If not THE absolute best,...
, April 4, 2012
If not THE absolute best, certainly one of the very best in my book! I have
tried many of the white gel pens in a search for the best one that I like the
most. This one is superbly brighter white... with practically zero
transparency. Uni-ball has certainly gotten this one right... a sure winner!
The pen glides effortlessly and very smoothly across the page as if it was on
glass. Leaves a nice wet and definitely broad/bold line. Drys quickly. If I
absolutely had to choose some sort of negative about this pen, it would be that
they don't last quite as long as I would prefer. They tend to run out of gel a
little earlier than your normal, everyday gel pen. I am guessing, but it is
probably due to the gel itself being a little thicker in order to exhibit the
smoothness & and boldness it has... well worth the trade-off.
I am simply enamored with this model pen! In fact I was so thrilled with the
performance of this white version, I ordered several of each of the other colors
of the UM-153 and now use them for everything! The gold and silver are
incredible on a black background also! I even use them at work now, also. I
use the Blue/Black one as my favorite signature pen. At just $2.50 a piece, one
can afford to pick up a stockpile of them. Thanks Uni-ball and JetPens!
