a wide range of prices. For me, this has been the best. It writes smoothly. There is no "wiggling". Frequently, I found that tips of mechanical/drafting pencils loosen up at the tip (hope that makes sense) therefore needing to be tightened every once in a while depending on usage. Best part, minimal breakage. I write hard and thus expect some breakage. Compared to all my other mechanical and drafting pencils, including ones of larger lead size, this pencil has had the least. It's unbelievable. The reasonable price is the icing on the cake.

Too scratchy, loud and not black enough.

I must have gotten a bad product. I understand that fine point will be scratchy. But my black, Hi-Tec Maica, 0.3 is way too scratchy. It's loud. Worse, the black is not dark enough. It might be ok for those who have small hand writing or need to write small on notecards and stuff.

Unless I got a bad product, the light blue is not that pretty. The picture is way prettier. If you are familiar with the Pilot Hi-tec light blue, the color is identical. Just bleh. I have a Pilot Juicy in Aqua-Blue, which I love and looks similar to the pic above.

I have several "light blues" from Pilot (different pen types) and now this Uni-ball.I wish I could give my other light blue pens away to the previous reviewers.

Great pink! It's a bright pink and truly fluorescent - super bright. Most fluorescent pinks tend to be less fluorescent, less bright. If I understand the reviewer above, the ink is pretty opaque. I initially had the concern that the color would not be rich enough therefore my extra firm grip would be seen. It hasn't happened to me yet. I love it.

The Aqua Blue is gorgeous. I love the color. It's just a little scratchy when I write.

Super bright orange - NEON orange, which is great for highlighting text. I love orange. Too often I find that other orange highlighters make my text look dingier. The images used do not do it justice. It's brighter and better.

Verified Purchase
The tip of my pencil does not grip the lead very well. Therefore, when I apply pressure as I write, some of the lead is pushed back into the pencil. It always feels like I need to re-click all the time. I may have a defect. But I am NOT a fan of the shaker pencils. I wish JenPens would have less shaker pencils in their assortment.

Verified Purchase
Only the greatest mechanical pencil to have survived my hands... I have broken the tips of most mechanical pencils due to hand pressure. I can't help it.

I am not sure what the difference is between a mechanical pencil and drafting pencil. After going though several mechanical pencils, I thought I would try the drafting category. I started out with a less expensive version, the Zebra tech in 0.5, light green. It has been over 6 months and we are very happy. It's my "go to" pencil for exams and note taking. I am testing another drafting pencil for note taking, a 0.3. I keep going back to this one.
