This is my first one...

This is my first one of a few pens purchased from Jetpens.com. I heard of this
site on a podcast. I am a long time Pilot G-2 fanatic because it's what is sold
here in retailers(USA). The Pilot G-2 was the best I knew, but they normally
always carry the 0.7mm which is a bit too large. After reading many reviews, I
decided to try the Uni-ball Signo DX UM-151 in black in sizes 0.28, 0.38, and
0.5mm. I am very pleased. They write very smoothly compared to my Pilot G-2
0.5mm pens. Also, if the fact that the ink does not bleed with water, it makes
them that much better. Of course people will probably argue that taking off a
cap is too time consuming but, to be honest, I think it keeps the tip from
drying out much better than retraction. I also purchased a few other Uni-ball
products and I am hooked on Uni-ball. I work in the manufacturing sector, and
everything I see from Uni-ball is high quality, at very reasonable prices.
Thanks jetpens, now I'm hooked and will never buy from office depot or staples
